    Users Assigned: Kazmi  

    A self-governing metropolis located in Hampton Roads city quarter of Virginia next to the Atlantic sea close to the entrance of the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia Beach is the most populated city in Virginia, and is considered one of the most classic beach destinations in the United States, with a reputation for being one of the few family-friendly ocean-front destinations catering specifically to the family. With a mild climate year-round, a resort theme, and surrounding countryside full of state parks, national wildlife refuges, and plenty of outdoor adventures to experience if the beach proves to be something you only want to spend half your time enjoying, Virginia Beach is easily one of the best places to choose when it comes to enjoying a mild and relaxing coastal holiday.

    In many ways, Virginia Beach harkens back to the times when the Victorian Brits first popularized the concept of a seaside holiday. This is a place where you can go, with or without your family, and experience a wholesome, entertaining, and relaxing holiday without having to worry about drunken frat parties, spring break crowds, or any other sort of interruptions. But beyond the beach itself, the views looking out over Chesapeake Bay are simply breathtaking, and there is plenty of national history to explore nearby, such as First Landing Cross, which is where the first English settlers landed in 1607, as well as the Cape Henry Lighthouse, first built in 1792.

    There is also the Mount Trashmore Park, and more than 18,000 acres of state parks and national wildlife refuges just outside of the city to explore if you get tired of the beaches. And since Virginia Beach is a resort destination, you can simply choose to relax and indulge in the all-inclusive setting of your chosen resort, simply lazing on the beach and enjoying the amenities. Either way, this is a splendid coastal holiday destination.

      • Norfolk

        Home to the largest naval base in the world, and featuring a waterfront packed full of typical American food chains, docks, plenty of off-duty sailors, and enough waterfront taverns to fill any seedy novel, Norfolk, Virginia is the second largest city in the state behind Virginia Beach, situated in the middle of the Hampton Road metropolitan vicinity at the entrance of the Chesapeake Bay. At first glance, this is not a tourist destination, and many people shrug it off due to the presence of the naval base, automatically assuming that there is nothing going on here above and beyond official military duties, but what many people fail to realize is that Norfolk is actually a major cultural hub for the state, with a thriving arts community, museums, operas, and plenty of cultural heritage to keep anyone entertained.

        From the nearby historic district of Ghent, packed with historical homes interspersed with tree-lined streets looking like they are straight off of a postcard, to the various restaurants and bars of the downtown district, Norfolk is anything but ordinary. With access to the beaches of the Chesapeake Bay, the once-famous premier beach community known as Ocean View—now on the rise to one of the city’s most desired residential housing after years of slumbering in the shadows—and plenty of shopping opportunities, Norfolk is definitely a thriving city.

        Make no mistake, however; this is a typical American town, which means there's lots of well-known chains of stores and restaurants, but beyond that the city has close to 400 years of history since things first began developing here, making it one of the oldest sections of the United States. Not to mention, this is one of the best places in the world to get up close and personal with the largest naval vessels to sail the open seas, which by themselves are reason enough to come.

      • Portsmouth
        Pretty quiet place with all types of people, and places to see. Lots of restaurants to choose from like spanish, chinese, caribbean, and fast food spots too. Shopping is not very selective, though they are building another plaza for shopping.

        There real estate is very great in pricing. Homes are new or even average and big too.

      • Chesapeake
        Chesapeake, Virginia is not only a small city of 222,528 (as of 2007) but also a county and a historic Revolutionary War battlefield. Chesapeake is one of the seven cities that make up the Hampton Roads or Tidewater area of Virginia, surrounding Chesapeake Bay.

        Chesapeake has two major shopping malls, three interstate freeways (I-64, I-264 and I-464), and miles of waterfront industrial, commercial and residential property. Chesapeake is a diverse city with urban areas as well as many square miles of protected forests and wetlands, including the Great Dismal Swamp.

        The locks at Great Bridge in Chesapeake at part of the 4,800-km (3,000-mile) recreational and commercial waterway along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States known as The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. The locks transition from the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River to the Chesapeake and Albemarle Canal which runs to Knotts Island in North Carolina.

        The American Revolutionary War Battle of Great Bridge, which took place on 9 December 1775 resulted in the final defeat of the British in Viginia and destroyed the local British Fort guarding the northern approach to the narrow natural isthmus of Great Bridge.
