Assateague Island National Seashore

Assateague Island National Seashore — Maryland and Virginia

Assateague Island National Seashore is known for its Atlantic beaches and hiking trails that weave around salt marches, dunes, and forests.

Near the beaches, the island’s bayside offers visitors a secluded paradise complete with kayaking, swimming, clamming, and crabbing in shallow warm bay waters, according to Liz Davis, chief of interpretation and education at the seashore.

Davis said to keep your eyes open from late September to early October because butterflies that migrate along the Atlantic pathway are often resting on the island.
