You might be a little confused when you initially receive orders to the Tidewater region. Within just a few miles are multiple military installations, and figuring out which area you want to live takes some careful consideration.

The area is heavily populated and while there are bridges and tunnels for transportation, the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel system (HRBT) is infamous for frustrating traffic back-ups. As fellow MBO writer Dawn Smith shares, “It’s wise to choose property closest to your duty station.”

If you have orders to Joint Base Langley-Eustis, you will either be stationed at Langley AFB near Poquoson or Fort Eustis further north on the peninsula. Consider three areas when searching for a home: Yorktown, Hampton, and Newport News. Take a look at these homes within minutes of JBLE!

Yorktown

Yorktown is a popular area near Joint Base Langley-Eustis, and is rich in history. Williamsburg and Newport News are only about 20 minutes away, where you’ll find more dining and entertainment options.
