Places to Visit

The Delmarva Peninsula offers many special attractions and annual events. Many have moved here for just that reason; others have no idea what there is to do! Some great resources to consider in addition to this listing are “Off 13” and “Day Trips in Delmarva” – both are available at a variety of local gift shops and bookstores. Frugals magazine is another great resource found at the Captain’s Cove mailboxes and businesses throughout the region. Published quarterly, this little gem is where you will find information about local parades, festivals, and events along with discount coupons.

Assateague Island isa 37-mile long barrier island located off the easterncoast of the Delmarva

Peninsula facing the AtlanticOcean. The northern two-thirds of the island is in Maryland while the southern third is in Virginia. The Maryland section contains the majority of Assateague Island National Seashore and Assateague State Park. The Virginiasection contains Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and a one-mile stretch of land containing the lifeguarded recreational beach and interpretive facilities managed bythe National Park Service.  It isbest known for its herds of feral horses,pristine beaches, and the Assateague Lighthouse. The island also contains numerous marshes, bays, and coves, including Toms Cove. Bridge access for cars is possible from both Maryland and Virginia, though no road runs the full north/south length of the island.




Berlin’s beautiful tree-lined streets, Victorian town center, museum and historic homes captivate those who visit. Forty-seven individual structures in Berlin are noted in the National Register of Historic Places and represent nearly two centuries of architectural heritage. These structures are well preserved or renovated and date from three distinct periods: Federal, Victorian, and 20th Century. The town center features mostly brick structures with compatible rooflines, proportionate window and door openings, uniform setbacks from the street, and bulkheads beneath the lower windows. Magnolias, sycamores, tulip poplars, bald cypress, and ginkgo trees add to the beauty of the town’s setting.

Berlin has also starred in two major motion pictures. In 1998, Berlin was the location for the filming of Paramount’s Runaway Bride starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. In 2001, Berlin became “Treegap”, the fictional setting for Tuck Everlasting starring Sissy Spacek, Ben Kingsley, and William Hurt.

Berlin’s Main Street boasts over 50 retail shops, 10 dining establishments, coffee shops, and more.

Accomac Walking Tour

The homes around town are all private residences. You canlook from the street, but please don't disturb the occupants. There is free parking near the Courthouse. Restrooms are available on the first floor of the County Administration building.

The Green - The center of Accomac is the intersection of Front Street and Courthouse Avenue, which is also the location of the Green. The Romanesque Revival brick Clerk's Office on the side of the Green was built in 1889 and has records dating back to 1663. The cannon on the Green is from the American Revolution.

Old Mercantile Building - 23321 Courthouse Avenue, across the street from the Green. Built in 1816, this adaptable building has served many purposes including store, customs office, post office, and bank. The main entrance was originally on the parking lot side.

Debtor's Prison - Across from the county administration building. Built in 1782 as a home for the jailer. Made into a debtor prison in 1824.

Seven Gables - 23381 BackStreet. Cross Front Street at Courthouse Avenue intersection and you'll be onCross Street. Walk one block and you're at Back Street. This rambling home was begun in 1788 and had several later additions. The 2-story porch is very nice, and rare on the Shore. The tiny, cute building that faces Cross Street was once a doctor's office.

The Haven - 23454 Back Street. Turn left on Back and across the tiny creek. Begun in 1794, this home got one addition after another. It now has 6 sections. Remarkable!

Fletcher House - 23368 Back Street. Retrace your steps up Back Street. Built in 1816 and 1820, a handsome brick home of fine proportions. Wooden door and window lintels are painted to resemble stone.

Makemie Presbyterian Church - Corner of Cross and Back Streets. The oldest of this denomination on the Eastern Shore; built in 1840. The Roman Revival temple-form church was damaged in the Civil War by Union occupation, but since restored. The octagonal belfry was added in 1889. Named for Francis Makemie, the Father of American Presbyterianism. His statue is behind the church.

Bloodworth Cottage - Corner of Drummondtown Road and Back Street. A wonderful little place built in the early 1800s that never quite grew a "big house" section. Pleasedon't peek in the windows; it's rude.

St James Episcopal Church - Turn right on Drummondtown Road. The Eastern Shore seems to specialize in gem-like little churches, and this is one of the best. Greek Revival style with a Gothic spire. Excellent trompe l'oeil paintings inside. Built in 1838.

Seymour House -23292 Front Street. From Drummondtown Road, turn right on Front Street. A classic example of the distinctive "big house little house colonnade andkitchen" architectural style. Begun in 1791, the little round brick building in the yard is an ice house. Blocks of ice were stored underground between layers of pine needles or sawdust for use in the summer.


Assateague, VA

Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge

Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge includes more than 14,000 acres of beach, dunes, marsh, and maritime forest. Within a workday’s access to millions of people, Chincoteague Refuge is one of the most visited refuges in the United States, providing approximately 1.5 million annual visitors with outstanding opportunities to learn about and enjoy wildlands and wildlife.

Most of the refuge is located on the Virginia end of Assateague Island; however, 418 acres are on the Maryland side of the island, 427 acres are found on Morris Island, and 546 acres comprise Wildcat Marsh on the northern tip of Chincoteague Island. Additionally, Chincoteague Refuge’s boundaries extend south and encompass all or part of the following barrier islands: Assawoman, Metompkin, and Cedar. The refuge’s location along the Atlantic Flyway makes it a vital resting and feeding spot for a large number and diversity of birds.


Chincoteague Refuge, originally established in 1943 to provide habitat for migratory birds (with an emphasis on conserving greater snow geese), today provides habitat for waterfowl, wading birds, shorebirds, and song birds, as well as other species of wildlife and plants. Refuge staff manage this barrier island habitat to allow many species of wildlife to co-exist, each establishing their own place in the environment. Refuge management programs restore threatened and endangered species and conserve local wildlife and plants. The refuge also provides wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities such as fishing, hunting, wildlife photography and observation, interpretation, and environmental education.


Assateague National Seashore

Assateague Island National Seashore is a protected area on a long barrier island off the coast of Maryland and Virginia. It’s known for its Atlantic beaches and for trails that wind through marshland, dunes and pine forest. In the south, Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge is home to wild Chincoteague ponies, bald eagles and migratory seabirds. Near Toms Cove is the working, 19th-century Assateague Lighthouse.

Wildlife Loop

The Wildlife Loop Road is not really a trail, but a road open to cars. However, before 3 PM each day it is open only to hikers and bikers. Even after 3 PM, the traffic is not heavy and it is slow moving, so the Wildlife Loop Road is still a fairly safe road to walk or bike.

Refuge Visitor Center: Herbert H. Bateman Educational and Administrative Center

Located at 8231 Beach Rd, the telephone number is 757-336-8122. There are a variety of exhibits, displays, brochures and wildlife-oriented programs. Refuge staff and volunteers are available to answer questions and help plan activities.

The gift shop, with a selection of books, clothing items, and jewelry, is located in the refuge visitor center and is run by the Chincoteague Natural History Association.

Woodland Trail

The Woodland Trail has its own parking lot, which is located off the main road into the Virginia unit of Assateague Island National Seashore. Signs point the way. The trail is a paved path and it is flat and easy to bike or hike. It is one of the few paved paths in the park that has any shade, though there are plenty of open sections as well.


Pony Corral

There are two pony corrals, one at the South Pen on the road going out to the beach on Assateague, the other, the North Pen on the service road (about a three-mile walk).
