Fun Things to Do

Waterslide 2

There are no rules for FUN here in Middlesex County. If your into relaxing, choose a sunset boat charter, have a meal and a cocktail overlooking the water or kayak the river waterways.  If adventure is more speed, take an aerobatic ride in an open cockpit war plane or kick-up some dirt at the Virginia Motor Speedway races.

For the fashionesta in you, shop our boutique stores for men and women's clothing, home decor, art and coastal treasures.  There are no chains stores here, you can meet the business owner and enjoy the lavish customer service. Stroll the streets of small town Urbanna or stock-up while your anchored in Deltaville.

Crabs, Oysters & Seafood

Get your seafood right from the source!  Middlesex seafood markets sell fresh crabs, oysters, clams, scallops and fish harvested by our own watermen from the Chesapeake Bay's local waters.  Don't miss the market's scrumptious dips and other ready-to-eat foods.
