My teenage daughter and I are driving from NC to NJ, leaving early this Friday, and decided to go a bit out of our way to see Chincoteage/Assateague. We may only have the afternoon and early evening before heading to a local hotel and continuing on our way on Saturday. We are most interested in seeing ponies and enjoying the sunset.
1 - It looks like we can get onto Chincoteague from Rte. 13. From Chincoteague, can we get onto Assateague and drive all the way up to the northern end, and exit there? I'm thinking we could maximize what we see that way, but it's hard to tell from the map if there are roads.
2 - I know this is the Chincoteague forum, but how would you suggest we split our time, in terms of where we go, to maximize our chance of seeing ponies?
I think we will be on Assateague at sunset since we are heading north, so I will post in that forum for viewing recommendations. They don't seem nearly as active, though.
