Isle of Wight Life


With its natural beauty and high standard of living, Isle of Wight is truly Virginia’s promised land. This 319 square miles of rolling terrain and planned development is fertile ground for the region’s most prosperous businesses. Rich in natural resources and populated by residents smart enough to use them wisely, Isle of Wight has successfully blended industry with good, clean living. We invest heavily in endeavors that build quality of life – schools, health care, parks and neighborhoods. We keep our rivers clean and our land unspoiled. And because we exercise such care, businesses and their employees find us a desirable destination.

Isle of Wight County features two incorporated towns, Smithfield and Windsor.

Our County is strategically located just minutes from one of the Country’s busiest transportation hubs, which includes the Port of Virginia, interstates, airports and railways. It’s a perfect environment for success. One that’s diverse, progressive, and very committed to the future.

Isle of Wight welcomes all who share our vision. You’ll find great support for industry here, along with a keen awareness of what it takes to get things done – and the willingness to do them. Pair that with a skilled workforce and a stable economy in one of the three fastest-growing areas in Hampton Roads, and you’ll see the possibilities aren’t merely good. They’re virtually unlimited.
