Helpful Travel Tips
Whether you're going to the beach or the mountains, we want you to enjoy your trip safely. Here are some tips to keep in mind before, and while, you travel.
1 Choose the right clothing to beat the heat
Bring your hat, sunscreen and flip-flops. Even on overcast days the sun can make you red as a steamed crab, and the walk from the car to the water can feel like you’re crossing on hot coals without proper footwear.
2 Take a hike, not a tick
Ticks love tall grass and woods, so if you are going out hiking, wear a hat, tuck your pants into your socks to protect your exposed ankles, and spray a mixture of water and tea tree oil on your cuffs to drive off pests.
3 Don't pet the ponies
The wild horses of Assateague Island may look cuddly, but they're still wild animals. Watch them from a safe distance and don't try to feed them (horse bites aren't nice).
4 Hand over your small bills
That isn't a ransom demand, just a tip to prepare you before you stop at roadside produce stands. You'll pass a lot of great places for farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, but many small stands don't take credit cards, so bring a few bucks to drop into the honor box.
