This month, Recreation News is giving away a Chincoteague Virginia Oyster Trail Getaway on the Virginia Coast.
Enjoy 3 days/2 nights on Chincoteague Island, a 200-year old history-rich village lying four miles off the Virginia Coast, exploring the ponies, beaches and oysters on the Virginia Oyster Trail.
Your getaway includes lodging at the colorful coastal Key West Cottages with pool access and complimentary breakfast. Enjoy fresh local seafood at Don’s Seafood Restaurant and at Ray’s Shanty, menus feature the unparalleled briny flavors of the Chincoteague Salt Oysters.
Explore pristine undeveloped beaches with wild ponies on Assateague Island and Museum of Chincoteague to see the artfully preserved Chincoteague ponies known as Misty and Stormy. Your adventure continues on the water as you tour Chincoteague to Assateague waterways with Daisey’s Island Cruise.
Allow time to immerse yourself in a waterman’s life at Tom’s Cove Aquaculture, offering the finest and freshest oysters harvested from the cool, clear waters found around the historic seafood town of Chincoteague Island. Top off your quintessential Chincoteague getaway with a scoop of delicious homemade ice cream from the Island Creamery.
November is Virginia Oyster month. We encourage everyone to visit www.VirginiaOysterTrail.com to TASTE, TAKE and TOUR the 8 Oyster Flavor Regions of Coastal Virginia.
The Virginia Oyster Trail features unique places that invoke the ‘merroir to terroir’ tastes of Virginia Oysters while highlighting watermen and locally-owned businesses that align with the program’s oyster-focused narrative. By providing visitors with numerous activities and amenities to make their stay pleasurable, the Virginia Oyster Trail also seeks to increase awareness of the benefits Virginia Oysters have on local economies; with emphasis on community development, environmental stewardship, entrepreneurial growth, health attributes and the cultural integration of Virginia’s distinctive coastal way of life.
