I am in the Navy and I have orders to Norfolk. I think that me and my family will deal with the commute and we will live in Virginia Beach.

I was looking at a few areas for apartments and was wondering if you could tell me if these were any good.

- Salem Rd, close to Princess Anne and Farrell Pkwy.

- Along Bonney Rd south of VA Beach Blvd due north of Mt. Trashmore Park


Any other suggestions? my price max is around 1100 and I am looking for a 2 bedroom apt with a washer/dry in unit.

Personally, of the two, I'd go with Salem. Bonney would probably be better for your commute, but Salem is, IMO, a more family-friendly area.

The townhome complex I was looking at is directly across the street from Salem Woods Park if that helps with where it is.

Next to Food Lion? I'd say it's okay but I don't go to that area after dark.

I was thinking of a different park. I would think those are fine. I've never heard anything about them one way or the other though. They're kind of off on their own. My only worry would be people walking through to get to WallyWorld but given the fact it backs them I don't think that's a big problem.

If you have a family, stay away from Linkhorn Bay. When I lived there a few years ago in 2010-2011, it was full of a young, single crowd who partied.... so it got pretty loud. I feel like it probably hasn't changed. The rent is relatively reasonable and it's a fun part of town. The other two would probably have more of a "family" feel to them.

We lived at Woodshire about 10 years ago. The managment was horrible make sure you put everything in writing and have then sign/give you a receipt for it. They also charged for water baised on occupancy not use (they even charged for my husband in Iraq and my child who wasn't even born before I called them on it). Overall I felt safe there but the apartments were rather run down at that time.
