Virginia's Eastern Shore — The most beautiful place in the world.
Cape Charles was established at the turn of the century as a railroad and ferry town. The town has one of the largest concentrations of late-Victorian and turn-of-the-century buildings on the East Coast. It has been designated as a Historic District on the Virginia Landmarks Register, and is also on the National Register of Historic Places. The charming downtown provides amenities including hotels, restaurants, residential areas, and retail within walking distance of the working harbor and Cape Charles Yacht Center.
The town is also home to Bay Creek, a 1,700-acre, award-winning resort offering world-class golf courses, a pristine private beach, and wide range of accommodation choices, restaurants and shops.
The Eastern Shore is a sportsman’s paradise, offering hunting, fishing, boating, bird watching, and other water activities. Two major attractions include the sister islands of Assateague and Chincoteague. Chincoteague is home to a national wildlife refuge, and Assateague offers expansive beaches with wild ponies and miles of hiking trails.
For a more cosmopolitan experience, the oceanfront resort area of Virginia Beach and the commercial center of downtown Norfolk are both within a short drive and offer live music, festivals, dining and nightlife.
