About Hampton Roads
Hampton Roads is located along the eastern coast of Virginia and North Carolina and consists of a number of cities and counties. This area is surrounded by several large bodies of water including the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and three main rivers (James, Nansemond, and Elizabeth). Within this location is a wealth of natural beauty, fertile land, businesses, and communities. Home to several military bases and ports, this thriving locale is ripe with opportunities for business growth.

Hampton Roads is home to the largest Naval base in the world and the only NATO command on U.S. soil.
