Bordered by the Piankatank River to the South, Chesapeake Bay to the East and Rappahannock River to the North we have our Rivah Lifestyle mixed with beautiful history, great seafood, friendly people and great breezes! Middlesex is known for the Deltaville Deadrise boats, Deltaville Maritime Museum, Rappahannock River Oysters with their oyster tasting house, Merrior, gorgeous walkable harbor Town of Urbanna with high end shops, the home and resting site of the one of the most decorated Marines, General Chesty Puller and the unforgettable Official state oyster festival, the Urbanna Oyster Festival.
We are very proud of our waterfront heritage and represent it in three different ways at the Middlesex Museum, Deltaville Maritime Museum and the James Scottish Mill Factory Store (Old Tobacco Warehouse). We carry on our history by celebrating our expansive waterfront through boating, kayaking, paddleboarding and just relaxing by the Chesapeake Bay. As the sun goes down you can continue your enjoyment at one of our waterfront restaurants such as Merroir, or by heading out to the Virginia Motor Speedway for some exciting dirt track racing or to our iconic and historic ballpark, Deltaville Stadium! Come check us out at the Deltaville Seafood Festival in May, outdoor concerts at the Maritime Museum or Town of Urbanna, waterfront Fireworks on the 4th of July, or the Virginia State Oyster Festival. We’ll show you a great time where you can unplug, unwind and enjoy life! Think Colonial Williamsburg, meets Jamaica and an old Salty Waterman! We are living the island lifestyle right here in Virginia on the gorgeous Chesapeake Bay!
