Yes, I am one of those tourists from the city planning to come to Chincoteague this Summer. We will be traveling with an 8 year old child. We are looking at some places right now and want to reserve. We intend to come for Pony week and again at the end of August, maybe early Sept as NYC schools get such a late start this year.
Here are my questions;
Is canoeing feasible or will we get rocked all over by the motor boats?
We have a canoe and want to use it for the pony week to watch the ponies swim and are looking for a place to stay where we can use the canoe everyday. I am wondering if we stay on the West side of the island, will we have a far paddle to get to the beach and other things?
Can we crab over there? We've never crabbed but really want to try and catch & cook are own crabs. I'd love any info so we are prepared.
Is there other types of fishing? Do I need a license?
What about shopping? Is there a place to get fresh veggies or should be bring our own?
Is it safe to bike along Main Street? For an 8 year old? 7
Where would be the best place on the Island to stay if we want to do a lot of biking, go to the beach on bikes, canoe and crab with a child in tow?
Are the mosquitoes as bad as they say?
What might the days after Labor Day be like? Will everything be closed?
Where can we find other children for ours to play with? Are there any types of kids programing? day camps? things like that that we might send her to?
