Looking for a nice hotel to bring my dad to see some of the blue angels action during the Oceana NAS on Sept 16&17. Anyone know if you see the planes a lot if we got an oceanfront room?
You can see the planes no matter what. And ocean front room is always ideal, but you can stand on the boardwalk and watch them. Or just go to Oceana Naval base, any parking lot or pull off the side of the road.
You can typically see normal naval flights from the Hilton... we saw plenty of them fly over during our stay ... but as the other reader mentioned... you will not see the air show from the beachfront area of VA Beach
We went last year and elected to sit on the beach rather deal with the parking lot @ NAS. You will not be able to see much if anything from the beach. Perhaps from a high rise facing inland but don't get your hopes up.
