Overall Guide : 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,... more 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 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.

Overall Guide : 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.... more 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.
Not to be missed Lighthouse , Refuge , Seafood Festival

Overall Guide : 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.
