Welcome to Chincoteague Island, Virginia’s Island Resort
The adventure begins as you travel over the causeway to our secluded island. You can feel the stress and tension leave as you absorb natures wonder, mile after mile of pristine marsh and wetlands leading to a land of friendly natives, old fashioned southern hospitality and framed by ocean and bay.
“Are we going to see the ponies?” “Can we ride them?” the children ask. “Do they rent kayaks?” your teenager asks, “Can we go bike riding?” “Can we ride Go-carts?” The questions keep streaming as the excitement builds. The answer is yes to all, there will be more to do on Chincoteague Island than can be squeezed into a single vacation. On the horizon you can see Virginia’s famous coastal barrier island with over 14,000 acres of unspoiled beachfront, dunes, marsh and maritime forest; you know this is going to be a family fun vacation long remembered.
You begin to catch island fever as you cross the bridge and descend into the charming village, the channel lined with fishing boats, a waterfront park on the left and main street filled with quaint shops, an Art Deco Theater and many inviting restaurants.
Everyone will have a great time, the week is going to be filled with surf-fishing, sunbathing, miniature golf, exploring the maritime forests and hiking trails, bike riding, shopping and dining. Even if it rains there are museums to explore, a bowling alley and the Roxy Theater. But you have seven fun-filled days to enjoy it all.
“We’re here!” the children shout for joy, “who wants ice-cream?” you reply. Your first stop will be the Island Creamery where there are over 36 flavors of home made ice cream or Muller’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor which serve old fashioned fountain treats in a Victorian setting.
After enjoying refreshments it’s time to check in to one of the many wonderful hotels or Bed and Breakfast Inns or vacation rentals you have chosen. It would be hard to find a vacation destination with a wider array of quality accommodations. Whether you select a bed and breakfast inn, a presidential suite, a cottage, campground or rental home the exact right accommodations can be found on Chincoteague.
