Unless you plan to drive the 10 miles to Ocean City for a night of debaucerous nightlife, nightlife in the state and national parks on Assateague island consist of fires on the beaches and coolers of beer. There are specific rules as to where fires can be built, but it is worth it. We spent two nights down on the beach with groups of people that we met and had two incredible and different experiences...on one night we saw shooting stars so low in the sky that they left eerie streaks of light in the mist for hours and on another watched a group of horses gallop down the beach in the dark illuminated by the light from our fire.
Dress Code: Anything that covers your skin and dissuades the mosquitoes! It gets a little cold at night too, no matter how hot the day was.
What's a trip to a beach town without Mini Golf? At least that's my husband's attitude.
After walking on Assateage and before cooking up dinner at the campground on Chinoteague, we mini golfed.
