Visit Chincoteague, VA 


Day Trip



STEM Connection

Chincoteague is just special.  What can we say.  It's quaint.  It has wild horses.  It's historic.  It's an ecological sanctuary.  Did we mention it has wild horses.  It's really amazing and a great location to pull out your STEM knowledge and impart some wisdom into young minds.  We strongly recommend stopping by the Chincoteague Pony Center.  You'll get some fantastic equine history and you'll be able to touch and feed a few very sweet ponies.  Don't forget to visit the local library and check out the lighthouse across the bridge on the south end of Assateague Island!

Ideas, Notes, & Tips

The island is great for riding bikes.  Traffic is relatively light because it's a smaller town and most people just walk to wherever they're going.  We highly recommend that you either take your bikes or rent them when you get there.
