If so, what was the purpose of your visit, and did you like it? I can remember as a kid I always had a friend who would go to Tangier Island during the summer, and I always thought "for what".

I would imagine that most people going to Tangier Island are looking for peace and quiet as well as rest and relaxation. Why not? It's a beautiful area.

Doing a quick search and reading up on the Wiki page, I would say probably vacation/fresh seafood.

It certainly does not appear like there is a ton of stuff happening on that island.

It's just another vacation spot on the Chesapeake. It's pretty small, but like anywhere else in that area people go there in the summer to relax near the water. It's sort of like Lewes, DE and Solomons, etc.

What is this supposed to mean? Does it make you feel better about yourself?

I think OP is trying to make the point that if no one has ever heard of a place, then it's obviously not worthy of vacationing there.

In my mind, that makes it MORE worthy of vacationing there.
