Assateague & Chincoteague Island

One of the things we were looking for on this trip was to see the Wild Horses of Assateague & Chincoteague. They are located within a short driving distance from Ocean City, Maryland on the barrier Island of Assateague. Here you'll find the Assateague and Chincoteague National Parks. These parks provide an abundance of nature and outdoor recreation, including camping, fishing, hunting, four wheel drive vehicle beach access, trails for hiking, and much more.
There are no food consession stands in the parks where you go to see the horses so pack a picnic lunch. The $15 you pay, per carload to get into the park will give you admission to both parks at Assateaque & Chincoteaque. (The pass is good for I think it was 6 days.) You cannot drive straight through from Assateaque to Chincoteaque, you'll have to leave Assateaque and go down and drive around to Chincoteaque. On the way you'll pass the towm of Berlin, MD where scenes from the movie "Runaway Bride" starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere were filmed. Also used for the movie "Tuck Everlasting" I don't know exactly what you'll see as we didn't stop off. You can check it out here:
Here are links for more information and tomorrow I'll start posting pictures I took on the two places.
Assateague State Park is Maryland's only ocean park:
