Scroll down for a wealth of information, maps, local favorites. While much of the beach towns of the eastern shore have changed quite a bit over the last 40 years, so much of what makes Chincoteague unique and special-- the wildlife refuge for bird and pony-watching, the quiet peacefulness, the 'fishermen's-town' feel of Chincoteague, remain the same.

This oyster-and-crab-rich island is also home to the famous Chincoteague ponies. While saltwater cowboys have been driving wild horses across the channel for auction since 1925, it was the children's book Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry that put the event, and this quiet little fishing town, on the map in 1947. Today, tourism has replaced fishing as the primary industry in Chincoteague—more than 30,000 visitors pack the town on the last Wednesday and Thursday of July for the pony swim. Some of the best fun here is out on the water.

As you approach Chincoteague Island along Route 175, explore NASA Wallops Flight facility with its full scale rockets, displays and hands-on activities. The world renowned Pony Round Up and Swim last Wednesday and Thursday of July brings a large influx of visitors to the Island. The Saltwater Cowboys guide the ponies on Monday July 28 along the beach from the North to the South corral where they will rest for a day. The ponies swim the Assateague channel at low tide to the Chincoteague Memorial Park, Wednesday July 30th. The yearlings and younger ones are auctioned by the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company, July 31st. The remaining ponies swim back to Assateague, August 1st. Enjoy: The Volunteer Fireman's Carnival, Blueberry, Seafood, Oyster, and Easter Decoy and Arts Festivals, The Annual Chili and Chowder cook-off. Visit the Herbert H. Bateman Center, Museum of Chincoteague Island, Beebe Ranch, home of 'Misty', and Assateague Lighthouse. Go on the Wildlife Refuge Tour. Ride the Chincoteague Island Trolley.

Besides the National Seashore & Wildlife Refuge, we have lots of Events and Activities: There are 3 pony round-ups each year -- spring and fall Round-ups are less crowded and fun to watch, but the only Round-up where the ponies swim is in July. Explore the channels and nature preserve of Assateague Island. Chincoteague Island boasts a quaint town with lots to do, great seafood, art galleries, gift shops, old-fashioned ice cream shops (try Island Creamery...) and vintage movie theater. Boating, Biking, Fishing, Crabbing, Surfing, Miniature Golf or…Just lay on the golden sand!

Enjoy pristine Assateague Beach minutes away. (Conde Nast Traveler’s 20 best beaches in America!) Because Assateague Beach is a National Park, it is beautiful, clean and a true beach! No buildings or development allowed. The ocean swimming, wave jumping and play are wonderful. Assateague Island offers beach, fun and waves. The surfing breaks on Assateague Island are mostly sand bars. The surf here gets really good when there is any type of weather disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean generating swell. On really good swells local surfers will sometimes venture, by boat, to some really good breaks on the nearby barrier islands.

The Chincoteague Cultural Alliance is a non-profit organization that promotes art, creativity and culture on Chincoteague Island and Delmarva’s Eastern Shore. We are an all-volunteer group of artists, musicians, shop/gallery owners, and enthusiasts working together to offer a broad range of fun events each year. Our program calendar includes concerts, theatre, gallery tours, art shows, art & music classes, farmers markets, festivals and more.

Outdoor Parks: Chincoteague Island offers several beautiful parks for the enjoyment of its residents and visitors. We highly recommend taking advantage of these well maintained spaces while you're on vacation.

About Tina Howard

I came to Chincoteague when I was 16 years old and knew I had found home. 40 years and 7 grandchildren later I know that there's no place like home and although I have no red ruby shoes, I have beautiful sun rises and sunsets, wild life and nature, friends and family, Life is good!!! My partners are retired and live here full time. Their families have all vacationed here since early 1960's, their parents owned Sea Harbor (vacation home also) and it has provided them all with many wonderful memories and quality family time together. They love this area and all the nature and charm it has to offer. This has been a vacation spot for their families for many years.

Tina Howard purchased this House in 2016

Right in Memorial Park!!! This is the best location on the island as far as I am concerned.

The park has tennis courts, basketball courts, playground equipment, fishing/crabbing pier, ball field, boat ramp, skate park, pavilion and restrooms.

                                                                I highly recommend this place.

                                                                Sea Adventure was a perfect place to stay in the island ; it's very clean and all are in order. What I love most is, it is close to the bay and perfect to have an early walk around. A police car comes the area to check, so, the visitors are safe.

                                                                Lovely accomodation !

                                                                Very nice place for an extended family, good sleeping arrangements, nice kitchen with plenty of utensils. The place was very clean. We enjoyed fishing and crabbing from the the pier. Its not a bad drive out to the beach, we always saw ponies and water fowl on the drive to the beach. Parking for 3 vehicles was good, we had 3 couples staying the week.

