My husband is being restationed in Norfolk VA then to Newport News about 4-8 months after. Im moving over from WA state and im currently staying with my in laws in PA. we have a 7 month old son, so i would like to move to a nice safe neighborhood. i took a weekend trip to VA to check out some of the areas, i talked to some residents in norfolk and was advised to stay away from norfolk and hampton. ive been looking into VA beach, chesapeake and suffolk, also looking in riverside, and CNU NN. I would really like to avoid being in the cities. Any suggestions on good neighboorhoods, or where to stay away from, and what the traffic is like in the areas? zip codes would help me too

Thanks

Safe would also mean not getting harmed in a car accident. That would point to living close to the job. I don't know why people don't focus more on that as you're a lot more likely to be injured or die in a car accident than be hurt or killed by strangers. Do you really want him risking death in a crash and your having to bring up that baby by yourself?

your right, putting my 7 month old sons life in a bad neighborhood just so my husband could drive to work in 5 minutes would make so much more sense. an accident can occur within 5 minutes or 30 minutes from your house so thats not a concern of ours. we care more for our sons protection, i know crime can happen everywhere as well. however, just like in WA we have our worse areas, streets, and neighborhoods to live, which i stayed away from. all im trying to figure out is good areas to look into weather its close or not to base. if you dont have good input on that then dont comment on my post.

Thanks!

You'll probably get better results posting your questions on the Hampton Roads forum.

Except that violent crime is at an all-time low. You watch too much TV news.
