To the locals it is known as Bull Island. To everyone else it is the nice little city on the Virginia Penninsula of Hampton Roads, Poquoson. This city of nearly 12,000 people is steeped in history and is also a noted working watermans port on the Chesapeake Bay. Poquoson is one of the oldest cities in the state of Virginia as it was in one of the eight original shires of the state. It is one of only a few towns that kept their Algonquin Indian name after the English had come to the States to colonize. Poquoson is an integral part of York County but in 1975, Poquoson became an independent city but still to the this day depends on York County officials when it comes to school, courts, police, and other public services. Another great thing about Poquoson is its close promiximity to Hampton Roads, Washington, D.C., and Richmond. You can enjoy the beach and all of the historical attractions at Virginia Beach and Portsmouth, enjoy a baseball game at Harbor Park in Norfolk, or just cruise up and down the scenic backroads of the entire Tidewater Peninsula. If you are looking to get away from it all, check into Poquoson, Virginia.