                                                                I don't have anything bad to say about our stay, we all enjoyed ourselves.

                                                                As you approach Chincoteague Island along Route 175, explore NASA Wallops Flight facility with its full scale rockets, displays and hands-on activities. The world renowned Pony Round Up and Swim July 28 to Aug 1 brings a large influx of visitors to the Island. The Saltwater Cowboys guide the ponies on Monday July 28 along the beach from the North to the South corral where they will rest for a day. The ponies swim the Assateague channel at low tide to the Chincoteague Memorial Park, Wednesday July 30th. The yearlings and younger ones are auctioned by the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company, July 31st. The remaining ponies swim back to Assateague, August 1st. Enjoy: The Volunteer Fireman's Carnival, Blueberry, Seafood, Oyster, and Easter Decoy and Arts Festivals, The Annual Chili and Chowder cook-off. Visit the Herbert H. Bateman Center, Museum of Chincoteague Island, Beebe Ranch, home of 'Misty', and Assateague Lighthouse. Go on the Wildlife Refuge Tour. Ride the Chincoteague Island Trolley. Besides the National Seashore & Wildlife Refuge, we have lots of Events and Activities: There are 3 pony round-ups each year -- spring and fall Round-ups are less crowded and fun to watch, but the only Round-up where the ponies swim is in July. Explore the channels and nature preserve of Assateague Island. Chincoteague Island boasts a quaint town with lots to do, great seafood, art galleries, gift shops, old-fashioned ice cream shops (try Island Creamery...the Mississippi Mud!) and vintage movie theatre. Boating, Biking, Fishing, Crabbing, Surfing, Miniature Golf or…Just lay on the golden sand! Enjoy pristine Assateague Beach minutes away. (Conde Nast Traveler’s 20 best beaches in America!) Because Assateague Beach is a National Park, it is beautiful, clean and a true beach! No buildings or development allowed. The ocean swimming, wave jumping and play are wonderful. Assateague Island offers beach, fun and waves. The surfing breaks on Assateague Island are mostly sand bars. The surf here gets really good when there is any type of weather disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean generating swell. On really good swells local surfers will sometimes venture, by boat, to some really good breaks on the nearby barrier islands. The Chincoteague Cultural Alliance is a non-profit organization that promotes art, creativity and culture on Chincoteague Island and Delmarva’s Eastern Shore. We are an all-volunteer group of artists, musicians, shop/gallery owners, and enthusiasts working together to offer a broad range of fun events each year. Our program calendar includes concerts, theatre, gallery tours, art shows, art & music classes, farmers markets, festivals and more. Outdoor Parks: Chincoteague Island offers several beautiful parks for the enjoyment of its residents and visitors. We highly recommend taking advantage of these well maintained spaces while you’re on vacation. Robert Reed Downtown Park - The Town of Chincoteague, with the support of local businesses and a network of volunteers, is involved in an ambitious revitalization project in the downtown area. The Town has accumulated nearly $1.7 million in various grants and local matches toward the project. One major phase of the revitalization involves the development of a new waterfront park. This park, located on the waterfront in the heart of downtown, offers recreational opportunities, a site for festivals and events, and a beautiful view of sunsets. Annual events such as the “Weekend of the Islands” and the “Chili Chowder Cook-off” have already begun drawing as many as 1,500 visitors. There are currently 10 boat slips available for rent to transient boats that are in excess of 26’to 50’ in length. The park is ADA accessible, inclusive of boat slips. Veteran's Memorial Park - The Town of Chincoteague has a lovely waterfront park, Chincoteague Veteran's Memorial Park, for the recreation of residents and visitors. Memorial Park is located on Eastside Road. The park has tennis courts, basketball courts, playground equipment, fishing/crabbing pier, ball field, boat ramp, Skate Park, pavilion and restrooms. The pavilion may be reserved for groups through a permit issued by the Town for approval. It is recommended that you contact the Town Office to check availability. There is no fee for reserving the pavilion. The Commonwealth of Virginia enforces a recreational fishing license for the water surrounding Chincoteague. The Town of Chincoteague purchases a fishing license for the Veteran's Memorial Park fishing pier, so an individual license is not required. Donald J. Leonard Park - The Donald J. Leonard Park is located across from the Chincoteague Combined School on North Main Street and protects an open view of Chincoteague Bay with approximately 600 feet of water frontage. Over 2.7 acres of waterfront land has been left in its natural state for the enjoyment of the citizens and visitors alike. Park facilities allow for off street parking.
