About Portsmouth, Virginia

Portsmouth is a laid-back, peaceful, historic seaport city in the heart of metropolitan Hampton Roads. The maritime region was first settled in 1636 because of the deep waters of the Elizabeth River and the abundance of hardwood forests. The ocean is only 30 minutes away, downtown Norfolk is a 5-minute ferry ride across the Elizabeth River, and Colonial Williamsburg is a quick 45 minutes up the road.
