Welcome to New Kent, Virginia strategically located between two of the nation's most dynamic metropolitan areas; Richmond and Hampton Roads. New Kent County offers an open and relaxed atmosphere yet with the services and pleasures of an urban community. Richmond is 15 miles west, Williamsburg is 15 miles east, and Washington, D.C., is 100 miles north. Of particular importance is New Kent's access to two labor markets with broad based skills, a variety of educational institutions, and the unusual resource of a large retired (but young) military population.
