Atlantic Coast

Starting at the Statue of Liberty and winding up at free-wheeling Key West, these almost 2,000 miles of roadway run within earshot—if not sight—of the Atlantic Ocean.

Accomac

One of the most photogenic spots on the Eastern Shore, Accomac (pop. 547) is centered on an ancient-looking redbrick courthouse, flanked by a series of wooden sheds converted into professional offices. The old library next door dates from the 1780s and was used for years as a debtors’ prison; the library, courthouse, and surrounding buildings together make for a great leg-stretch spot, midway along the Eastern Shore. By way of contrast, Accomac is also home to another Eastern Shore landmark: the huge Perdue Chicken processing plant, right along US-13, which produces and packs millions of birds every year.
