9 kid-friendly activities in Cape Charles

Visit the LOVE sign. Head to the town’s beachfront at the intersection of Bay Avenue and Mason Avenue to check out Cape Charles’ famous LOVE sign, creatively composed of materials that reflect what the Eastern Shore is all about — from a tractor tire to kayaks. After you take a family photo, your kids will love climbing on the letters!

Go shell-hunting on the Barrier Islands. Taking a boat ride is thrilling in itself, but the shells you’ll find at your destination will give your kids a souvenir they’ll treasure for the rest of their lives.

Search out the Little Free Libraries. Because kids need beach reads, too! You’ll find at least three of these free library boxes around town, including one conveniently situated on Bay Avenue right beside the beach.

Rent jet skis. Got an adrenaline junkie in your family? Older kids will love the thrill of racing across the Chesapeake Bay on a jet ski. You’ll find local rentals available through Poseidon Watersports at the Town Harbor. 

Go shopping on Mason Avenue. With a candy store, kids’ store, and welcoming boutiques stocking plenty of toys and games, Mason Avenue is just as fun for kids as it is for their parents.

Take a carriage ride. Golf carts may be the preferred mode of transportation in Cape Charles, but if you’re looking for something a little bit different, try a carriage ride. Your family will love the feeling of going back in time while traversing city the historic district by horse and buggy.
