Additional Location Information

Mathews County, the “Pearl of the Chesapeake!” Mathews is Virginia’s second-smallest county, land-wise, with over 200 miles of Chesapeake Bay shoreline. Rich in centuries of maritime tradition, the county’s quiet country roads lead past stately historic homes to the river’s edge and a life of boating, kayaking, fishing, sailing, and just plain un-commercialized relaxation. You’ll find a wonderful assortment of specialty shops and restaurants throughout the county, with the majority lining our quaint Main Street in Mathews Court House. Art is abundant and spending the night is simply a great experience. Our annual festivals, such as Mathews Market Days, the Gwynn’s Island Festival, and the Tour de Chesapeake, provide a showcase for community pride and creativity. Our Visitor & Information Center is located in the Victorian-era Sibley’s General Store, located at 239 Main Street. Visit us for a weekend, and you’ll be tempted to stay for a lifetime.
