    When first moving to Washington, D.C., I didn't know many people outside of the office. InterNations has changed that with some exciting events.

Living in Virginia Beach

Playing a big part in the state of Virginia, Virginia Beach is one of the most populated cities in the whole of the US. A vibrant city with a popular beach and a rich history, Virginia Beach is predominantly a resort town, owing to its nickname ’The Resort City’. Besides its friendly native population, Virginia Beach is made up of a patchwork of hotels, motels, and holiday homes - meaning there are plenty of expatriates living there and passing through, many of whom you can try and get in touch with on the InterNations discussion groups and forums. Whether you are there for business or pleasure, expats in Virginia Beach are bound to find themselves busy even during their leisure time, whether they spend it relaxing along the miles of sandy beaches, or getting stuck in to the town’s nightlife. Expats in Virginia Beach may furthermore be interested in exploring the vibrant history of the surrounding area, which dates back to the very beginning of American history, with the first settlers landing in nearby Jamestown.

An amazing community is waiting for you!

Moving to Virginia Beach

For any expat who is moving to the Virginia Beach area for only a short while, there are many options for temporary accommodation within the city - there are a great number of quality hotels, many of which are only a short distance from the beach. And for expatriates moving to Virginia Beach for a longer stay, there are many residential areas dotted inside and around the city, to suit any taste. The city provides the typical services and entertainment for any large American city, many of which are dotted along the coast, benefiting from the picturesque views. Hot-spots may be pointed out by fellow InterNations members in the forums, but those looking for more direct socializing opportunities could use InterNations to self-organize a meet up with fellow members who are also living in Virginia Beach and go exploring around the city together.

Working in Virginia Beach

The Virginia Beach’s reputation as a resort city extends to its local economy; playing host to people from all around the world, the majority of jobs and business in the city are found in the tourism trade. Further employment opportunities in Virginia Beach for an expatriate can be found in the large military economy, the booming agriculture industry, or with one of the many large major companies that are based in Virginia Beach. Whatever your exact occupation while working in Virginia Beach, you can use InterNations not only to socialize, but also to network with fellow expats living in Virginia Beach, Virginia, or across the world. And further connections can of course always be made at any of the business events held in the local Convention Center.
