    Don't Miss! Things To Do in Assateague Island National Seashore

    Want to live on the edge? Visit a place recreated each day by ocean wind and waves. Life on Assateague Island has adapted to an existence on the move. Explore sandy beaches, salt marshes, maritime forests and coastal bays. Rest, relax, recreate and enjoy some time on the edge of the continent.

    Bands of wild horses freely roam amongst plants and native animals that have adapted to a life of sand, salt and wind. Special thickened leaves and odd shapes reveal the plant world's successful struggle here. Ghost crabs buried in the cool beach sand and tree swallows plucking bayberries on their southward migration offer glimpses of the animal world's connection to Assateague.

    The National Park Foundation encourages and promotes local fundraising support at individual national park sites. Assateague Island Alliance is a nonprofit partner of the National Park Service dedicated to providing enjoyment and hands-on learning experiences for millions of park visitors.
