    Assateague Island National Seashore is operated by the National Park Service so all buildings where Park Service employees work are off limits. Chincoteague I don't know much about, I don't go there often. Public areas should not be a problem though.
    Yes I carry a Bible and a Gun, your point.

    Hey Doc - weather wise your timing his good. You know the routine on NPS facilites (buildings) & National Wildlife Refuges = in accordance with federal, state and local firearms laws. With most of this in Virginia, you are good to go.

    Lots to see and do:

    What to avoid: Maryland
    The northern portion of Assateague Island is in Maryland, the southern portion is in Virginia.

    Thanks for the info. Bad news is I've been informed that the so-called powers that be, all leave has been cancelled until further notice (again). Looks like I'm not going to make it to Saturday morning breakfast either.

    Chincoteague is a National Wildlife Refuge (FWS), Assateague is a National Seashore (NPS), both are part of the DoI and are ok for carry IN VIRGINIA, except for the buildings as noted above in a previous post; remember that Assateague extends into MD - DON'T cross that line. What's worth seeing depends on you; to me, you see one pony, you've seen all of them. Avoid MD and avoid the NASA Wallops Island facility while carrying (Federal Facility).
