to the
Eastern Shore
of Virginia

Relax- that’s not hard when you land on the longest stretch of wild coastline remaining on the entire East Coast. Located a short distance from major cities, the Eastern Shore is home to the car-less Tangier Island, 14 undeveloped seaside barrier islands, an award-winning winery, and historic waterfront towns like charming Cape Charles and Onancock. We’re a BLAST – literally! Rocket launches soar over our skies not far from our wild Chincoteague Ponies, thanks to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport and NASA. Our thriving artisan’s community and authentic coastal heritage make us unique. Experience our history and see watermen tilling tides and visit family farms on both bayside and seaside. We think you’ll like it here.
