The Visitor Center is located on Route 175, six miles east of US-13 and five miles west of Chincoteague Island, VA. It is a 60-minute drive south from Salisbury and Ocean City, MD and a 90-minute drive north from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.
The island of Chincoteague on the Eastern Shore of Virginia is perfectly positioned to offer spectacular public viewing sites as well as waterfront lodging options on the Chincoteague Bay offering private balcony views.
Located 30 miles north of Wallops Island, Maryland's Assateague Island provides the next closest beachside launch viewing.
Ocean City is about 40 miles away from Wallops and provides a great viewing angle for most launches both day and night.
Delaware's coast affords a number of viewing options as well from around 65 miles away. We recommend keeping your eyes peeled for night launches if you're watching from this far out.
Though Virginia Beach is about 70 miles south of Wallops, some launch azimuths take the rocket in a southern direction- keep an eye out if you're in the area!
