Post Re: Chesapeake Options for Big Cat

Hello,

If you narrow down your choices to something around Tidewater, I could give you my view on the neighborhoods.

As far as pricing and availability go, this link might help.

Thanks for the link. Are you talking about Tidewater, VA, or is there an area called Tidewater? I'm not familiar with the Chesapeake yet.

Re: Chesapeake Options for Big Cat

"Tidewater Va" means the lower Bay - The Hampton, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Va. Beach area on the western and southern shore.

Hello,

The Tidewater area is also called Hampton Roads. The city of Hampton thinks that is spiffy. The rest, not so much. Tidewater runs from about Yorktown and Jamestown (flanking the two broad rivers, of the York and James). The city of Williamsburg is somewhat between making up what is called the historic triangle.

Further down the peninsula lay Hampton, and Newport News (named for Captain Newport). Then across the confluence of those two rivers and intersecting, more or less, is the Elizabeth river that separates Norfolk from Portsmouth. Norfolk is mile marker zero for the Intracoastal Waterway (also known as the great ditch) that goes all the way down to Florida.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intracoastal_Waterway


The Elizabeth river runs all the way up to the city of Chesapeake. Around the corner from Norfolk is the southern side of the Chesapeake Bay. Wrapping around is the city of Virginia Beach that also shoulders the Atlantic Ocean.

In all, Tidewater is a phenomenal area for sailing as well as many other recreational aspects; especially for those with a love of American History.

Kindest,

Sundae

Re: Chesapeake Options for Big Cat

You should try Hartge Yacht Yard in Galesville, MD , on Church Lane, ( the original yard has a railway that might be able to haul you) Hartge is pronounced like, hart-gee.
