A historic and charming place to live and visit, Wachapreague is surrounded by farmland, woods and water, a visit here is the perfect antidote to the harried life. With only 200 permanent residents, you will never feel crowded strolling the streets of our lovely Victorian-era town. Long famous for its sports fishing, the town today is a base for enjoying some of the last undeveloped and unspoiled wetlands and barrier islands in the mid-Atlantic States. The bird watching here is fantastic, especially during the spring and fall migration. Biking is a breeze due to the flat terrain. And if your own fishing skills are rusty, there are several restaurants in the area to sample our seafood. Whether you are new to town, a visitor or a long-time resident, we invite you to explore our website. Please feel free to call on anyone listed here for information, reservations or help in getting your questions answered. If you are new to Wachapreague, we hope as you learn more about our town, you'll plan a trip to visit soon!
