Wachapreague (say that three times fast), aka "The Little City by the Sea," is a scenic fishing village on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Its claim to fame? The Flounder Fishing Capital of the World. Of course, the presence of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science is a boon too! The name of the town came from the Wachapreague, an Algonquian people who resided in the area centuries ago. It is a great place to enjoy a quiet, picturesque afternoon on the waterfront. Surrounded by farmland, woods and water, a visit here is the perfect antidote to the harried life.
