[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3]What a great find in this site! I’ve already learned here about schools for both VA beach and Chesapeake areas.[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3]My husband is military and will be stationed at NS Norfolk. I know inevitably he will deal with traffic issues, but as there really isn’t a way to get around this...he has given me the GO to find somewhere myself and our two daughters will enjoy living. My children are both involved in dance and I am a runner...any thoughts on an area that might fit with our lifestyle? We initially thought me might rent a home around $2K a month, but I want to settle and keep my girls situated for our entire stay by buying a place around $350K range. It is possible we may make this our home for many years.[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3]I’ve been to Little Creek and the VA beach area once about six years ago. Wished I’d paid more attention. I do realize some of the issues with crime surrounding Norfolk and it is unfortunate, there are some beautiful, old homes in that area. Any comparisons or insight on either area would be greatly appreciated. [/SIZE][/FONT]

Chesapeake itself is pretty boring for the most part, mainly cookie cutter subdivisions and strip malls. $350K won't get you a whole lot in the better school districts. I would definitely rent first.

There are 100s of posts on here about military transferring in and looking for the best area to live so you may want to check some of those out as well.
