Virginia Beach, Virginia

There have been so many great zombie films over the years like The Girl With All the Gifts, Overlord, Planet Terror, and many more leading many people to speculate how they would do if they were in such a situation. Now they can add taking their potential zombie fighting talents to Virginia Beach, where their undead corps combat efforts will not only be highly welcomed, given where they rank so high, but also very much needed in order to maintain the existence of the human race.

Virginia Beach has been a tourist destination for many, but it should now be the place to go if people are looking for protection from undead assailants. Virginia Beach outscored the likes of Baltimore, Kansas City, Atlanta, and the nation’s capital when it came to its ability to defend against any threats of the zombie variety.

The defense equipment and weapons availability, as well as train the individuals to wield them and teach others how to protect themselves safely, is key to winning a World War Z style epidemic. There is a significant naval presence in Virginia Beach as well as a solid number of other military personnel from branches such as the Coast Guard, Air Force, and Army.

If the protection factor wasn’t enough to sell people on Virginia Beach’s next-level zombie readiness, then their real estate industry should remove all doubt. There are realtors offering information on which homes to buy that will protect owners and their loved ones in case the dead rise hungry for flesh.
