Visitor Guide

Welcome to the Eastern Shore of Virginia:
You’ll Love Our Nature

That’s not hard when you land on the longest stretch of wild coastline remaining on the entire East Coast.

Within an easy drive from urban centers the Eastern Shore is home to the car-less island of Tangier, over a dozen undeveloped seaside barrier islands, award-winning wineries, and historic waterfront towns like charming Cape Charles and Onancock.

We’re a BLAST – literally! Rocket launches soar over our skies not far from our wild Chincoteague Island Ponies, thanks to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Space Authority and NASA.  Add to this a thriving artisan's community.  All the while we retain an authentic coastal heritage of watermen tiling the tides and small family farms on our bayside and seaside.

The Eastern Shore of Virginia Tourism Commission provides assistance to working press filing stories about the Eastern Shore as a travel destination.
