Being a native in the Hampton Roads community, I love living here! Being near the ocean is what makes it worthwhile. I also love eating at the versatile restaurants in the area. There’s a huge variety of food restaurants you can go to such as vietnamese, thai, soul food, american, etc. The hampton roads community in itself is a strong one. Everyone always work together. There are great recreational centers for all ages with great weekly activities. the environment is pretty safe and as long as you play smart you’ll never get into trouble. Hampton Roads is the best area and I highly recommend anyone to call
it their home.

Like many Hampton Roads cities, it has high and low points, often scattered amongst each other. The Peninsula Towne Center and Coliseum, with Coliseum Central are nice, busier areas. The Phoebus area has its own feeling to it, and the city has Buckroe beach!
My wife and I recently moved to Hampton from Virginia Beach. The change has been great. Having lived in Hampton for a little over six months, we are happy to call it our home. The recent commercial growth in Virginia Beach resulted in traffic that was leaving me on the road for at least three hours a day. My commute was little over fifteen miles! Moving to Hampton has greatly reduced my commute time and provided for an overall higher standard of living. There are tons of mom-and-pop restaurants and bars in Hampton that are a nice change from the chain restaurant scene throughout the rest of Hampton Roads. I recommend the move to anyone interested in a great place to purchase their first home.
