Dive Right In
The Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay provide the boundaries for the Norfolk/Virginia Beach Community. The opportunities for swimming, diving, fishing and boating abound on the region's many rivers and lakes, as well as along miles of public beaches. Some of the best sport fishing in the country can be found here and on North Carolina's Outer Banks, which are within a two-hour's drive.
