Where Civilization Begins
Nov 28, 2013 by: Tom058 from Myersville
I will start by framing where we come from, we always visit off peak season and never camp here, we prefer the hot showers and flush toilets at the adjourning State Park. That said we always visit Assateague Island National Seashore when in the area, usually every day. We spend our time walking the trails, the beach and photographing wild life. The Ranger led walks are always interesting. Many times there using something new to experience, for example after a recent storm an old shipwreck was revealed. The migrating water birds also change with the season. The new visitors center adds to the visit.
Just 8 miles south of Ocean City MD

Step back in time and see the informative National Park Service visitor center to learn what you are about to witness. The rangers are great and will answer your park related questions. Do some research into the life, feeding, care and beginnings of these wild horses. Walk the beach and find some unusual shells. Its well worth the trip. Bring your camera and get a few images of the ponies. They are not shy at all, be careful. There are pictures of horse bites at the visitor center. Do not feed, hassle, or pet the wild animals, $100. fine + you or your children may get hurt. Think first.

Come and see all the wild horses! Walk along the beaches. Camp overnight. Get up close and person witl the other wildlife. Such a peaceful place to visit. Wish there were more horses on this visit. They were eating out into the march grass which didn't allow us to get as close to them as we had previously.

If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful and natural beach this is the spot to visit. It has a wonderful bike riding path and wild horses are often spotted here as well. When you need a boardwalk fix, Ocean City is just up the road.
