Moving from Seattle to Virginia Beach

  1. Hello,

    Due to career obligations I am facing a move from Seattle to Virginia Beach area (Chesapeake-Norfolk). (I swing trade part time)

    Anyone on ET have anything encouraging to say about life in Virginia Beach? Weather...housing...entertainment...dining etc..
    (I am married, late 40's, not looking for meat markets)

    I have visited a couple times and was not really impressed with downtown Norfolk...sure isn't Seattle or a major city for that matter.

    Don't expect a lot of culture in the area. It is a military town. However, there are some benefits. Lots of water recreation. The Chesapeake is very nice, as are the beaches, particularly in norther North Carolina. Weather is fairly mild all year, certainly much more sun than Seattle. D.C. is an easy drive when you need a great meal or more activities, and Annapolis is a great weekend location. If you are buying, prices are much, much lower than Seattle. All in all, not a bad place to be for a few years.
