This is the Chincoteague Island forum, so most of us will probably be a bit prejudiced, but I heartily recommend the VA side. In VA, Assateague is a National Wildlife Refuge - there are nature trails and exhibits, as well as wild ponies and a beautiful beach. The MD side is a state park - you can camp overnight there and it's a bit more built up. Honestly, it's the same island, so maybe look at your driving route and see which works out better for you!
