I really think everyone should have somewhere special they go once the weather turns nice. It can be close to home, like a swimming hole or a sunny riverbank a short drive away. Sometimes it is a little farther out – a stretch of beach up the coastline, or windy hillside cabin with buckets of sunlight.
For many in Virginia and along the Atlantic seaboard, Chincoteague Island is just such a place. While we have a thriving and artistic permanent community, the influx of visitors that love the island and cherish their memories of her make summer a special time for everyone.
So, do you have somewhere to call your own? A place where you can be free to take your time and relax – without feeling guilty that you should be doing something “more productive?” If not, consider scheduling a visit to our Island – Chincoteague is a welcoming place where you can enjoy a wide array of water sports, nature, shopping and dining.
If you don’t have anything planned, why not come the weekend of August 9th. Music at the Dock will be taking place in Robert Reed Park along the waterfront in Downtown Chincoteague on Saturday Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. This is a fun bonus event to enjoy when visiting Chincoteague, since all Music at the Dock concerts are free. The Zydeco band Squeeze Bayou will be playing. Bring a chair or blanket and find a spot on the lawn to enjoy the performance.
