Close to ALMOST PARADISE, on the Seaside, is the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge, which has a fascinating Visitor’s Center, emphasizing the Shore’s Flora and Fauna and the Shore’s way of life. The Refuge itself has much to see, including a huge gun from the Battleship Missouri (on which Japan surrendered) mounted in an old Bunker that once had these huge guns protecting the mouth of the Bay during World War II.
Guests of ALMOST PARADISE also have easy day-trips available to them. A little over an hour to the North, guests can visit NASA’s Wallops Visitor’s Center and Chincoteague and the Assateague Island National Seashore (U.S. National Park) with its wild ponies, lots of other wildlife and Atlantic Ocean Beaches.
