If you’re considering moving to Hampton Roads, then you have a difficult decision ahead of you. You could choose fun-loving Virginia Beach with its sunny shores and sandy beaches, or thriving Norfolk, full of innovation and fresh ideas. Perhaps you're looking for a quieter location, somewhere peaceful like Chesapeake or Pungo.
To a newcomer looking to make Hampton Roads ‘home,’ it can be a bit difficult to decipher. Allow your Chandler Realty to help you out!
Hampton, Virginia manages to combine the vibrancy of Norfolk with the serenity of Chesapeake (and it even has a beach).
Splash your way down to Buckroe Beach for some sunny shores (sans the crowds) or spend a day at one of the many natural parks in the area, such as Grandview Nature Preserve, Sandy Bottom Nature Park and Gosnold's Hope Park (which also features a BMX race track)
Enjoy multiple festivals throughout the year when you make Hampton your home, such as the Blackbeard Festival or Pridefest, as well as the numerous artists and entertainers who find their way to the Hampton Coliseum venue (Cirque Du Soleil is coming soon).
Stroll through the antiques, embroidery and collectibles shops of historic downtown Hampton, or take a lap around the more contemporary Peninsula Town Center. Don't forget to sample some of the local wares – try the crab dip at The Greene Turtle (served with soft pretzels!) or the famous sweet potato pecan pie at Mango Mangeaux.
Don't forget to unwind after all that excitement. Play a round at one of the many courses in Hampton: Eaglewood, Woodlands or the Hamptons Golf Course. There's no shortage of things to do in Hampton, or places to relax.
