The street address for GPS is: 7295 Young Street, Machipongo, VA.
The BIC is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, just 20 miles north of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and 10 miles south of the town of Exmore, between mile markers 90 and 91 on the western side of Route 13.
The entrance to the driveway is on Young Street, directly across the highway from the Machipongo Trading Company, where you can stop for coffee, smoothies or lunch if your historic visit has left you feeling a little hungry.
Look for the brown historical information signs as well as the red buoy and Barrier Islands Center sign.
