Make a self catering house or holiday rental in the Eastern Shore of Virginia, USA your home away from home

The Eastern Shore of Virginia is divided between the Accomack and Northampton counties. The area is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, a well-known beauty spot.

Things to Do in Eastern Shore Virginia

Eastern Shore Virginia is a series of barrier islands with flat terrain dominated by cotton and soybean farming. Explore the area on foot, bicycle or by car to appreciate its peaceful atmosphere and unspoilt beauty. Go kayaking, play golf at the superior bayside golf courses or enjoy some of the excellent fishing opportunities from your Eastern Shore Virginia holiday rental. The fresh seafood that is caught in the Chesapeake Bay can be enjoyed at many restaurants along with local Virginia wines. Explore historic waterfront towns such as Cape Charles and Onancock and browse the small shops and art galleries. Community theatres and festivals in the area provide cultural entertainment, dance productions, art shows and concerts.

Places to Visit Around Eastern Shore Virginia

The island of Assateague is famous for its wild ponies. Every year some of the ponies are rounded up and swim across the bay to Chincoteague to be sold at auction, a tradition that inspired the family film Misty . The island has many restaurants and miniature golf courses. Visit the Beebe Ranch, the Museum of Chincoteague Island and the Refuge Waterfowl Museum. Tangier Island is a tiny traffic-free island to visit, famous as the locals speak a unique dialect of old American English from the Restoration period. The island is littered with stone arrowheads, probably from the Pocomoke Indians that once lived there. A short drive south connects Eastern Shore Virginia holiday homes with the Norfolk-Virginia Beach area where more commercialised resorts can be found.
