Wind your way to the top of the recently restored and repainted on Chincoteague Island. Dating to 1867, the current lighthouse is actually the second on the site. The original was built in 1833 and nearly 100 feet shorter; inadequate for the need. The lighthouse is open weekends from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., April through November. Donations are accepted, but there is no longer an admission fee.

Take them out to the ball game — minor league baseball, that is. As one of our readers pointed out in 2014’s version of this article, “Do not forget any of Virginia’s 9 minor league baseball teams, 3 Coastal Plain League teams, 3 Ripken League baseball teams, and the Virginia Valley League teams. All of these towns that host baseball teams, you can get tickets for less than $10.” Hat tip to Jonathan!
