Chincoteague Island has a gorgeous waterfront area where you can see fishing boats coming and going during the day and night. You'll find beautiful recreational boats that are worth millions of dollars where their owners take them out to play on the water or out for a day of fishing. I can see why millions of people flood to this area during their annual summer vacations.
The two islands are within driving distance of one another and when planning a visit to Chincoteague, I highly recommend that you hop on over to Assateague and check that out too! Plus, you'll find the famous Assateague Lighthouse here too! While these two items are similar in their beauty, they do have their own unique charm.
