What it's Like to Retire in Norfolk

Norfolk is a port city on the coast of Virginia, the second largest city in the state.  The population is almost 250,000. It is considered the cultural and commercial center of the region.  It is a major port and the Norfolk Naval Station is a big part of the economy and the largest naval base in the world. NATO's defense headquarters are here.  The city has had its share of urban blight although there are efforts to resuscitate that.  It is close to the wonderful beaches on Virginia's coast, including Cape Hatteras.
