I typically refer to it as Hampton Roads but recognize all of the usages.

I didn't think it was. One would think that this "area" would have settled on a name for itself by now!

We have. The metro is called Hampton Roads.

If that light rail system really gets built, it looks like Norfolk will end up being the main hub. Pretty sweet.

Do you have any neat pics of the area? Especially mixed-use rowhouse-y streets?

I know you have Wawas in the area now so that makes you cool with me!

In all seriousness, though, I love this area. I haven't been there in a while, but from everything I've heard about the area it is one of the best examples of a metro area in the United States growing the RIGHT way.
