Chincoteaque Getaway




Head to Chincoteague Island to experience the world famous Pony Round Up and Swim. Chincoteague's "Saltwater Cowboys" will herd about 150 ponies across the Assateague Channel to move them from Assateague Island to neighboring Chincoteague Island. After the swim, the ponies will parade to the carnival grounds where the foals will be auctioned on Thursday, July 28. On Friday, July 29, the adult ponies will make the return swim to Assateague Island where they will live in the wild for another year. You won't want to miss a second of this exciting event so stay at the Island Manor House, a historic bed and breakfast right on Main Street where the pony parade will take place.
