World’s Largest Golf Outing and a Chincoteague Crab Feast

July 5, 2019 by Corey A. Edwards

Worlds Largest Golf Outing 2019 You’ve got to love summer. Not only is the weather fabulous, there is just so much to do and see. Virginia’s Eastern shore is no exception, with a couple of exciting events coming right up: The World’s Largest Golf Outing and a Chincoteague Crab Feast and Music Festival!

The nice thing about Chincoteage is that it doesn’t require any special events to be worth visiting. The island’s own, natural beauty and wildlife seems more than enough for most, year ’round. That being said, when we do throw a party, we know ho to do it right. The upcoming crab feast is a good example.

Maui Jack’s Waterpark opened last year on Memorial Day Weekend. While the park is quite a contrast to the area’s pristine beaches and nature preserves, it was also quite popular.

Choosing a Chincoteague Inn

January 19, 2013 by islandmanor

We know that you have a variety of lodging options when planning your trip to Chincoteague Island, and we want to make our case to you: Why should you choose Island Manor Inn?

1. Affordable Rates. Unlike the perception, our bed and breakfast is very near the price points of motels on the island, especially during the peak summer season. In fact, once you include a gourmet breakfast into the cost of a stay with us and the many free amenities we provide, you are usually breaking even with a hotel.
