Atlantic Coast

One of the most photogenic spots on the Eastern Shore, Accomac (pop. 519) is centered on an ancient-looking redbrick courthouse. The library down the street, 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.
