Virginia Oyster Trail
The noted “Oyster Capital of the East Coast,” Virginia boasts eight regions that each produce oysters with distinct flavors based on the water in which they're raised. The Virginia Oyster Trail, a self-guided program, invites visitors to experience each of those regions at their own pace. A regional map details the Chesapeake Bay's many attractions that pay homage to the Virginia Oyster — from the “agri-artisan” businesses such as wineries, breweries and distilleries that offer local oyster pairings, and locally-owned restaurants that creatively infuse oysters into their menu offerings; to historic sites, museums, festivals and other events that celebrate the area's history and provide educational materials; to craft and fine art studios whose artisans create collectibles unique to the Eastern Shore.
