People leave garbage on the sidewalks and porches, and there is a bar on the corner. There patrons park on our street because there is not adequate parking. We have been woken up in the middle of the night by people arguing or laughing, just being generally loud.

In Norfolk we have a lot of historic naval attractions in the downtown area, In Virginia beach the oceanfront is the biggest attraction. The biggest local events we have are during holidays; Fireworks and Christmas lights. We also have music festivals with all kinds of music that come often throughout the year.
Flooding is bad, Tropical storms happen often, and when we have snow the city get crazy because people don't know how to handle it. This area can have both southern and northern weather quality. Essential items include an umbrella and winter coat.
