The Hampton Roads area consists of  a group of cities along the east coast including Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Portsmouth as well as the Peninsula with Hampton, Newport News and Williamsburg, Virginia.

In addition to an array of lakes, beaches and waterways, Hampton Roads (formerly known as The Tidewater Area) is also home to many cultural attractions and historical sites. Amenities abound in this area – enjoy a round of golf on a championship course, go boating or kayaking along the bay, sun yourself at the beach, take in a museum tour or hike or bike on one of many trails. There are plenty of fun festivals and events year round including  Norfolk Harborfest, Shamrock Marathon, East Coast Surfing Championship, Virginia Wine Festival, and Boardwalk Art Show to name just a few.

Housing options vary with single-family detached, townhomes and condos in luxurious communities as well as intimate neighborhoods, quaint historic districts and modern subdivisions. The growing demand for housing encourages commercial growth offering convenient access to fine and casual dining, professional services, medical facilities and an abundance of shopping.
