Virginia Beach City/Service – Hurricane Fence

Virginia Beach, situated along the southeastern coast of Virginia, is an autonomous city with a population of 459,470 as per the 2020 census. Despite its predominantly suburban character, it stands as the most populous city in Virginia, the fifth in the Mid-Atlantic, the ninth in the Southeast, and the 42nd in the United States. Nestled at the Atlantic Ocean's edge and the Chesapeake Bay's mouth, Virginia Beach holds the title of the largest city in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, encompassing six other cities. This region, often dubbed "America's First Region," includes Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and various other smaller cities, counties, and towns within Hampton Roads.


Virginia Beach, renowned as a resort city, boasts miles of beaches and a multitude of hotels, motels, and restaurants lining its oceanfront. The city hosts annual events such as the East Coast Surfing Championships and the Something in the Water music festival. Beyond its recreational appeal, Virginia Beach is home to state parks, preserved beach areas, military bases, significant corporations, and esteemed educational institutions like Virginia Wesleyan University and Regent University. Noteworthy organizations such as the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) and Edgar Cayce's Association for Research and Enlightenment also call Virginia Beach their headquarters.

Historically, Cape Henry, located at the convergence of the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, holds significance as the site of the English colonists' initial landing on April 26, 1607, preceding their settlement in Jamestown.

Virginia Beach is recognized in the Guinness Book of Records for possessing the world's longest pleasure beach. Positioned at the southern terminus of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, it held the title of the world's longest bridge-tunnel complex until the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge in 2018.


Spanning 497 square miles, with 249 square miles of land and 248 square miles of water, Virginia Beach stands as the largest city in Virginia by total area and the third-largest by land area. With an average elevation of 12 feet above sea level, the city's geography directs a significant portion of its drainage to the Chesapeake Bay via the Lynnhaven River and its tributaries.


Virginia Beach's diverse economic landscape encompasses national and international corporate headquarters, advanced manufacturing, defense contractors, and locally owned businesses. Its strategic location and business-friendly environment have positioned the city as a hub for international commerce, hosting nearly 200 foreign firms with a presence or office location in Hampton Roads. Additionally, 20 internationally based firms have chosen Virginia Beach for their U.S. or North American headquarters, including notable companies such as Stihl, Busch Vacuum Solutions, IMS Gear, and Sanjo Corte Fino. Major local employers also include Amerigroup, Operation Blessing International, and the Navy Exchange Service Command, along with innovative smaller companies like Morphix Technologies, catering to the military industry.

In September 2023, it was announced that Amazon plans to construct two new operational delivery facilities in Virginia Beach. Forbes recognized Virginia Beach as the 45th best place for business and careers, attesting to its economic vitality and potential.


The city boasts numerous attractions in the realms of history, science, and visual/performing arts, establishing itself as a sought-after tourist destination in recent times. The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art showcases dynamic exhibitions across various mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, glass, and video, featuring both internationally acclaimed artists and those with national and regional recognition. Originating from the annual Boardwalk Art Show in 1952, MOCA has evolved into the museum's primary fundraiser.

For marine enthusiasts, the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, formerly known as the Virginia Marine Science Museum, stands as a popular oceanfront aquarium. It houses a diverse array of marine life, including sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, jellyfish, and octopus.

The Military Aviation Museum, situated in the Pungo area, proudly houses one of the world's largest collections of World War I and World War II aircraft, providing a captivating experience for history enthusiasts.

Entertainment options abound with the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater at Virginia Beach, hosting a variety of popular shows and concerts since its establishment in 1996. Additionally, the Sandler Center, a 1200-seat performing arts theater, enriches the cultural landscape of Virginia Beach, gracing the Virginia Beach Town Center since November 2007.

Virginia Beach is steeped in historical significance, boasting 18 sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Among these sites are the Adam Thoroughgood House, one of Virginia's oldest surviving colonial homes, the Francis Land House, a 200-year-old plantation, the Cape Henry Lights and nearby Cape Henry Light Station with a second tower, De Witt Cottage, Adam Keeling House, and others.

In the realm of holistic wellness and research, the Edgar Cayce Hospital for Research and Enlightenment was founded in 1928, offering a 67th street facility with a substantial private library on psychic matters open to the public. The headquarters building, showcasing traditional beach architecture, provides massage therapy by appointment. Cayce also established Atlantic University in 1930, dedicated to studying his readings and exploring spiritual subjects, reopening in 1985.

Virginia Beach's signature event, the Neptune Festival, draws half a million visitors to the oceanfront and 350,000 to the air show at NAS Oceana. Celebrating the city's heritage ties to Norway, September events unfold in the oceanfront and Town Center areas. The American Music Festival, a Labor Day Weekend tradition, treats festival-goers to live music on stages throughout the oceanfront, including the beach on Fifth Street. While the festival no longer concludes with the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon, the city still ushers in the New Year with the annual Last Night On The Town celebration every December 31.
