About Us

Greetings from the staff at "Hampton Roads". Our webmaster, site designer, writers, editor, publisher, graphics artist, marketing specialists, chief cook, bottle washer and keyboard greaser all welcome you to our little corner of the Internet.

Actually, this site is managed by one person ... me. My brother originally designed the site and managed it by himself for years. Now he's turned it over to me and I'll do my best to keep things running smoothly.

I hope you'll find HamptonRoadsVisitor useful and entertaining. The goal here is simply to provide truthful and straight forward information for area residents and visitors.

We grew up in Hampton Roads when it was still called "Tidewater." Virginia Beach still had a lot of farmland, Chesapeake was the boonies and Suffolk was somewhere off the map. Things have changed now and there's lots to see and do.

Want to get away from it all? The Eastern Shore is a beautiful peninsula of land between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. My guide has hotels, campgrounds, towns, events, concerts, sports and more. It's the only guide to the Eastern Shore that covers both Maryland and Virginia.

Norfolk Visitor specializes in Norfolk cruises, but it also has information on attractions and hotels in the city. There's plenty to see and do in Norfolk, Virginia.

And, if you're planning a trip to the Washington DC area, check out DCVisitor.com. You'll find information getting to the city, finding the best hotels in the best location, and attractions to see (many of them free!).

Thank you for your interest and support. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Virginia Beach & Norfolk

The region's two biggest cities are very different but both have so much to offer. The good news is they're only a short drive apart.
