At the Visitors Center discover how the horse population is believed to have arrived at this barrier Island. Local legends say that 300 years ago a Spanish Galley sank off the shores of the barrier islands and they were carrying horses. The strongest of the horses swam to sure and the horses seen today are descendants of the original horses. Since the remains of a Spanish Galley have been found off the coast there is credibility to the story. On the way back to the hotel you will have the opportunity to wander the streets of Berlin the setting for two recent movies. In 1998 Berlin was the location for the filming of Paramount’s Runaway Bride starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. In the movie Berlin became the fictional town of Hale, Maryland, Maggie’s (Julia Roberts) hometown. Main Street became a “hot” set as filming was done using many of the downtown shops, not to mention hundreds of locals as extras. Then in 2001 Berlin became “Treegap”, the fictional setting for Tuck Everlasting starring Sissy Spacek, Ben Kingsley, and William Hurt. Downtown Berlin was transported back to the turn of the century complete with dirt roads, horses and carriages, and period costumes.
