ON THE BOARDWALK

The world’s longest pleasure beach just got bigger — and better. Virginia Beach now has a new boardwalk. And it’s getting a new beach as wide as a football field. Engineers are creating it by pumping in 3.2 million cubic yards of sand. Forget sand castles. Now you can build an entire subdivision-in-sand along the shore. See for yourself this spring or summer.
