New Home Communities in Chesapeake City County

Chesapeake City is a county with scenery as diverse and exciting as its culture and history. While it may only be the third most populous county in the state of Virginia, it arguably holds the most charm and appeal. Founded in 1963 after a series of voter referendums, the county is now home to a very noticeable number of protected wetlands, farmlands, and forests. It has earned quite a sterling reputation for itself, being dubbed Businessweek's 21st Best City in America by Bloomberg in 2011.

The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge was established here in 1974 as a protected area in order to preserve the marsh there. Its 112,000 acres are filled with myriad different forms of wildlife, including bobcats, Pine, Cyprus, and otters. It is free to enter and offers a host of activities for locals of all ages and interests, from fishing and canoeing in Lake Drummond to bird watching and picnic areas. Similarly, the Intracoastal Waterway which borders Chesapeake County provides locals with clean, cool water to splash around in and enjoy all along its 3,000 mile long coast.

Chesapeake's 351 square miles are not just filled with lush, green land and pristine waters, though. With the desire to protect its most beautiful natural assets comes a conscientious and passionate community which appreciates the scenery the area provides and is willing to cooperate in order to do the best for their community. Chesapeake Recycles Day is a perfect example of the lengths residents are willing to go to in order to demonstrate their commitment to their beloved county. Additionally, Chesapeake's website makes it very easy for residents to view and sign up to participate in city boards and commissions.

The median household income of about $50,000 for singles and $56,000 for families is due to the many great employers present in the area. Chesapeake City Public Schools is the main source of jobs for the county, offering everything from teaching positions to counseling opportunities to custodial and food worker jobs. The Chesapeake Regional medical center is also the perfect fit for medical professionals or those wanting to assist with administrative tasks or conduct psychological evaluations. Chesapeake County is also the home of Cox Communications, which is the third largest US cable service provider.

For fun, there are a seemingly endless number of recreational activities and new venues to try. The Chesapeake Planetarium allows visitors to take a peek into the depth of space and marvel at the wonders beyond our world within the very farthest reaches of our galaxy and beyond. Dismal Swamp Canal Trail remains a top choice for locals who want to remain fit while enjoying the beauties of nature. Meanwhile, unique eateries such as Amazing Glazed, which brings hot, fresh donuts to the plate, and the Amber Lantern Restaurant make for a tasty time. Chesapeake is sure to make you fall in love and feel like you are truly home.
