Can anyone give me any info on this town? How is the crime in Hampton? Is this the same place as "The Hamptons" where al the wealthy people have vacation homes and such? What is the cost of living like? I have no kids, so schools are not reaaly a major concern for me, but any other information would be great!

Default hmmm

i lived in hampton for a long time b4 moving to dc. i think hampton is a pretty good place to live. it has a very middle-class feel to it and the city has a huge black and military population. there is really no rich section to it unless you want to live on buckaroe beach and avoid its surrounding area. the northside is a lot cleaner than the southside. crime has never been a huge problem unlike in its neighbor newport news. you will always see police out handling their business. if you want to buy i would suggest a subdivison called michael's woods on the northside close to york county. the problem is that prices have gone up since i left. you may need in the range of $200k-$350k to buy a sfh. but a townhome can be had for a reasonable price. i dont know about apts but expect to pay $700-$800 for one not in the ghetto. traffic can be bad there, but not dc bad. so all in all, you should enjoy hampton. i'm even thinkin bout movin back.
