Virginia Beach has an estimated population 452,000 people and is the largest city in the state of Virginia. It covers 497 square miles along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and is an “independent city” so it’s not located in any county. Area code 757 also contains the cities of Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News, and more. A Virginia Beach area code is an asset to any business not only because it’s the biggest city in the state, but also because it is located 107 miles from the capital city of Richmond, 209 miles from Washington DC, and 254 miles from Baltimore.
Virginia Beach was incorporated as a town in 1906 and as a city in 1952. However, their history started long before that when the area was first settled in 1604. It mostly existed with farming and plantations until the first railroad came into the city in the late 1800’s. Then, resorts and tourism began to grow along the beach. The Virginia Beach Boulevard connected the city to nearby Norfolk by road in 1922.
The city’s location on the Atlantic Coast made it a strategic place for military and defense, and multiple bases were built in the city spurring population growth as well. Now, Virginia Beach is the biggest city in the state and the 41st largest in the US.
Virginia Beach does not have any companies on the 2018 Fortune 500 or Fortune 1000 lists. The top five largest businesses in the city are the Naval Air Station Oceana-Dam Neck, Sentara Healthcare, Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek/Ft. Story, GEICO General Insurance Company, and General Growth Properties (Lynnhaven Mall).
Other notable companies in the area include Gold Key/PHR Hotels and Resorts, STIHL Incorporated, Amerigroup (Anthem), the Navy Exchange Service Command, Operation Blessing International, the Christian Broadcasting Network, and more. Some of the top industries in the Virginia Beach area code are military and defense, trade and agribusiness. Tourism also plays an important role in the economy, and the Virginia Beach Department for Economic Development reports that in 2016 the city hosted over 15 million tourists.
Virginia Beach boasts an unemployment rate of only 3.8%, which is lower than the US national average of 5.2%. In addition, the city is predicting over 35% future job growth in coming years. The average household income in the Virginia Beach area code is $67,000, which is significantly higher than the US national average of $53,000, and 28% of the population is making over $100,000 annually. Health care and social assistance is the most common occupation for residents in area code 757, followed by retail trade and public administration.
In the past Virginia Beach has been named #57 on the Forbes list of “Cost of Doing Business” and #86 on the list of “Best Places for Doing Business and Careers.” Some of the best and biggest annual events that take place in Virginia Beach are the North American Sand Soccer Tournament, the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival, and more.
