Here’s my community guide for Shadowlawn, at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.
Shadowlawn, Virginia Beach
From this neighborhood, you can walk to the beach! Lake Holly and Pacific Avenue shelter Shadowlawn from the hustle and bustle of the Oceanfront, so you’re never more than a quick bike ride away from the fun of the resort, but you’re mostly without its day to day headaches.
Shadowlawn is close to beach fun, but also offers fast access to I-264, fine dining, great shopping, and lots of nightlife. Shadowlawn is close to Dam Neck Annex, and roughly in between the entrances to Fort Story and NAS Oceana.
Prices & Homes for Sale
Prices range from small cottages valued at $150,000 all the way to grand waterfront estates for $875,000. Take a peek below:
The Shadowlawn Community
Shadowlawn feels a bit like Bay Colony or Alanton – it’s a hodge-podge variety of older, remodeled, and newer homes. Some are 1930s era little beach bungalows, some are brick ranches from the 1960s, others are contemporary from the 1980s, yet more are new construction. Some are landside and some are waterfront. Lots vary in size, with some homes confined to small yards, while others have grand landscaping. The streets are shaded by oak trees, pine trees, and palm trees. All the same, neighbors wave hello as they pass you, and it’s common to see your friends walking by or biking down the street.
Shadowlawn gives you the best that the Oceanfront has to offer: free concerts, fireworks, surfing, fishing, indoor skydiving, mini golf, and more. Spend an elegant evening at the Princess Anne Country Club.
The Virginia Beach Oceanfront hosts many local festivals, including the Boardwalk Art Show, the Neptune Festival, the American Music Festival, numerous wine and beer festivals, the Patriotic Festival, and others.
There’s also lots nearby to keep you busy. You can catch a show at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, or see the komodo dragons at the Virginia Aquarium and the Marine Science Center. Local restaurants include Terrapin (specializing in locally grown and sourced food), and Isle of Capri (with ocean view dining).
There is lots of boutique shopping, especially around Laskin Road. A little further afield, Hilltop Shopping Center has excellent options for clothing, entertainment, or organic groceries.
Shadowlawn is served by First Colonial High School, Virginia Beach Middle and Cooke Elementary School. Private alternatives include Cape Henry Collegiate, Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School, and the Friends School.
