Colonial Beach, located at the northern tip of Virginia's Northern Neck, is one of the few remaining small seaport towns on the Potomac River. The town enjoys a unique location nestled between the Potomac River on the east and the waters of Monroe Bay on the West. Its sandy beaches and marinas on Monroe Bay have attracted water sporting enthusiasts for over a century. Fishing, sailing, boating, swimming and crabbing are just a few of the water activities enjoyed here. A great place to visit. Colonial Beach is also a very historical area, with Washington's Birthplace and Stratford Hall boyhood home of Lee, also Westmoreland County is the birthplace of James Monroe.
The small river town was in it's heyday during the 40's & 50's and there's a renaissance happening. If you haven't been here lately, you owe it to yourself to visit.
