There are so many reasons to love Mecklenburg County.



Mecklenburg County has a rich and fascinating history, incredible natural beauty and charming towns to explore. Its location in southern Virginia makes it easy to reach from Richmond, Norfolk and Raleigh, which means less time on the road and more time having fun.

• Two rivers and three lakes, including the largest lake in Virginia, means more paddling, boating, swimming and fishing
• Nearly 9,000 acres of forest in 17 Wildlife Management Areas means more hiking, biking, picnicking and wildlife viewing
• Charming small towns to explore means more unique shops, locally-owned restaurants and even a craft brewery
• Festivals and live music almost every weekend means plenty of time to celebrate with friends and family
