Alvega - I forgot about the parking lot. :-)
Parking along the VA Beach strip is impossible. However, if your a guest at the Holiday Travel, they have a parking lot on the strip that you can use..
Ft Monroe is across the James River in Hampton. Their beaches are on the Chesapeake bay, but very very nice. This is a well kept secret if you're on the Hampton/ Newport News side.
Airplane Noise - VA Beach is several miles from Oceana NAS, You will experience airplane noise. By the way, I grade airplane noise. On a scale of 1 - 10, I graded Holiday travel as about a 7 ( not enough and the wrong type.)
