What Bert Has To Say About Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News Metro Area

This complex area straddles the waterway known as Hampton Roads, a large bay that empties into the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. It is the largest metropolitan area in the state in terms of population, and offers an interesting mix of urban, suburban, waterfront and inland environments. The cities of Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Portsmouth are to the south of the waterway, with the large and rapidly growing Virginia Beach located a few miles to the east along the Atlantic Shore. Hampton and Newport News lie to the north across a long bridge-tunnel connection. The natural harbor makes for one of the best ports on the East Coast, and shipping and shipbuilding activity are paramount, along with fishing and seaport-related commerce.
