Patrick County VA Area Information and Links

Patrick County


Patrick County, a quaint community at the southern edge of Virginia, is home to 18,000 people. Built around a culture of idyllic small town living, it may very well feel like you’ve stepped back into Mayberry. Local shops, outdoor adventures, and yearly festivals make Patrick County a great place to call home. Jobs are mainly centered around manufacturing and retail. Furthermore, the county saw a 4.8% increase in the median salary in just one year. 


While this may feel like Mayberry, the amount of shops and experiences make this county feel very large indeed. With dozens of local artisan shops, craftsmen, coffee roasters, and more, it would be hard to run out of things to do and see here. Downtown Stuart hosts the annual Apple Dumpling Festival where you can try homemade goods, listen to local musicians, and shop from fine artisan vendors. The county is also a fabulous place to experience the great outdoors. Whether you are looking for hiking, kayaking, or just taking in the sweeping mountain scenery, there is something here for you.
