Chesapeake is a city in southeastern Virginia, located on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. It was established as South Norfolk in 1691, though the modern city of Chesapeake only became official in 1963. Many people assume based off of the city's name that it is located on the Chesapeake Bay; however, this is untrue.
Today, Chesapeake is known for its swamps, bridge, intracoastal, and luxurious waterfront homes.
