Middlesex County

Welcome to Middlesex County, established in 1673, located off the Chesapeake Bay with the beautiful Rappahannock River, pristine Piankatank River (the cleanest river in the state), plus absolutely stunning, wide, deep creeks.  Middlesex is a little over 200 square miles with 80 square miles of waterfront and quaint waterfront towns including Urbanna, Deltaville, and Saluda.  Only an 1+ hours to Richmond/Newport News/Williamsburg and 2+ hours to Northern Virginia/Charlottesville.

Urbanna is the largest town in Middlesex and home to the Oyster Festival. For over 50 years, the town has hosted the Oyster Festival on the first weekend in November. Local and visitors alike come to the small town to sample the seafood, enjoy music, and see the crafts offered by local vendors. Urbanna is a “golf cart friendly” community with shops, restaurants, community pool and much more.

Deltaville, while not the largest town, is very well known for its deep anchorage, multiple marinas and amazing waterways and views.  It was originally known as “Sandy Bottom” but renamed in 1909. In 2012 Deltaville was named ‘the Boating Capital of the Chesapeake Bay.’ Approximately 500-800 people live here full time and thousands in the summer.  Full of shops, restaurants, and waterfront fun, Deltaville is truly a charming town.

With many deep ports off the rivers and bays, Middlesex is well known for its local crabs, oysters, fish, and more.  Many locals are watermen who know the waterways better than anyone, and they have some great stories to tell.  With so much beauty and serenity, Middlesex County is sure to warm your heart.
