If you do not like the military, avoid Hampton Roads.

It has beautiful hidden beaches though which are often empty even in the summers because people are too lazy to find them and rather eat another burger.
But you came back to the Hampton Roads forum?

Why revisit a place you hate? If you/when you get out of your hell, why go back?

Because they're like scorned, bitter ex-lovers. They actually love the area but are disappointed and hurt with the way things went/are going and cant let go.

Wow, so I guess I'll be moving elsewhere in Virginia after reading this thread. Thanks for all the honest opinions, people. I've checked many threads and found some consistent issues that validate my decision.

Coconut about said it for me. This is a suburban area thinking of itself as a metro area. It so is not. It's not city here, and it's not country either. Suburbia about says it.

Life in Hampton Roads is peaceful and relatively crime - free. For the most part you'l be just fine if you have basic common sense. It's also a great place to raise kids.

To the person who said they now live in California, aren't they dealing with tons of their own problems? I'd much rather live here in peaceful Hampton Roads leading a simple, normal life than to be in California evading MS-13, bloods, crips, carjackers, wildfires & earthquakes. Not to mention the fact they have one of the largest economies in the entire world but are going broke.

I think most of the negative comments about Hampton Roads come from people who have relocated from big city type areas. People who have grown up in the big cities typically don't like moving to a slow, country type area.
