To help you find your way around our 70 mile long pennisula, we've divided the ES in 3 sections: Upper, Middle, and Lower.
Visiting the Chincoteague Ponies on the Upper Shore and want a nearby restaurant? Click on "EAT" and view restaurants in the Upper Shore.
Staying in Cape Charles and want to check out outdoor activities in the surrounding area? Click on "Get Outside" and view kayaking, golfing, etc. found on the Lower Shore.
From the North, after crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge on I-295, continue on to I-95 (Delaware Turnpike) to exit 4A for Route 1 South (this is much better than taking US 13 direct from I-295). Route 1 is expressway most of the way. Continue to exit 97 which is an expressway connection to Route 13 - turn south. Continue on US 13 to the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
From the South, take Route 13 North and cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel from the Norfolk-Virginia Beach area. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel connects Route 13 in Virginia Beach to Route 13 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
