Tangier Island

Travelers are always on the go just to get to that perfect place that serves the best for a quiet getaway. Finding such a heavenly site is a task in and of itself. Travelers often have their idea of journey and dream about it all the time and don’t rest until they find one. How about getting lost in an island? Not talking about the Tom Hank’s movie here, but at least something like that if you’re entirely prepared. Well, let’s hope nothing untoward happens, but just sit tight for a peaceful couple of days or even a week. Vacationing in crowded places often gets pretty boring, so the idea of traveling to some place all for us springs up. These trips have great benefits as you’d be venturing on your own and trying to understand the purpose of your travel. We’d now talk about Tangier Island as a possible destination for travelers.

Tangier Island is located in USA’s Atlantic Coast, off Virginia. It is 3 miles in length and 1 mile wide. This small island is twelve miles off the North of Virginia and the last fishing villages left in isolation on Chesapeake Bay. When you land here, it offers you this completely different feeling. The accent of the locals has this distinct blend found within Old South and Elizabethan English. You could see them driving golf carts on this careless island. The watermen here still carry age-old traditions of crab harvesting in the Chesapeake Bay.

If you intend to undertake the waterman tour, Tangier captains teach you the art of pulling crab pots. You could also have the opportunity of trying the mouthwatering crab cakes and crab bisque cooked by watermen’s wives at the Fisherman’s Corner Restaurant. You could also rent a kayak for free at Tangier History Museum and Interpretive Cultural Center.
