Ghent is one of the best parts of Norfolk. This town has the safest neighboorhood and great people to live around. If you are a coffee lover, there is a cute, quaint coffee shop on just about every corner. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, whether you'd like a family outing or a quiet place to have a sandwich. Not only is this town known for their coffee shops, but for their breweries as well. The nightlife is more relaxing and makes for a good evening with friends. There are trails to bike and run on, as well as, an open field to play baseball, soccer, or whichever outside activity you prefer. If you are a Colonial home lover, this is the place to be!

Great walkable, bikeable neighborhood. Near to shopping, grocery, restaurant bars and entertainment. Can walk to brewpubs and restaurants. Near to downtown and easy drive to Navy Base. Very family and pet friendly. Parking can be a small problem if you have more than one car.
I love this area, very neighborly and still urban
