Navigating the Northern Neck
September 5, 2019
Today you step back in time and experience the road less traveled as you explore Virginia’s Northern Neck, one of the most historic regions in Virginia. Begin in the southern end of Lancaster County and tour Historic Christ Church, considered one of America’s most beautiful and authentic colonial churches. This church is both a Virginia and a National Historic Landmark completed circa 1735 by Robert King Carter. Enjoy a Crab Cake Lunch at the prestigious Tides Inn. On a private peninsula, surrounded by the splendor of the Chesapeake Bay, the Tides Inn is a timeless Virginia resort with sweeping waterfront views. Next, travel north into Westmoreland County for a tour of Stratford Plantation, birthplace of Robert E. Lee and one of the great houses of American history. Its magnificent setting on a high bluff above the Potomac River and its bold architectural style set it apart from any other colonial house. End the day with a special ice cream treat at Westmoreland Berry Farm!
