If you love the feel of a city you will love Ghent. Ghent offers a variety of activities, boutique shops, and restaurants.

Ghent is family oriented and offers an excellent choice of both public & private schools. It is also in the heart of Old Dominion University territory! ODU spirit is found all around Hampton Roads and especially here in Ghent. ODU football is a ton of fun and their Women's and Men's basketball games are always entertaining.
Downtown Norfolk expands the excitement with more shops, dining, and entertainment at your fingertips! The recently opened Waterside District on the waterfront is filled with eating and drinking establishments and frequently has free entertainment from top bands from around the country. Shopping is a snap at the MacArthur Mall and surrounding unique boutiques.
