So, what is The Salty Southern Route?!
Have you ever woken up in the morning and said “Hey, I have the day off and I want to do stuff,” not just the same old laundry, dishes, yardwork or another Netflix binge session! You want to see something new! You want to discover a shop or a restaurant you didn’t know about. You and your friends want to visit a park, enjoy an outdoor concert, buy fresh produce from a local farmers market, discover more about local history and of course wrap up the day by whetting your palate with a local brew or glass of wine! But then you think, “But what is there to do around here or even nearby?” Well, if you live in or near the southeastern region of Virginia, or have a couple of days to come visit, The Salty Southern Route is here to help!
As a newly created thematic driving tour, The Salty Southern Route (SSR for short) is here to inform you about all the awesome things there are to do in Isle of Wight, Suffolk, Surry, Southampton and Sussex County Virginia, while highlighting the region’s long and rich history with pork and peanuts (that’s why we’re “Salty”!) There is a ton to do and as an all online platform comprised of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and saltysouthernroute.com, we aim to make planning your day trip or weekend adventure a breeze! Find a suggested driving tour by hopping on our website, get weekly updates on upcoming events and get to know a little bit more about local businesses and landmarks by following us on social media. Whether you’re living local, crushing Fridays or visiting someplace new, these counties in Southeastern Virginia have everything you’re looking for, and The Salty Southern Route is where to find it!
