Accomack County, Virginia's "Eastern Shore" is a prime destination for those looking for quiet villages, hunting, fishing, beaches, and friendly welcoming people.
It is on the peninsula that separates the Chesapeake Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. The westernmost point in the county is Tangier Island, accessible from the county by tour boat during the summer, and the
easternmost point is Assateague Island accessible by causeway. One may watch the sunrise over the Atlantic and the sunset over the Chesapeake. In between are acres of woodland and fields interspersed with towns and villages with unique shops and stores.
Located in the far northeastern portion of Virginia's Eastern Shore lies a quaint paradise island so beautiful that it draws over one million visitors annually and has become the home of over 4,300 residents - Chincoteague Island. The Town of Chincoteague is dedicated to providing its citizens and visitors with an island rich in beauty, values, and traditions. And if you've never spent time on Chincoteague Island maybe this is your year!

SKYLINE DRIVE... The Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park. You can enter Shenandoah at four places: Front Royal near Rt. 66 and 340, Thornton Gap at Rt. 211, Swift Run Gap at Rt. 33, and Rockfish Gap at Rt. 64 and Rt. 250 (also the northern entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway). It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day.
As you travel along Skyline Drive you will notice mileposts on the west side (right side if you are traveling south) of the road. These posts help you find your way through the park and help you locate areas of interest. The mileposts begin with 0.0 at Front Royal and continue to 105 at the southern end of the park.
The speed limit is 35 mph, so you can roll down your windows, feel the breeze and experience every curve and turn of this beautiful drive. There are 75 overlooks that offer stunning views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west or the rolling Piedmont to the east. The park purposely leaves the roadsides unmowed so wildflowers put on a show all year long.
