My husband will be working in Williamsburg and we are looking to move within the next 30-60 days. I am trying to find a 2 bed apt under $800 (max) in a relatively "safe" area that is not out in the boonies!
I have checked out Newport News and Hampton as possibilities as they seem to be the only places in my price range...I would appreciate it if anyone can tell me anything about these places and more importantly if you know of any areas within Williamsburg/Yorktown areas that would be even greater still.

Try " The Station at Norge" brand new apt complex. It's right off of interstate 64 at exit 231 in Norge. Very reasonable rents. Has a pool , clubhouse, playground.

i would try the southern end of york county or the northern end of hampton. those areas are pretty safe, pretty reasonable rent, and wont take too long to get to williamsburg. Newport News is having a rough year as far as homicides go but all but 2 or three have been in either the SE part, East End, or Denbigh. As long as you stay away from those areas you should be fine. $800 may be tough for a 2 bed, maybe you should aim for a real good 1 bed.
