The Hampton Roads region is one of the most dynamic metropolitan areas on the East Coast, and Chesapeake is in the center of the action. Chesapeake has plenty to offer visitors: a vibrant arts scene, a rich local history, a variety of sports and recreational activities, and acres of parks and waterways - including the Great Dismal Swamp and Northwest River Park. Plus, Chesapeake is within minutes of Virginia Beach's Oceanfront and downtown Norfolk, and under an hour's drive from historic Colonial Willamsburg and neighboring Busch Gardens theme park, as well as North Carolina's Outer Banks. So whether Chesapeake is your launching point or your ultimate destination, it's sure to make for a great trip.
