    I have just been selected to start GME-1 at Portsmouth. I have been browsing websites to find housing. The best I've found so far is www.hamptonroads.com. If any of you at Porstmouth have advice on the best living for an intern, I would appreciate it. Personally, I like having a yard.

    Hopefully someone will reply with some actual useful advice, but until then I'll tell you what I think.

    I lived in Hampton Roads/Tidewater for about 4 years, but this was 10 years ago. I lived at Chicks Beach and worked at mainside, so totally different than your situation. I think, however, that in general you want to 1) avoid tunnels or bridges as much as possible when selecting where you live, 2) maintain a healthy skepticism about the ongoing urban renewal in the downtown area, especially if you have a wife and/or kids, I would not choose to live there.

    Good luck!
