Chesapeake Bay, VA Guide

About Chesapeake Bay

This sleepy but charming area can be found on the lower ends of the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsulas of Virginia. The area is also bordered by three rivers (Potomac, Rappahannock, York) and attracts boaters, fishermen and other water-loving weekenders from the Richmond and Washington, DC areas. The Northern Neck’s “tri-city” area of Kilmarnock-Irvington-White Stone is home to many antique shops, inns, boutique stores, golf courses, and fine dining. Across the river, Urbanna is known for its annual oyster festival, while Deltaville has been called the sailing capital of the middle bay. Escape the chaos of the big city and come experience the good life the Bay area has to offer!
