Relocating to Norfolk, Virginia

Relocating to Norfolk, Virginia

If you are considering moving to Norfolk, Virginia, you may be wondering what there is in this town for you. The good news is that there is plenty to do, no matter how old you are or what your interests are.

Norfolk is a great place for those who enjoy the outdoor life. Moving to Norfolk is ideal if you want to spend time sailing, kayaking, golfing or hiking, as all these facilities are within easy reach of the city center. There are also plenty of parks and gardens and a zoo, where you can keep the kids entertained at the weekend.

Virginia is also a popular relocation destination for those who want to retire. There are plenty of people living in the state who were originally from further north and who first tried retirement elsewhere, such as Florida, before eventually settling on this beautiful state with its milder climate. These residents are known as ‘half-backs’. It is estimated that the weather is good enough here for you to play golf for ten months of the year.

There are a number of financial advantages to moving to Norfolk. The average house price is lower than in other towns and Virginia has one of the lowest state and sales taxes in the country. Even with a slightly higher cost of living in the state, most people will still find Norfolk cheaper than places such as New York. You will also be pleased to hear that the state has a relatively low rate of unemployment, potentially making it much easier to find a job than it is elsewhere.
