Welcome to Eastern Shore

One of the only places in the United States home to wild ponies and a NASA facility, Virginia’s Eastern Shore is one the state’s most interesting destinations! The crowd-pleasing Pony Swim and Auction takes place every summer in the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Watch in amazement as the region’s wild ponies are rounded up and swam across the channel to Chincoteague Island for auction! The Eastern Shore is also famous for its seafood and the waterside Wachapreague Island House Restaurant is fantastic place to sample succulent oyster or crab. And, don’t miss the exhibit hall of the Wallops Flight Facility Visitor Center, where NASA launches sounding rockets and scientific balloons! Plan your trip to Virginia’s Eastern Shore today!
