Chincoteague Island, Virginia

Wild ponies grazing among dunes and salt marshes belong to the only wild herd of horses east of the Rockies but romantic stories of wrecked galleons spilling out ponies are highly speculative. Annual auctions keep the herd size at 150 animals. This favorite wildlife sanctuary on beach front and marshland is fringed by evergreen trees shaped by wind and blowing sand.
