Hello everyone, this morning I was notified that my orders have been changed to Langley AFB. I am from NYC and have never been to VA. I would appreciate some advice on which area would be best for a 29 year old single woman like myself. I have no children, so I don't care about the school system. I'm interested in an area that is racially diverse and has a good presence of singles like myself, with good shopping, recreation and nightlife. I would like to keep my commute at no more than 30 minutes and I can pay upwards of $1300 a month for a 1 bedroom. Based on reading the forums, Hampton or Newport News sounds like my best bet. Is my wishlist realistic or is there no areas that fit the things I'm looking for?

Hampton and NN sound like a good fit for you. In Hampton check out the Downtown area, and Colisuem area.. One apt complex off the top of my head is Addison in Col area. In NN, check out Port Warwick, City Center, Kiln Creek and Stony Run.

both areas I mentioned above will take between 15 to 20 minutes to Langley. The coliseum area is closer to 10 min. You dont even have to go interstate with both those areas and even if you do, you dont need to cross a bridge or tunnel

One complex you may want to check out is Falcon Creek. You can't beat the commute to Langley (about 5-10 min). The area is one of the safest in Hampton.

I'm a city girl used to having everything outside my doorstep, so this area sounds like exactly what I'm looking for Thanks guys for your input.

dont get too excited BK, this area is pretty sprawled out suburban, and you definitely need a car to get around. The above places I mentioned do offer a somewhat "city" or "urban" lifestyle.
