I have 2 tables:

tblTeams (cols are ID, Team, RegionName (this is an int), URL)
and
tblRegions (cols are ID, RegionName)

I want to write some code that first puts every entry of tblRegions into a list
For each item in that list, I want to find each Team and URL from tblTeams where tblRegions.ID = tblTeams.RegionName and add the values to a string.

I have a model setup with the 2 tables and need to do this in VB.NET/Entity. I've gotten so far as to get the first part in a list and cycle through it, but I think I may be overcomplicated things. To help understand, I'm trying to make a dropdown navigation menu where the tblRegions.RegionName are the first level, and the tblTeams data are the submenu where the aforementioned where clause is met.

Honestly if I could just have a string that looked something like...

Region1 TeamR1a R1aURL TeamR1b R1bURL TeamR1c R1cURL Region2 TeamR2a R2aURL TeamR2b R2bURL Region3 TeamR3a R3aURL

That would actually work for me.
