Hampton Roads, Va

In my opinion, the most unique metro in America. Combination of 7 medium sized cities ranging in population from 450,000 [Virginia Beach] to 80,000 [Suffolk] and everything in between. Extremely diverse region and economy including the largest military installation, third largest container port, various fortune 500 companies, farming, shipbuilding, hi tech, medicine, etc. AAA and AHL sports, and an arrangement of good colleges. Strategically located on the east coast.

But in your opinion, is it a major metro, or a small town?

Have to agree as well. Not like it is a HUGE metro, but it isn't going to be mistaken for Mayberry RFD anytime soon either.

Yeah, it was pretty rough..

You know we don't get much exposure in Hampton Roads because I got excited seeing the Virginia Beach Oceanfront on NBC Nightly News, theToday Show, and the Weather Channel.

Hampton Roads is a small metro. The military people are the only ones that gives Hampton Roads life. And the tourists during the summer.
