America’s Happiest Beach Town Is Right Here In Virginia… And You’ll Want To Plan Your Trip

Chincoteague Island: it’s the land of saltwater, sunsets, and majestic ponies. Is it any wonder why Coastal Living named this place the happiest seaside town in America? This Eastern Shore treasure provides access to pristine beaches in the setting of a charming small town. Not much has changed or expanded in Chincoteague over the past several years, which has wonderfully preserved its identity. It’s the beach without the traffic and a destination without the tourism. If you’re looking for the perfect getaway this summer, the right spot may be a lot closer than you think.

Have you visited Chincoteauge Island recently? We’d love to hear about your experience there!
