Poquoson is conveniently accessible to I-64 and the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport, both typically within 15 minutes travel time. Adding to this connectivity is the City’s Wythe Creek Road Widening Project will ultimately include a new bridge connection with Hampton and increased accessibility for multi-modal transportation.
Poquoson’s business corridor serves a three-mile market area of nearly 40,000 people with a variety of shopping and dining opportunities, all framed in a relaxed, unhurried setting, making it a perfect day trip for visitors. In 2019, the City was pleased to welcome a number of new businesses including a destination Chinese restaurant, a popular ice cream shop and a fashion boutique.
