Home of the famous Wild Ponies!
The Assateague Wild Horses on the Maryland side, and the Chincoteague Ponies on the Virginia side, are herds of feral horses that have lived on the barrier islands since the late 17th century.
Made famous by Marguerite Henry’s classic tales, these wild ponies are sure to delight any horse lovers, and this is a vacation destination I HIGHLY recommend!
The first stop is the Assateague Island National Seashore Visitor Center, that has lots of exhibits, marine life specimens, a movie about the park, and your National Park Bookstore.
Don’t forget to grab your Junior Ranger book!
This particular stretch of lovely beach pictured below, falls within the Assateague Island State Park facilities on the northern end of the island. After you cross the bridge from the Visitor Center, you first pass through the State Park.
The beaches are beautiful!
Soft sands and lots of wildlife!
