If you are looking for a nice place to stay in VB check out the Holiday Trav-L-Park. You are about 5-10 drive time from the beach/boardwalk. There is a bus that comes through that you can catch if you don't want to drive. The campground has its own parking lot down by the beach so you do not have to pay for parking. They do allow others to pay for parking in the lot at night and during slower times. You are directly in the flight path of the Navy aircraft taking off and they can be a little loud at first but by day 2 it is background noise and you don't really notice it. But if you have younger children they really enjoy getting to see the jets so up close. The bathhouses were awesome and very clean. They have rain shower heads. I highly recommend the park and will be returning in the future.
