Young Professionals/DINKs/SINKs

Downtown Newport News has been making progress for young professional living in recent years and has even bigger development plans moving forward. There are apartment and condo options now and restaurants and bars in the area. Richmond is the bigger draw and the area is definitely more for families but if you’re looking this is a good place to start. Port Warwick is another option. It’s located in the Oyster Point area of the city and has a traditional village setting. If you want the vibe of an old town center with plenty of apartment and condo options and a town square with shopping, restaurants and cafes you should check it out.

Hilton Village


Hilton Village is one of the first planned communities in the entire country. Designed as an English-style village it has well-preserved historic homes, great public schools and safe streets for the kiddos to ride their bikes. It also has a shopping district with plenty of shops, restaurants and bakeries/cafes. Hidenwood is another great option for anyone who likes the idea of living along the James River. The homes are a mix of charming/water cottages and bigger new construction but the overall vibe is waterfront community.
