Welcome to Chincoteague, where Marguerite Henry wrote the famous book Misty of Chincoteague. Walk for miles along the pristine beach at the Assateague Island National Seashore or catch a glimpse of the famous Chincoteague ponies wandering the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. This is America’s happiest seaside town, according to Coastal Living, with dozens of shops, restaurants, galleries, and kid-friendly amusements. Spend the day at the water park and treat yourself to the wildly popular Island Creamery.
