Assateague Island, an undeveloped, 37-mile-long barrier island, offers swimming, surfing, fishing, kayaking, biking, boating and camping in its state and national parks. Assateague is also known for its flora and fauna, including free-roaming wild horses.
The Maryland Historical Trust has proclaimed Snow Hill, established as a trading post in the 17th century, as “one of the most historically intact towns in the state of Maryland.” Shops, galleries and museums grace downtown, while municipal parks provide boat landings, dockage and public facilities. Both the Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum and the Julia A. Purnell Museum offer a look back in time.
Any time of the year, full-service outfitters help you take full advantage of recreational opportunities.
Misty of Chincoteague, Marguerite Henry’s acclaimed 1947 children’s book, brought national attention to the free-roaming horses still found on Assateague Island.
