Newport News is located at the southeastern end of the Virginia Peninsula, on the northern shore of the James River. Newport News, along with Virginia Beach and Norfolk, make up the Hampton Roads metropolitan area (also known as the Tidewater Region). The Hampton Roads area is known for its abundance of waterfront property and beaches, and its ice-free harbor. It also is known for its large military presence and shipyards.
