Welcome to Hampton Roads

Hampton Roads, also know as "Tidewater", is the name for both a body of water and the Norfolk-Virginia Beach metropolitan area which surrounds it in southeastern Virginia.

Some say the Tidewater region of Virginia includes Hampton Roads, the rest of the Virginia Peninsula, the Middle Peninsula, the Northern Neck and the Eastern Shore.  Others define it as the area east of the fall line, between the James and Potomac rivers, and west of the Chesapeake Bay.  No matter which side you take, you’ll soon find yourself wanting to “Go down to the rivah or shore, grab a bowt and catch some rays or some fish.”
