    You should be fine this time of year with the default route provided by your favorite map app, but we have our share of traffic at times so it’d probably be best to go ahead and check traffic within your app just in case.  Waze is a nice app.

    Word up if you are looking for more help with directions.


    The Quality Inn’s parking is about the best for trailers and big trucks. Street-side and garage parking information for the Resort area is available from Va Beach’s website.
