The Commonwealth of Virginia – already well known as a top wine travel destination, is now rapidly becoming the oyster capital of the East Coast. It’s the largest producer of fresh, farm-raised oysters in the US. The diverse flavor of Virginia oysters – from the saltiest in the waters of Chincoteague on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, to the sweet taste of Rappahannock River oysters, and the rebirth of Lynnhaven oysters in Virginia Beach – all give visitors a lot to love about oyster travel in Virginia.
