Map Showing the Location of Hampton Roads in relation to Virginia and the Continental United StatesWhere We Are

Hampton Roads is a region of 1.6 million people nestled along the Mid Atlantic Coast in Southeastern Virginia.  The region is named for the deep natural harbor formed where the James, Nanesmond and Elizabeth Rivers pour into the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay - the same harbor that welcomed the first English settlers to America in 1607.

The region includes the cities of Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach.  Within about a day's drive for two-thirds of the U.S. population, Hampton Roads welcomes more than 4 million visitors annually to its many beaches, attractions, outdoor festivals and sporting events.

The area is served by air through the newly expanded Norfolk International Airport, the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport and by car and motorcoach through Interstates 64 and 95. 

Coming by boat?  We can handle that, too.
