What's In A Name? Hampton Roads, The Seven Cities, Tidewater....

If you live here, you've surely heard these monikers: Hampton Roads, The Seven Cities, Tidewater.... 

... and you likely get it by now: They are referencing "Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Newport News" and at times either Hampton and/or the northern-most areas of North Carolina.'''

If you're moving here, this collection of cities, all referred to as one area, can be daunting!

Here's a decent graphic so you can at least see where they are situated with eachother:
