Welcome,
 from the
Unique Shoppes
of Poquoson

Our friendly city is conveniently located. Take Exit 256B from Interstate 64, travel 6 miles east on Victory Blvd. (Rt. 171).
Poquoson is easily accessible from Williamsburg, Yorktown, NASA, Hampton, Norfolk and Virginia Beach.

You'll also find us a great stopover to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.


We invite you to come to Poquoson, "Waterman's Country". Recorded in the English land patent issued to Captain Christopher Calthorpe April 26, 1631. Poquoson is the oldest city in Virginia to have used the same name continuously. The annual Seafood Festival, presented the 3rd weekend in October, has become one of the largest in Tidewater. This 3 day event portrays the culture as it has endured for generations through scenic displays and working demonstrations.
