Chincoteague Island

4.2
Famous for a wild breed of horses--Chincoteague Ponies--Chincoteague Island embraces the mystery of some of North America’s oldest inhabitants. The horses run free on nearby Assateague Island for most of the year, but in summer the wild beasts swim the shallow waters between the two islands and climb ashore on Chincoteague, where they run down the main street and into a pen until the following season. The island lifestyle reigns here, as visitors and residents alike come for the serene beaches and the harbor, which is often filled with small fishing vessels. The town thrives on bed and breakfasts and family-owned hotels. When using our United States itinerary maker website, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
