Why Irvington Is the Best Destination for Romantic Getaways in Virginia

The Exquisite Cuisine

Anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting Irvington can tell you that the cuisine is reason enough to plan your trip. Our locally harvested oysters along the Rappahannock River will tantalize your taste buds and keep you coming back for more. In fact, our peaceful community is in the heart of where the oyster boom in Virginia first began!

Indulge with your significant other at our local restaurants, and make sure you save plenty of time to experience pairing perfection at The Dog and Oyster Vineyard. You’ll both fall in love with our medal-winning wines and seasonal oyster specials(It’s one of only three places in the world where grapes grow next to waters where oysters are grown, resulting in the terroir of the grape to be the same as the merroir of the oyster!)

The Charming Shops

For a fun afternoon with your better half, consider exploring all the wonderful shops in Irvington, VA! You’ll have no trouble finding unique gifts or souvenirs at places like The DandelionVillage Needlepoint, and Objects, Art and More. The shopkeepers are always friendly and add a little extra charm to your Northern Neck shopping experience.
