The locals enjoy listening to their police scanners, sharing the latest gossip over a hot cup of coffee at McDonalds, driving 25 mph, and getting intoxicated at one of the many local watering holes. The "good ol' boy" system is strictly honored
Chincoteague is only approximatly 3X5 miles in size, but, large enough to contain about 75 hotels, and 1000 resturants,& 30,000 rednecks.
Chincoteague is a paradise for vacationers.
Unfortunatly, not so much for the locals. Careers are limited to waitress(or waiter), cashier, housekeeper, or bartender. Some of the upper-class Chincoteaguers get into real estate. This affords them the ability to look down upon other locals.
