Assateague Island - Review
Assateague Island National Seashore is a small island off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Maryland, USA. Perfect for a romantic trip, an all ladies gang or a solo traveler, the island is full of pleasant surprises. The terrain of the island is such that it constantly changes due to the ocean waves and wind. The warm sandy beaches cover the shoreline line a beautiful gold necklace. The island also has patches of salt marshes and maritime forests. There are a number of activities to keep you occupied while you’re here. You can watch the wild horses in their most natural habitat, camp amongst the wilderness, and go canoeing or kayaking. If you’re here for a longer time, try your hand at the over-sand vehicles, shell collection and horseback riding too! Swimming and surfing here goes without saying.

Assateague Island, Berlin Reviews
Beautiful! We visited in early May. There weren't as many ponies out and about as I read b there will be later in the season, but there were still plenty to see along with other wildlife. There are nature trails and access to the beach and the bay, both with plenty of space to sit down, have lunch, and swim. There is also an interesting audio tour along one of the nature trails. The entrance fee was $20 per car, and the pass is good for a week. It was well with the money. If you have dogs with you, this is the best place to go to see the ponies as the rules for animals are the most flexible. There is a gift shop by bay side with very reasonable prices for souvenirs, drinks, and snacks.
Beautiful park with something for everyone . The wild horses that roam around the island are the big attraction but the whole island is beautiful. There are lots of different kinds of plants,birds, fish, turtles, deer and other animals there. The beach is large and very clean and nice. There is a gift shop that also offers some snacks and drinks. Employees are very helpful and friendly. Drive slowly because of all the wildlife crossing the roads The cost is $20 for a car load unless you have national pass
My family stayed in Ocean City, M.D. for vacation and made Assateague a day trip. Well we ended up liking it so much we ended up going back again the next day. The beaches were less crowded and less groomed. Which meant more seashell finds for us. The wild horses were very calm and very comfortable around the people at the beach. The water on the ocean side was much more blue than even a couple miles north at the ocean city beach. It took us about 20 minutes to get from ocmd to the state park entrance. Also on the bay side you can rent canoes, kayaks, clam rakes etc to go out on the bay and see some of the wild life.
I've only ever been to the VA side, but went to the MD side this time, and was really impressed. Not as much interaction with the horses in MD as in VA, but there weren't nearly as many people either. And you can bring your dog to almost any beach! Loved it! The VA side has a lot more biking trails that the MD side can't compete with, but it was so much less foot traffic!
This would rate as one of the all-time best beaches I've visited. Non-commercial and free of buildings and the usual mundane tourist traps found at most beaches. Most delightfully, you can take your dog (must stay on a leash). Nearby, the wild ponies delighted us. Definitely worth a visit and i can't wait to get back.
