My sisters & I are planning a trip for the week of July 4th. While in the area, we'd like to visit Chincoteague. They wanted to see the pony swim, but it looks like we'll miss that. Unfortunately, my sisters aren't laidback tourists. They travel with a daily agenda. Is there enough to do to keep them occupied, w/o the swim? We can still see the horses running on the beach, right? Should we spend the night on the Island or make it a day trip from VA Beach? (We plan to stay at VA Beach a few nights.) If we stay the night, where should we stay? Our requirements are very clean accommodations & 2 bathrooms. Being able to see the horses from our accommodations, would a big plus.
Sorry for so many questions, but I don't want to suggest a destination they won't enjoy.
Thanks in advance for your help. I really appreciate it.
