We recently visited the convention center this early spring. There were 100*s of exhibits offering landscaping, pools, decks, and windows, and lots more. This is a really neat place to get home improvement ideas.

Our family was in VB from MN for a National Dance Competition which was held at VBCC. Venue was very nice, clean bathrooms, lots of staff keeping it clean. Concessions were average but that's par for the course at these venues.

There are a bunch nearby. Too many to mention. Google hotel in Virginia Beach area. All for the most part are newer than the one we stayed in. A few new ones are being built when we were in town. Good luck!
