''Most of the museum is still apparently under construction. The main attraction here is the full Fresnel lens on display. Since only a portion of the museum is open, it takes about 30 minutes to go through it. The admission is free....''
''The best breakfast and the nicest people on the beach. We visit every year and will be back next year. In fact, we usually rent our house each year based on the location of it to the pier. Looking forward to next year....''
''Coming from a family who loves the water we had a wonderfull time fishing. The captian was kind and the crew just as nice. I would love to do this again the next time I am in town with the kids....''
''You cannot visit Corolla without making a tour of the lighthouse and grounds. It's a great family outing, but can become crowded in season. The guides only allow less than 10 people at a time to tour the lighthouse. Best time to visit is right after a rain storm...it's deserted!...''
''A small museum, run by locals that love the island and want you to love it too. Ocracoke is a quaint place to visit but it surpassed being just a beach trip when I learned about the people and events that made Ocracoke what it is today. Museum offered ''Back Porch'' talks that were sometimes informational and often fun. The week we were there they offered storytelling two days with storytellers attending Donald Davis' National Storytelling Workshop....''
''I love this pier. It's a great place for families to come and have a good time. You wouldn't think that you could do a lot on a pier besides fishing, but here you can play pool and have your kids play in the arcade while the adults walk the pier. It's great!...''
''Along with the informative film presentation and displays depicting the story of the famed ''Lost Colony of Roanoke Island,'' my family and I were intrigued as we discovered the story of the other ''lost'' colony. In 1862, escaped enslaved Africans sought the recently liberated from the Confederacy island as a refuge of freedom. They established their own colony that was to be a model used throughout the South of how former Black slaves were to transition in to a viable and self-sufficient peo...''
''How could you pass up the opportunity to climb the highest sand dune in the Outer Banks? If you have kids, make sure they empty their pockets of any valuables before they hit the dunes (and you too, if you’re planning to roll in the sand!). They will love the fun of climbing up and then tumbling down the dunes, but be prepared…they will be absolutely full of sand when they’re done. Bring some water to help with the inevitable mouthful of sand. Bring a kite if you have one and join the folk...''
''This house reminded me alot of the Biltmore House in Asheville. Not in size but in the grandeur of the house itself, how modern it was for it's time. It had an elevator, a refrigerator in the kitchen and central heat throughout most of the house. During the audio tour, you get to see many rooms in the house including the bedrooms of Mr and Mrs Knight. The bathrooms were plumbed for fresh and saltwater and Mrs Knight's bathroom had a bidet. This is one of the few homes on the Outer Banks that has...''
