2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the “Virginia Is For Lovers” brand and Virginia Tourism Corporation is celebrating with a “50 Years of Love” campaign focused on special experiences across the state through local activations like events, programs and special offerings – that will last 50 days.
Chincoteague will be celebrating this great milestone with events, activities and promotions that will take place from June 21 to August 10...so come celebrate with us on Virginia’s only resort island! Chincoteague is the perfect getaway that is close to home, yet miles away from ordinary.
In addition to all the great celebrations hosted by the chamber and our business community below, there is plenty to do during your visit. Explore the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on miles of hiking and biking trails, kayak its pristine waters to see amazing wildlife; including the world famous Chincoteague Ponies or take in the breathtaking views from atop the Assateague Lighthouse.
Relax with your toes in the sand or hit the water and surf the Atlantic Ocean waves at Assateague Island National Seashore. Feel the wind in your hair on a boat cruise or sailing adventure. Cast a rod and catch the ‘Big One’ on an inland or off-shore fishing charter. Discover our rich history by visiting our museums or taking an island history tour or ecotour. Partake in delectable seafood and local fare from one of our many charming restaurants or eateries.
Find that perfect treasure by shopping our eclectic shops and art galleries. Experience this and so much more on a little island seven miles long and a mile and a half wide. Are itineraries your style? We have them too!
