Virginia Beach, VA - The Longest Pleasure Beach in the World.

I got an opportunity to celebrate 4th of July 2013 with great friends at the famous Virginia beach, VA. Virginia Beach is a resort city with miles of beaches and hundreds of hotels, motels, and restaurants along its oceanfront. Although best known for its tourism but the military and agribusiness sectors contribute significantly to the city's economy. Tourism produces a large share of Virginia Beach's economy. With an estimated $857 million spent in tourism related industries, 14,900 jobs cater to 2.75 million visitors. 

The city is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the longest pleasure beach in the world. The 35-mile coastline is comprised of Virginia Beach resort area, the Chesapeake Bay beach, and Sandbridge beach. It is located at the southern end of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, the longest bridge-tunnel complex in the world.
