The Local Scoop is the lifestyle magazine and small business champion that fosters connections through compelling stories about people, places and events that make the Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula and greater Williamsburg unique.  

The Northern Neck/Middle Peninsula edition was first published in spring 2011. In 2015 we launched a second edition for greater Williamsburg. There was — and continues to be — real synergy between our coastal regions—shopping, dining, attractions, second homes. It was a natural fit and beneficial to our advertisers. However, with COVID lockdowns and the adverse impact on small businesses, we decided to roll both editions into one while still offering timely stories that reflect our readers’ interests.

The most recent digital edition is featured prominently on this website. Visitors can peruse the issue on their desktop or their phone, clicking through to advertisers’ websites. Social media channels promote local events and small business highlights.

Looking for a new home? Don't miss the Real Estate section on this website. The best local Realtors and their premier listings are featured.
