Essex County is on the southern shore of the Rappahannock River in the heart of the Middle Peninsula. It’s an area that depends upon the waters of the Rappahannock and the Chesapeake Bay. Recreation, fishing and tourism account for much of its income. Although its population is relatively small, Essex County and its seat, Tappahannock, have much to offer. For the outdoor lover there’s fishing, boating, cruising, hunting, and golf. For the antique buff, there are numerous antique shops located both in Tappahannock and out in the county. And, just as in any other Tidewater community, the people are friendly and outgoing, and visitors are always welcome. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
