Princess Anne is a community in the independent city of Virginia Beach, Virginia. It is located near the West Neck River, at the intersection of North Landing Rd. and Princess Anne Rd. Dating back to 1691, the community was named after Anne, Queen of Great Britain, who was once Princess Anne of Denmark and Norway. It was the county seat for Princess Anne County until the county and Virginia Beach consolidated in 1963. The area remained a rural community into the late 1970s and 1980s when middle and upper-middle-class neighborhoods started developing. As of the 21st century, more large and upscale family homes have been constructed in the community. Princess Anne has increased in its suburban business and residential neighborhoods. Some of these neighborhoods are:
Families with children in the community have access to the best schools in the Virginia Beach City Public Schools District. The area is also within proximity to the Virginia Beach oceanfront Pungo and the affluent coastal community of Sandbridge.
