Here’s my community guide to the Linkhorn neighborhoods of Virginia Beach.
There is a constellation of waterfront communities along the shores of Linkhorn Bay in Virginia Beach. This Bay is in the northern half of the city and separates the Great Neck area from Birdneck Point. The “Linkhorn” name refers to the neighborhoods of Linkhorn Bay, Linkhorn Point, Linkhorn Estates, Linkhorn Oaks, Linkhorn Shores & Linkhorn Park.
Most of the homes in the Linkhorn communities were built after 1975. The lots are large and pleasantly wooded. The homes are gracious, spacious, and majestic. Many of them are waterfront or have water access nearby. This part of the city is dotted with parks, boat docks, and fishing poles.
