Again, with all hectic black lives mater and cops are terrible people situations going on, safety is definitely something to be somewhat concerned about. But, a lot of times, negative situations can be avoided with just a little thought.

Our Buckroe Beach village is a cozy and friendly neighborhood. People will stop and speak to you, still show manners and are friendly. My neighbors all say "hi" and watch out for the entire neighborhood. There are increased incidents of armed robberies in all of Hampton Roads, but I think that is in response to the economic pressures on our entire country
Hampton Roads is a unique area with a rich history and numerous military bases. Every location in the 7 cities is so different and offers everything from nature parks, recreation, shopping, arts, history and universities.
