I will be transferring to Virginia Beach in August. I have visited the Hampton Roads area a few times in the past, but never lived there. So, I am really not too familiar with the area as far as knowing the good areas versus the bad. I will be stationed at NAS Oceana for 3 years. I am a single parent of a 8 year old, and would like to be in a nice safe area with great schools. I was looking at homes off of Dam Neck Road near Dam Neck Fleet Training Center. Is this a good area? Where are the best areas to live in Virginia Beach?

Thanks in advance!

VB as a whole is mostly safe, so it should be easier to find a good neighborhood over a bad one. Here's the places I'd avoid if possible:

One of the city's worst sections is along the border of Norfolk in the Bayside/Pembroke areas. Here's a zoomed-in map:



Within the blue shape are the smaller neighborhoods of Lake Edward, Weblin, Northridge, Campus East, Bayside Arms, Pembroke Square, Lynnbrook Landing, and the southern half of Aragona.

Others can comment on different areas in VB, like Green Run, but this chunk of the city is by far the worst in my experience.

Thanks a lot! This map is very helpful! I'll be in the area soon to find a place, and I will definitely avoid that area...
