About ChesapeakeNestled in the southeast corner of the commonwealth in the heart of the Tidewater/Hampton Roads region, Chesapeake was created in 1963 following the merger of Norfolk County and the city of Norfolk. Though relatively new as a city, Chesapeake was one of the first areas explored by Capt. John Smith in the 1600s. During the Revolutionary War, American and British forces clashed here in the Battle of Great Bridge.
Two branches of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway stretch southward from Chesapeake, providing boaters with a choice of two scenic routes to Florida.
An untamed wilderness is nearby at the Dismal Swamp. Boating access to Lake Drummond in the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is available at the Chesapeake ramp off US 17 at Ballahack Road and west to the junction of George Washington Highway. Birds and bird-watchers share common ground on the South Chesapeake Loop of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail.
