There is so much to see and do in the Northern Neck and surrounding community. RWC is minutes away from a world-class resort, fine dining, golf courses, boutiques, wineries and so much more.
Hundreds of miles of shoreline along rivers, creeks and the magnificent Chesapeake Bay make the Northern Neck ideal for boaters, kayakers and sightseers who want to catch a glimpse of wildlife (or an occasional dolphin). The region has long been home to farmers and watermen, and their traditions are evident almost everywhere you go. Farmers’ markets feature local seafood and produce, along with crafts that make ideal gifts for friends and family. You’ll find golf courses, walking trails, shooting ranges, museums, county fairs and celebrations commemorating the history and traditions of the Northern Neck and America.
You’ll find your neighbors in the Northern Neck share a spirit of volunteerism and optimism that is heartwarming and contagious. Many are active in their churches and in civic organizations. Libraries, theaters and fine arts groups provide a surprisingly diverse and sophisticated cultural life. Locally owned businesses offer an array of goods and services making it easy to shop close to home.
RWC is an integral part of this community, serving as a meeting place for several civic and nonprofit organizations and holding numerous events such as the annual Viewpoints series, which brings national and local speakers to the campus each spring.
When you move to Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury, you will be joining a vibrant community that will enrich your life in ways you can only begin to imagine.
