City Guide
Newport News
Weather:

All four seasons happen in Newport News. Though the summers can be hot, Newport News is pretty mild in terms of heat and is nowhere near as uncomfortable as some of the other cities of the south. This could be due to its location near the Harbor, but no matter the reason you will be grateful. Those moving here for a bit of winter will delight in the fact that it does indeed get cold enough to snow here but you will not have to spend the entire winter shoveling your driveway or street. For all of these weather reasons, it is important to make sure your rental comes with A/C and heat and that your car is well prepared for icy bridges and slippery roads.

So, you see, a city with history and plenty of museums to show for it, doesn’t have to be boring or sleepy. Instead, it can have a bustling City Center, plenty of local shopping and access to boating, fishing and sailing. To live here is to love here. After all, isn’t Virginia for lovers?

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Newport News's results from the first annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 18,000 renters, provides new insights into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

"Newport News renters gave high marks for overall satisfaction, ranking the Navy town in the top quartile of cities nationwide," says Andrew Tam, Vice President of Data Science at Apartment List. "The US renter population is at its highest level in 20 years, and while Newport News received high grades for a number of important amenities, a very low percentage of renters plan to be future homeowners."

Key findings in Newport News include the following:

  • Newport News renters give their city an A overall, ranking the city 13th overall out of 100 cities in our study.
  • The economy in Newport News received a B+, with 32% of renters saying they believe the local economy is on the right track.
  • The lowest grade for Newport News was a D for future homeownership, with only 45% of respondents saying they plan to purchase a home or apartment. This puts the city in the bottom decile, tied for 10th worst in our study.
  • One particularly bright spot for Newport News was for safety, where it received an A+ and ranked 8th best overall.
  • One area that could increase overall satisfaction for Newport News even further is by improving quality of local schools, where it received a B.
  • The survey covered 5 Virgina cities, all of which received at least a B+ for city satisfaction: Arlington topped the list with an A+, followed by Newport News (A), Virginia Beach (A-), Richmond (B+) and Alexandria (B+).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for city satisfaction were Plano, TX; Boston, MA; Arlington, VA; Austin, TX; and Torrance, CA. The lowest rated cities were Newark, NJ; New Haven, CT; Bridgeport, CT; Hartford, CT; and Columbia, SC.
