Are you looking for a laid back, small town destination with beaches, wild ponies and one of the 10 best ice cream shops in America? Then head to Chincoteague Island, Virginia, the town where in 1947 Marguerite Henry wrote the popular book Misty of Chincoteague. This small town on Virginia’s Eastern Shore offers plenty to keep families entertained, with easy access to the Virginia portion of Assateague Island. We have only visited during the spring, but one of the items on my USA bucket list is to make it back for the annual Pony Swim (currently in its 92nd year!). It’s a little over 3 hours from the DC area, so perfect for a long weekend. Here’s a few things to know to help plan your trip.
