Carrollton: Off Base Area of Town

Review

Carrollton is just enough country to have some peace at home while still being less than an hour from major cities/bases. While living here we have worked at Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth (30 minute EASY commute, NO traffic whatsoever) and Newport News Shipbuilding/SUPSHIP Newport News
(20 minute EASY commute, minimal traffic in the afternoon).

I love our post office, every one that works there is pleasant and there is rarely more than 1 person in front of you in line. There are great local restaurants both casual and high class.

We don't have kids but I hear the schools are good.

You can get quite a house for less money than elsewhere in Hampton Roads while still being close to the shopping in Chesapeake, Suffolk and Newport News.

I would highly recommend Carrollton to anyone looking for a little slower paced, country living without actually living in a rural area.
