USCG Portsmouth is located in the middle of Hampton Roads, which means you have an incredible selection of places to live within just 30 minutes of the base.

If you want to live really close to base, you can move to Portsmouth. If you want to be in a more rural area, househunt in Suffolk. But if you want to live where there’s culture, history, and adventure, look for a home in Chesapeake.  

Chesapeake, Virginia is one of the seven cities that make up the Hampton Roads area. It’s located just 30 minutes from base in the heart of Coastal Virginia. The city of Chesapeake is home to several stops along the Civil War Trail, and its Great Dismal Swamp is nationally recognized as a stop on the historical Underground Railroad. Learn more about our nation’s history by visiting these places, as well as Battlefield Park.

But there’s more to Chesapeake than history. The city thrives on outdoor recreation, agriculture, shopping, and entertainment. Without ever leaving the city, you can enjoy kayaking and sailing, visit nearby farmers and, of course, shop the local boutiques. 

When you choose to live in Chesapeake, you and your family will never run out of things to do. This week on MilitaryByOwner, we're highlighting homes for sale in the Chesapeake area, all listed around $400,000.
