Bay Kia attracts customers from a number of surrounding cities and communities seeking new and used cars, but many of our customers are from right here in Norfolk, VA, at the core of the Hampton Roads metro area.
Norfolk is home to more than 240,000 people, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, spread over a total area of 96.3 square miles (of which nearly half - 42.6 square miles - is water). It is the second-largest city (behind Virginia Beach) in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, which is home to more than 1.6 million residents, but is considered to be the region's historic, urban, financial and cultural center.
Norfolk is also home to the world's largest naval base, Norfolk Naval Base, and the defense headquarters for NATO, the world's largest military alliance, and has a long history as a strategic military and transportation point. Norfolk Southern Railway and Maersk Line Limited both have corporate headquarters in Norfolk. The waterways of the Hampton Roads region play an important role in the local economy. As a strategic location at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, its protected deep-water channels serve as a major trade artery for the import and export of goods from across the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and internationally.
The region's foremost art museum, the Chrysler Museum of Art, is in Norfolk, as are Nauticus (a maritime-themed science center and museum) and the Hermitage Foundation Museum (which features an eclectic collection of Asian and Western art). Norfolk is also home to several major performing arts companies, including the Virginia Opera, the Virginia Stage Company and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
