imageIf you just can't resist a boardwalk, Virginia Beach has a lively one, plus really wide beaches complete with cavorting dolphins. But when it's time to come in from the sun, avoid the town's high-rises and motels and head for our Virginia Beach B&B, Barclay Cottage, which is one of the only remaining original beach cottages in the city. It's just a three-minute walk from the beach.

The 1895 inn has five guest rooms and two-story, wrap-around porches loaded down with wicker. "It's a wonderful place to have a glass of wine," said owner Steve LaFond. Bedrooms are furnished with antiques, vintage quilts, and Oriental rugs. The use of beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and bikes is included in the rate, and there's free Wi-Fi as well as a CD and DVD library.

In addition to a full, cooked breakfast, there are snacks available all day, plus early morning coffee service if you want to catch sunrise on the beach. There's also free parking. (Many places in Virginia Beach do not offer that.) LaFond's word to the wise: If you're arriving on a Friday, leave before noon to avoid the traffic.
