Virginia Kicks Off Official Oyster Trail

The Virginia Oyster Trail is now official! Gov. Terry McAuliffe and first lady Dorothy McAuliffe joined other dignitaries in Irvington on Monday for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the trail. Activities along the trail will include waterman tours, oyster company tours, restaurants that feature the Virginia oyster, art venues and historic sites and museums. According to state officials, Virginia is the largest producer of fresh, farm-raised oysters on the East Coast, so it’s only natural that the Oyster trail begins right here!
