Hampton is perhaps best known for being home to the Langley Air Force Base, NASA Langley Research Center, and the Virginia Air and Space Center. Settled in the early 1600's, Hampton was incorporated as a town in 1705, and later an incorporated city in 1849. Hampton has a long history of revitalization, and locals from the surrounding cities visit the coliseum Mall, Hampton Coliseum and convention center and the new fishing pier at Buckroe Beach (a long noted resort area) frequently.
Because of its age, and the natural economic cycle in real estate, Hampton attracts real estate investors and builders which form an important part of the housing gentrification that is taking place. These investors purchase older homes that have come to their end-of life and renovate or tear down and build new construction it their place, creating a great opportunity for would be buyers that work on either side of the Monitor Merrimac or Hampton Roads bridge tunnel.
