What to Look Forward to in Hampton Roads

The long winter may have residents looking at travel brochures, but there's no need! Hampton Roads has so much to look forward to over the next several months that cabin fever won't be an issue for long.

Some things to look forward to in Hampton Roads include:

  • Gardens. All throughout the region, spring flowers are some of the loveliest one could hope to find. Daffodils, tulips, crocuses, hyacinths, azaleas and gardenias are some of the posies that can be seen in upcoming weeks. Blossoming dogwoods, redbuds, cherry, Jane magnolia and Bradford pear trees dot the coastal Virginia landscape too. Irises, daisies, peonies, hydrangeas, lilies and roses begin blooming later. Gardens here are truly a sight!
  • Warm weather. Spring and summer usher in sunny days and warmer temperatures. These conditions mean residents can spend more time outside. Golfing, fishing, birdwatching, boating, surfing, hiking, canoeing, swimming, beachcombing and waterskiing are just some of the activities available in Hampton Roads. Outdoor living is great here too. Many homes have patios, decks and porches to make the most of this nice time of year.
  • Annual events. There are so many fun events that take place in the upcoming months. Chesapeake has the Chesapeake Jubilee, Norfolk has the Norfolk Harborfest and Virginia Beach has the Boardwalk Art Show. These events are only a sampling of what this region offers.
  • Visitors. The pretty scenery and nice weather attract all types of visitors. Friends and family can come to stay for a while but they're only the beginning. Hummingbirds and monarch butterflies stop by the area to refuel on flowering plants before heading on to other destinations. A few types of sea turtles come to nest on the shores of Virginia Beach during the summer.

Times are looking up; Hampton Roads has so many fun activities and events just waiting for you!
