Discover Cape Charles with a Day-Trip

September 19, 2020 by Corey A. Edwards

boardwalk at Cape Charles beachVirginia’s Eastern Shore is loaded with fun things to do and see, so many of which are right here on Chincoteague. For those who would like to do a little exploring but enjoy the small town vibe, we can hardly think of a better idea than a Cape Charles day-trip.

Cape Charles is a small, quaint town on Chesapeake Bay, near the southern tip of the Delmarva Peninsula. Voted one of “America’s Happiest Seaside Towns” in 2018, this quiet and cozy community has plenty to offer.

For one thing, it is home to one of the largest collections of late-Victorian and turn-of-the-century buildings on the East Coast. It’s also home to one of the nicest beaches outside of Chincoteague.

Things To Do On Chincoteague Island – Summer 2020

July 18, 2020 by Corey A. Edwards

things to do on ChincoteagueChincoteague Island is open and so is Miss Molly’s Bed and Breakfast – but in these uncertain times, you may be wondering what else is. We’ve broached this subject before but, with so many events cancelled, we offer a Summer 2020 edition of things to do on Chincoteague.

Virginia moved to Phase Three on July 1st, allowing for a cautious easing of restrictions across the state. Of course, Phase 3 is still not exactly back to normal and many of Chincoteague’s bigger summer events remain cancelled.

2020 will see no Blueberry Festival, Pony Swim, public Pony Penning, or Fireman’s Carnival. The 2020 Summer Pony Auction will be held online.

So what on earth is there left to do on Chincoteague? Plenty! In fact, reduced summer crowds are likely improve your Chincoteague experience – even though we all wish the reason for the reduction was different, of course.
