Driving Directions

Salisbury Regional Airport (SBY) 
Take a left out of the parking lot (it’s a small commuter airport) and go 3-4 miles until you reach a stop sign and take a right on Route 12 (towards Salisbury). After a few miles, you should see signs for US Route 13 and an overpass (it’s the only one on this road). Take US Route 13 South (towards Norfolk). Keep on this route and you will hit the Virginia State Line in approximately 45 miles. Go about another 3-4 miles to the first stop light in Virginia (the Pizza Hut is a good landmark at this intersection). Take a left at this light. This road is Route 175 (to Chincoteague). Go about 5 miles and you will come to the intersection with Atlantic Rd (Ocean Deli and Royal Farms gas station are at this intersection). Take a left on Atlantic Rd. and follow it to the NASA Wallops Main Gate.
