The City of Portsmouth

Portsmouth boasts six successful business parks, and a large retail sector including charming downtown specialty shops and restaurants, a conference center and 6,500-seat amphitheater. In addition, Downtown Portsmouth is about to undergo a $158 million facelift which is expected to result in about $29 million in revenue over a 10 year period.

Larger businesses in Portsmouth are often related to the maritime industry, such as cargo terminals, marine engineering and ship building among others. Portsmouth is also home to the largest U.S. naval hospital, and the oldest shipyard that employs over 7,500. The Port of Hampton Roads handles the largest volume in the East Coast.

Portsmouth Homes

Portsmouth homes appeal to a variety of lifestyles, and are located in several distinct neighborhoods reflecting not only the city's colorful history, but its modern urban areas and traditional family communities. The shady tree-lined streets, quiet neighborhoods, and river views are common qualities found in Portsmouth real estate.

They all have their own charm and unique style reflecting a variety of architecture dating from the late 1800's to the mid 1900's. Some of these areas include Cradock with its small cottage style homes; 20 blocks of Victorian and Greek Revival style homes along the Elizabeth River in Olde Towne; and Park View with its many Queen Anne style houses.

Downtown Portsmouth:

Portsmouth Amenities & Recreation

Portsmouth has a robust history and the city has made every effort to highlight its past through the many designated historic districts and sites dating back to the Civil War.

An afternoon in Downtown Portsmouth can be spent strolling through the unique stores and antique shops, outdoor cafes, or with a scenic walk along the Seawall. The city also has the largest children's museum in the state.

Water taxi or the Elizabeth River Ferry provide a convenient form of transportation to the waterfront sights and activities in Portsmouth and Norfolk.

A short drive will take you to Golf Bide-A-Wee, named the “best municipal course in Virginia” by Golf Digest, many hiking and nature sites, or Virginia Beach.
