Living in Middle Peninsula

With hundreds of miles of shoreline, Virginia’s Middle Peninsula provides residents endless opportunities to experience the area’s rich quality of life with a cost of living below the national average.

A popular tourist and vacation destination, all along the river are beautiful, unspoiled beaches. Boating, sailing, and other water-related activities are a way of life.

The Town of Urbanna celebrates its important heritage with the annual Oyster Festival, attracting 50,000-75,000 visitors to the Middle Peninsula for more than 60 years. Close proximity to Richmond, Williamsburg, and the Newport News-Hampton metropolitan areas also enables residents to enjoy the numerous sporting events, concerts, theater productions, lectures, and art exhibitions those regions offer.
