The Spring Awakening of Chincoteague and Assateague

April 24th, 2012 by islandmanor

Chincoteague and Assateauge Islands fully awaken in May. All shops and restaurants that were closed for the winter re-open. Scenic cruises to view the wild ponies of Assateague Island and charter fishing cruises resume after a winter hiatus. The weather is mild, the crowds slim. It’s a wonderful time to spend a few days at Island Manor Chincoteague Island Bed and Breakfast.
