Cities Near Joint Base Langley-Eustis

While many military family members call base housing their home, others choose to live in nearby communities. This area, known as “America’s First Region,” includes the independent cities of Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk, as well as other smaller cities, counties and towns of Hampton Roads. The cost of living in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia is just slightly below the national average, so rental housing and real estate is affordable.

The name “Hampton Roads,” almost 400 years old, has been in use since the region was a struggling British outpost in the 17th century. It refers to the large natural harbor where the James, Nansemond and Elizabeth rivers pour into the mouth of Chesapeake Bay. “Roads” is short for roadstead, which in nautical terms means “a place less sheltered than a harbor where ships may ride at anchor.”
