The independent city of Norfolk, VA sits just west of Virginia Beach at the core of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area. Just over 244,000 people live across a land area of more than 96 square miles under the motto, “Crescas,” Latin for “Thou Shalt Grow.” Norfolk is bordered west by the Elizabeth River and north by the Chesapeake Bay.
As one of the oldest cities in Hampton Roads, Norfolk was founded in 1682 and incorporated in 1736. It’s considered the historic, urban, financial and cultural center of the region, with significant history as a strategic military and transportation point. Norfolk is home to the largest naval base in the world, Naval Station Norfolk, as well as the headquarters of Norfolk Southern Railway. In addition to an extensive riverfront, the city boasts several miles of bayfront resort property and beaches. Norfolk consists of many historic neighborhoods and has recently undergone a revitalization of its urban core.
