This is a wonderful national seashore. There is not a lot of easy access, though there are a few very nice driving tours and great walking tours at the south end. The light house is not accessible and work on the road has closed the paths to and from the parking lot. Take the handicapped access road. There are no... 更多
It was $20 to enter the park but was valid for a week. The first day we spent in OC was rainy so we drove around the park and saw a few horses. We came back on a nicer day to enjoy the beach. There is also a few hiking trails through the park.

We never tire of the natural beauty, wild horses, peacefulness and friendly/helpful/interesting visitor center. Note: we observed a bald eagle not too far from here... 更多

While visiting Chincoteague Island VA, we were pleased to find out that pets are allowed on the beach area of Assateague Island National Seashore. Many of the the state parks in the area do not allow pets, so this was a big plus for us. There is a fee for entering, but we used our National Park pass to enter... 更多
