Can anyone recommend some nice, safe family areas in VA beach, where there's little or no jet noise at all?

I need to relocate for my job, but cannot be exposed to frequent loud noises due to hearing issues.

I checked out the noise area maps online, as well as some old threads here, but things can change over time and I'd like to get an updated picture.



Obviously anywhere near Oceana base would not be a good choice.


I read good things about Kempsville, and logic would dictate that anywhere north or south of it should also be ok, but it's hard to tell to what extent those areas are really jet noise free, and I could use some local advice.

Thanks in advance for your help, folks.


Paul

Paul, I'd say north-central VB would be relatively free of jet noise. Areas like Pembroke, Thalia, etc.
Like u stated, areas close to Oceana (Hilltop, etc) seem to have the most overhead traffic. And I notice jets flying a lot near the Oceanfront, in the lower blocks, south end.

I find jet noise in VB to be overstated, but I guess it would be different with hearing issues. Peace

Try living my lynnhaven mall and then tell me if you think it’s overstated. It was horrible. We live in southern VAB now and there is no jet noise.

OP it really depends on your price point.

Any Realtor that you deal with can show you the noise zones in VB. They are ranked from none to very high.

I can pay up to $ 2000 p.m.
There seem to be plenty of nice properties available for that kind of money - but I need to make sure I'm away from the jet noise.



Where in southern VAB are you, if I may ask?

I have had good experiences (little jet noise) in the very family-friendly areas of Glenwood, Salem, and Bellamy. I currently live in Salem Woods and work from home full time (typical office type of work, including conference calls) without issue.
