We might have a possible job opportunity on the eastern shore. We know little about it except that it's rural. Any thoughts are very welcome!

Also, as I'm doing research, it's looking like much of the development seems to be on the Chesapeake Bay side? Are there any Atlantic Ocean beaches there? And, if not, why?

Sorry to seem so dumb, but it's hard researching such a remote area via computer.

If you like "middle of nowhere" (literally. For miles upon miles upon miles upon miles * 10) then you'll be okay there.

If you need civilization, don't do it.

There are no malls, there is no big box, there are few restaurants, there are few things to do. They do have a Wal-Mart that opened about two years ago but that's about it.

There are barrier islands off the east coast. I suspect that is why there is little development on the Atlantic." I don't believe there is development on those islands with the exception of part of Chincoteague Island.

You may want to buy a copy of Off 13: The Eastern Shore of Virginia Guidebook by Kirk Mariner and Dolores Tyler. It's out of print, but you can buy used copies from Amazon or Alibris. Amazon has four customer reviews of this book.

Good luck.
