You didn't come to Cape Charles to Netflix and chill. Get out to the water!
Rayfield's Pharmacy has an old school breakfast/lunch counter like it's a 1955 Woolworth's store. The old salty locals hang out here... pick up their cholesterol meds and then wash them down with some pancakes, bacon and coffee. Don't worry, they are very welcoming!
Watch the sunset... on the EAST COAST. It's like being in California without all of the terrible people. Just kidding, California.
Cape Charles is a golf cart friendly town and The Sandlot House has its own golf cart! Sign our 20 page waiver (ok, it's only 1 page) and you can take the golf cart around town. Take it to the beach, to the stores, to Brown Dog, to the Shanty or just for a ride. Everything... and I mean EVERYTHING is more fun when a golf cart is involved.
Ben Franklin once said that "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." And, Cape Charles Brewing Company makes some great beers for you to test out this sage philosophy. There is even a golf cart path from the beach to the brewery. Bottoms up!
Built in 1941, the Palace Theatre is the kind of place your Dad took your mom to on a date to see Citizen Kane. Like all of Cape Charles, it's so charming it hurts.
Family & dog-friendly, the Barrier Islands Center (BIC) is just a short drive away in Machipongo. One of the Cape's best kept secrets, you can spend the day learning all about the barrier islands. Trust me, it's great! And, admission is FREE.
We all know Mary Ann was the true smokeshow of Gilligan's Island (Ginger was SO overrated). Now live like that gang and choose your adventure: Reserve your tickets for a Half Day Fishing Trip, Sunset Cruise & Dolphin Search or a Night Fishing Trip. With tickets starting at just $15, this is one of the best bargains in town!
We met David & Anna (proprietors of Cape Charles Boat Tour Co.) while we were filming for an HGTV show. Yes, we are BIG TIME reality stars (not). They are awesome and their barrier island boat tour is a MUST. Worth every penny!
Cape Charles is FULL of history. Let your inner history nerd run wild! Simply let google be your guide or stop by the Cape Charles Museum & Welcome Center and grab a walking tour brochure.
Do your kids want to swim in pools/splash park, play mini-golf, bounce on one of those giant blob things, or go to an arcade? If so, Cherrystone Campground is your place. Day passes are available!
Do you love amaze-balls food? How about amaze-balls food served within the confines of an old Mercantile building that they literally picked up and floated across the bay to the Cape Charles Marina? Ya... it's cool. Reservations STRONGLY recommended.
