About Virginia Beach

Named the best place to live in America by USA Today Weekend, Virginia Beach has a unique environment. Within minutes, residents and visitors have access to the popular oceanfront resort area, bountiful wildlife preserves and parks, a vibrant financial district, urban amenities, pastoral rural areas, distinctive cultural centers and museums, a variety of military facilities, and neighborhoods as diverse as the people who call the city home. With a temperate climate, 255 city parks and recreation centers, more than 38 miles of beach, and internationally recognized attractions, there is always something to do in Virginia's largest city.

Located in the Southeastern corner of the state, Virginia Beach is about a 3.5 hour car ride to Washington, D.C., and within a day's drive or less from two-thirds of the U.S. population. Its strategic mid-Atlantic location along the ocean and Chesapeake Bay is strengthened by a superior multimodal transportation network through which both U.S and international markets are easily accessed.

The Virginia Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area is home to the largest active-duty military population in the U.S., as well as nine major military installations representing all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
