Good articleVirginia Beach, Virginia has been listed as one of the Geography and places good articles under the good article criteria. If you can improve it further, please do so. If it no longer meets these criteria, you can reassess it.

To-Do List

This article is more or less a stub, so there's a lot of development to do here. I've redone the Infobox in the upper right-hand corner, following the same format as many other cities (see Richmond, Virginia, Norfolk, Virginia, and Louisville, Kentucky as examples. One thing that should be added to the Infobox is a picture of the city flag, if someone can find that.

As the two major cities in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, I think Norfolk and Virginia Beach should stand out and have the most information overall. They're almost like the twin cities of Minnesota, although they're not called that. But there is a lot of overlap in infrastructure, culture, climate, etc. So we need to consider carefully the quality of these two cities first, before we get into many of the other cities of Hampton Roads. But ultimately, all cities should overall agree with each other in format, style, and accuracy.

A suggested organization for the major sections of this article might be:

  • History
  • Geography and Climate
    • Cityscape
    • Climate
  • Pronunciation
  • People and Culture - Perhaps the culture section could link to a separate article on the culture of Hampton Roads in general, since a lot of culture seems to overlap with other cities.
    • Demographics
    • Annual cultural events and fairs
    • Museums and Art Collections
    • Media
    • Parks and Outdoor Attractions
    • Performing Arts
    • Sports
  • Economy
  • Infrastructure
    • Government
    • Education
    • Transportation
    • Utilities
  • Sister cities
  • See also - links to various lists (famous celebrities, mayors, schools, etc)
  • References - textbook and other references
  • External links

See the like2do.com Resource: Featured articles of Seattle, Washington and San Jose, California for guidelines. The article on Louisville, Kentucky is also well organized.

Sunset in Virginia, Beach Image

How can that picture be of sunset when the sun sets in the west, and would not be over the Atlantic ocean, which is in the east. Could the image instead be the sunRISE is Virginia, Beach ? Leasnam (talk) 18:55, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Maybe that's the Chesapeake Bay ? I don't see waves big enough to be the ocean (?). Leasnam (talk) 18:57, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
More importantly, it doesn't illustrate the article in any way. It's simply a decoration (and a rather generic one) and as such is out of guidelines. I've removed it. John from Idegon (talk) 20:03, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Move Request

This article's title should be moved to simply "Virginia Beach"; partly because the title "Virginia Beach, Virginia" looks too redundant (equivalent for other big cities that are partial namesakes of their state; e.g. Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Jersey City). How do I make a Move Request? They did equivalent moves with article titles: "Las Vegas, Nevada" -> Las Vegas; "St. Louis, Missouri" -> St. Louis; and said moves aren't even supported by my redundancy argument.

Likewise, I saw that "Category:Chicago, Illinois" was recently moved to Category:Chicago; equivalent with Indianapolis.--Solomonfromfinland (talk) 04:42, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

I personally agree - the name seems redundant to me. However, the naming guideline appears to support keeping the redundant name - see WP:USPLACE.--Mojo Hand (talk) 14:22, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Historical population

The two historical population tables should either be combined or explained better. They may be for two different areas. User-duck (talk) 17:43, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
