For the final report in our summer travel series, Neda Ulaby takes her mother and sister on drive from Washington, D.C. to Virginia's Chincoteague Island, a bucolic summer getaway destination full of quiet walks and lush scenery.
The year-round population of the island is about 4,000, and it's dotted with small restaurants and duck decoy shops. One of the big annual events is the annual roundup of wild horses on neighboring Assateague Island.
