Working in Hampton
Nice area, plenty to do! I give it a rating of three stars because we are still relatively new to the area, so I can't say that I love it, but it is not a bad place to be located. Very close to the water, restaurants, shopping, and easy access to larger areas and entertainment.
Hampton is FULL of amenities! It's not a very big city, but everything you need is in close range. It's extremely convenient. My only real concern are the panhandlers. There are signs everywhere explaining not to encourage panhandling and to call the number listed. However, "homeless" individuals continuously stand right under the sign begging for money, and drivers that pass by continue to cater to them.
It's so great here! The cost of living is less than for example, Virginia Beach, on the other side of the water. I have a consistent commute time: 30 minutes. Also, taking the bridge without tolls does not add to my commute time.
