Received a job offer to move to Newport News, VA in 3 weeks. Will be working near Fort Eustis. I am a 27 yr old single male who likes outdoors (hiking, fishing, beach, golf ect), nightlife (restaurants, bars, pubs more so than night clubs). Looking for a 2+ bedroom apartment, condo, townhome, or house with no more than a 30 minute commute in afternoons. Budget is no more than $1500/mo without utilities. After little research I've heard of (thats it, just heard of): Kiln Creek, Colony Pines, Hilton, Port Warwick, Olde Town Portsmouth, and Ghent... Do any of these sound like what I need/want? Thanks in advance.

Only look at Portsmouth and Ghent if you are willing to deal with tunnel traffic everyday.

I do it and can deal with it but many around here say they cant.

Also, I would check out Williamsburg.

Kiln Creek is for families, CC, PW, and OP are for singles.

I just want to throw in that Olde Town Portsmouth and Ghent will put you out of your work travel time, but definitley keep them in mind for fun on the weekends. The traffic is not bad on the weekends.

To the OP: have you visited Newport News yet and/or are you planning to before moving? I am from Marietta and I have to tell you that living in the Hampton Roads area of VA is a huge change from living outside of Atlanta. I think you will like the Oyster Point area but it's going to feel small in comparison to Atlanta night-life.
As a side note, my husband lived in Yorktown and Newport News (across from the City Center) as a single guy and preferred to be in Yorktown. There is a small beach in Yorktown and a few bars in that area and he is also one that enjoys the outdoors. He liked being able to bike along Colonial Parkway!
Good luck and I hope you love the area as much as we did!
