Hampton Roads is the state's largest metro area, and Virginia Beach is among the nation's fastest growing cities. Virginia Beach has over 25 miles of beach, and a lively strip of restaurants, hotels, video arcades, haunted houses and water rides line the Oceanfront. This resort city has excellent opportunities for surfing, deep-sea fishing, hunting, golf, and many other recreational activities.

The Hampton Roads area is home to major military installations representing all branches of the Armed Forces. Norfolk is home of the world's largest Naval Base, Naval Station Norfolk. Aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines often cruise into port, while sophisticated fighter planes roar overhead. Just south at North Carolina's Outer Banks, is Kitty Hawk - the birthplace of aviation - where the Wright Brothers made their historic first flight in 1903.

Students can also take advantage of area theme parks such as Busch Gardens and Water Country USA in nearby Williamsburg. Sporting enthusiasts will enjoy the Norfolk Tides baseball at Harbor Park. Overlooking the historic Elizabeth River, this is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful minor league baseball fields in America.

Not only does Chesapeake and the surrounding Hampton Roads area offer terrific entertainment and recreation, it has also become a host spot for businesses and industry.
