I have lived here in O.V. three different times; Military thing......And I can say, I have seen the yester tears of drugs, hookers, etc. Not me, but ya know what I mean. Today, A huge difference. There are nice neighborhorhoods, shopping, restaurants, the beach, free concerts on the water and the list goes on.

Ocean View is a very ecclectic housing market. The are areas that you should avoid when considering a home purchase. Ocean View has made great strides in the past 10 years and will become Norfolk's "Gold Coast".

I remember when OV had a beach boardwalk carnival and families walked and played freely all day. I also remember the pubs and stripjoints and drugs.

OV is very nice now ! I thing JB has done a decent job cleaning it up! although it does need another jump start........any ideas!!

There are many great deals in ocean view right now. Some areas are more desirable than others, it is best to get in the car with a realtor and see what is out there. You can also get information from my web site, go to the about me section for more information on east beach.
