Northern Neck Artisan Trail



Where water surrounds and creativity abounds

 

Bounded by the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, and originally inhabited by eight Virginia Indian tribes who established villages along its shores, Virginia’s Northern Neck is a rural, history-laden peninsula settled by the English in the mid-17th century, after the first tourist, Captain John Smith, explored the area as early as 1608. The Chesapeake Bay and their tributaries provide a haven for boaters and water enthusiasts, and have supported a fishing industry for generations. At the present, Colonial architecture, walkable small towns and villages, bed & breakfasts and inns, parks and campgrounds, wineries, historic sites and museums, marinas and retail shops are among the valuable assets that attract visitors to the area.

This trail includes King George, Lancaster, Westmoreland, Northumberland, and Richmond Counties.
