Do Mathews and celebrate life on the Chesapeake Bay!
Wake up in one of the many scenic cottages or B&B’s along the Bay to the sights and sounds of nature, like The Inn at Tabbs Creek. Be sure you bring those binoculars so you can catch an up close and personal view of the wildlife because we are the special birding capital!
For birding, be sure to visit Horn Harbor - a site on the Virginia Birding & Wildlife Trail that is often home to loons, grebes and northern gannet in the cooler months. And as you drive back into the village you can take a short side trip to Williams Wharf to the scenic East River and browse the B Williams General Store which has been converted into a steamboat museum. By now it's time for some serious seafood eatin'! Check out The White Dog Bistro, winner of the 2016 Virginia is for Lovers Culinary Challenge in the Fresh Catch category. If you're up for it, go boogey at Donk’s Theater “L’il Ole Opry”, featured in Virginia Living and starring Richard Smith. Or if you are a bluegrass fan, try Southwind for the free music “Mixed Grill”.
