  • Tangier Island: A Sports Love Affair

    by Casey | Posted on September 16th, 2010

    Crabs are more common than cars or ball courts on Tangier Island, but the residents do stretch out a net to play tennis on the air strip.

    High-speed internet has come to Tangier Island, a barrier island in the Chesapeake Bay, and the residents’ insatiable appetite for sports is being met.

    Why is this big news? The residents’ sports love affair has garnered the Island a title - Biggest Sports Town in America, per capita.

    Yes, this sweet haven of crab fishermen is tiny. A population of 535, in fact. But their love of sports is huge. Keep your eye peeled for more about Tangier Island.

      If you want to visit Tangier, better hurry. The Onancock-Tangier Ferry runs till the end of September and starts again in April.

      Onancock is centrally located on Virginia’s Eastern and has some of the “best B&Bs in the nation.”

      Stay in Onancock and see one of the Top Ten “Coolest Small Towns in America,” From there, visit Tangier Island…then go to Chincoteague, the Best Beach Town in America. There’s lots to see and do on the Eastern Shore.
