No R-Egrets. What an awsome island! WaterMan's family vacation went on from Assateague State Park, MD to Chincoteague, VA.
Chincoteague is a town of 4,317 people on Chincoteague Island in Accomack County, Virginia, United States. The town is perhaps best known for the Chincoteague Ponies, although these are not actually on the island of Chincoteague but on nearby Assateague Island. These ponies and the annual Pony Penning Day are the subject of Marguerite Henry's 1947 children's book Misty of Chincoteague. This was made into the 1961 family film Misty, which was filmed on location.
A relatively quiet island, there is some good stuff to do. Here is a little list of best bets ...
- Sun Dial Books
- Egret Moon Artworks
- Anchor Inn
- Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge
- Famous Pizza Of Chincoteague Island
