About

The Rivah Visitor’s Guide provides information about places to go and things to do throughout the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula of Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay region, from the York River to the Potomac River.

Coverage areas include the counties of Essex, Gloucester, Lancaster, Mathews, Middlesex, Northumberland, Richmond and Westmoreland as well as Historic Yorktown.

This free guide is published jointly by the Rappahannock Record in Kilmarnock, VA and the Southside Sentinel in Urbanna, VA monthly from from May to October. The Rivah can be found at hundreds of locations such as marinas, restaurants, gift shops, hotels, as well as outdoor blue distribution boxes.

Issues include features written by our award winning reporters, dining reviews, fishing reports, area history and more. Comprehensive directories and event and music calendars can also be found.

Beginning in 1993, The Rivah Visitor’s Guide has showcased this special region for 25 years.
