Alanton Neighborhood In Virginia Beach
What a super neighborhood! Alanton has some really great homes and some SUPER views. The neighborhood is tucked away off Great Neck Road against the water. It juts out into the water between Linkhorn Bay and Broad Bay. Many of the waterfront homes have views of the opposite shore where we have First Landing State Park and Narrows Beach. The neighborhood has a great rural feel with mature trees, flowers, and often, 1 acre+ yards. Boaters in this area access the ocean from the Lynnhaven Inlet, under the Lesner Bridge and through the Chesapeake Bay.
Across the water is First Landing State Park and "The Narrows" Beach. The park boasts swimming (at your own risk, no life-guards), history and nature programs, hiking trails, biking trails, picnic shelters, a boat launch, cabins and 2,888 acres with 20 miles of trails! In Alanton, you are a few feet away from an amazing vacation destination!
It might be as many as 15 minutes to drive there. But it is a 3 minute kayak trip! Call the park for more information at 1-800-933-PARK.
