''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....''
''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 hotel was very clean, staff was nice and hospitable but the room was small and very common. The bar with live outdoor entertainment across the street was not an appropritate scene for my 12 year old. People were loud and drunk and started fighting when we arrived.

''Ladies...if you want to get rid of your husband for hours...send him here. LOL My husband loves the pier.

''This was one of the places that was on my ''Must See'' list. It did not disappoint. The stories of the rescues were very interesting and seeing the house and the kitchen building like it would have been back then was a lot of fun. We did not get to tour the original 1874 station because it was damaged from a lightning strike. I definitely recommend visiting if you're going to the Outer Banks....''

''I believe it's free to tour this facility. It's geared toward adults with beach conservation etc. but it has a nice walk-through display on local flora and fauna for the kids to enjoy. The gift shop is nicely stocked....''
