Mathews County, the second-smallest county in Virginia, is bordered by Gloucester County and the shoreline of Mobjack Bay, Chesapeake Bay, North River and Piankatank River.

The county is one of many great daytrip destinations from the Richmond area, with a charming downtown, stunning waterfronts and historic lighthouses.
