Virginia Hotel Reservations
Hotels in Chincoteague Island, VA
Local legends say Chincoteague (SHIN-ko-teeg) ponies, an island trademark, are descendants of mine horses that survived the shipwreck of a 16th-century Spanish galleon. Most historians agree the ponies were brought over by the first English colonists, who turned the herds loose on Assateague and Chincoteague in the late 1600s when the horses began to damage their crops.
On your exploration of the Virginia Beach area, be sure to visit the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, or the NASA Wallops Flight Facility Visitor Center. During your summer visit to Chincoteague Island, don't miss out on aquatic adventures at Toms Cove, Shelly Bay, and Oyster Bay.
