I am strongly considering moving from NY to VA but am a bit confused. I visited the Hampton Roads area a few times and really liked Chesapeake and some areas of VA Beach. I do like the events they have down in Norfolk as well. Richmond I visited but didn't care for it, but it does have a lot more job opportunities there. And Williamsburg I heard is really nice but it seems more ideal for families rather than single people. I do want to live in Hampton Roads area but not sure if I should give Williamsburg a try...Need help about my decision...plus there's a job opening there!

I am from Long Island and vote Richmond all the way -- it's suburban areas remind me of parts of eastern Suffolk county without the traffic. Small downtown core surrounded by a ton of natural beauty, big water paddling and not far from the coast either but sufficiently sheltered from major tidal surges. The river used to flood parts of downtown but flood mitigation is something the city and surrounding areas have invested in over the past couple of decades.

Rockbridge County (Lexington, Buena Vista, Natural Bridge) is another good choice and nestled in the blue ridge mountains. If you want to be on the coast in a big city than I would go for Va Beach or Portsmouth.

OP, have you read through posts on the Hampton Roads subforum? If not, I would suggest doing so.

Good luck.
