Please check out The Northern Neck of Virginia….an extremely historic and picturesque peninsula in Northeast Virginia, surrounded by the Rappahannock River to the south, the Chesapeake Bay to the east, and the Potomac River to the north. Beautiful landscapes, historic sites, local wineries, great farm to table restaurants specializing in local seafood, farmers’ markets, antique stores, boutique shops, many champion golf courses, and romantic B&Bs!!!
