Explore and Discover Hampton Roads
One of the most notable characteristics about Hampton Roads is connection to water. Located on the Eastern Coast of the United States, the region borders the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean and is interwoven with miles of rivers, most notably the James, Elizabeth and York. Access to these bodies of water offer residents a full range of water-based activities, including fishing, boating, swimming, and some of the best seafood in the country. Twenty-nine miles of Atlantic Oceanfront are accessible on the expanded white sands of Virginia Beach, with its famous paved Boardwalk and free seasonal events.
