Chesapeake Virginia

Updated on September 28, 2013

One of the Seven Cities - Chesapeake Virginia

Chesapeake is a vibrant city in Virginia's Hampton Roads region. The community is a mix of urban areas, forests and wetlands, including a substantial portion of the Great Dismal Swamp. Chesapeake is the third largest city in Virginia in terms of population.

City of Chesapeake one of the best places to live in America.

MONEY Magazine has again ranked the City of Chesapeake one of the best places to live in America. Based on their 2008 analysis of more than 716 cities from across the country, MONEY ranked Chesapeake 85 out of the top 100. Chesapeake is the only city in Hampton Roads, and one of six in Virginia, to be recognized. The city was also recognized by MONEY Magazine in 2006.

"For Chesapeake to receive recognition from MONEY as one of America's Best Cities is a true honor," said Mayor Alan P. Krasnoff, "but not a surprise. Residents know that Chesapeake is a great place to live and work, and receiving what I call their ‘good living seal of approval’ will only make it easier to continue attracting new businesses and creating more opportunities for everyone."
