Waterfowl Hunting includes hunting for ducks, geese, turkey and deer there are professionals here and they conduct expeditions. These trained people have been hunting since 1965.
Hooks and Feathers are also professionals and they help guide in sea fishing charters, bay fishing, and inland fishing trips. Some of the historic places that are definitely worth a visit are Oyster and Maritime Museum and Refuge Waterfowl Museum.
Some other cities worth a visit around Chincoteague Island are Salisbury, Ocean City, Warsaw and Virginia Beach. This island is very popular for fishing and ... More quite a lot of sea edibles are found here.
People here celebrate a formal festival to cherish their specialty. This event is called the annual Sea Food Festival and is usually celebrated in May. This year Chincoteague celebrated its 39th Annual Sea Food Festival.

Chincoteague Island is situated in Accomack County in Virginia, USA. Located on the Chincoteague Bay, the island is spread over an area of 24.94 sq km and has a population of around 7,000.
The island enjoys a mild climate due to the moderating effects of the surrounding water. Summer temperatures range from 28°C to 19°C, while winter temperatures range from 7°C to –2°C.
Known for its oyster beds and clam shoals, the island is the gateway to the Assateague Island National Seashore and the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. These attractions not only offer ... More natural beauty but are also great recreational spots. Visitors can ride on the famous Chincoteague ponies or simply enjoy the Chincoteague Wild Pony Swim.
With serene beaches, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, animals in their natural habitat and hospitable inhabitants, Chincoteague Island is truly a paradise on earth.

Hard to live here full time without travelling a long way for quality groceries, pet supplies, auto parts or repair. Can't obtain a rental car. Having to resort to on-line shopping for clothes, decent cat food, cat toys, litter, etc. There is a pet place right on Main street that has nothing, if open. With the upscale tourism attracted, I was surprised to see only the lowest brand of grocery store. I love the beauty and the people and the fun.

Love the homey small town feel to Chincoteague! The shop owners and eating places are all family friendly and most are not too expensive. The beach at Assateague is easily accessible and beautiful.
