    Start of allergy medications before your get here

    Don't have allergies? Start anyway.

    ETA: Also... as you're looking for houses make sure that you're on the Norfolk side of the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel. Traffic can become a mess through there especially as we're going into the summer and there are vacationers here.

    on your wedding!

    VA Beach or Chesapeake for a place to live. Will he be flown out to the ship, then?

    welcome to the Big E...my husband is also on the same ship, currently deployed...one good thing about it is that he has already missed time on the deployment. norfolk is a touch of boring but i guess it depends on what your hobbies are... congrats on getting married i hope you enjoy it...i agree when she says start allergy meds and wish some one would have told me...as far as where to live idk what to tell ya i lived in hampton before moving to military housing and the traffic was awful that hampton roads tunnel is no joke right now i live just outside of gate 4 if i had to say just make sure it not near an on ramp to any of they highways they are the worst if u have any questions im here to help as much as i can
    Hated by many, but loved by thousands...which side you on?

    I would look in the Virginia Beach area. Norfolk is shady. I live in VB and like it. The pollen is crazy here so hopefully you don't have allergies or take meds if you do!
