Below is a list of great things to do on your next vacation to Hatteras, NC:

  1. Its a some what secluded beach community.
  2. Its not too far out the way where you couldn’t find a local store, gas station and everything else you would need.
  3. a lot of nice beach cottages for rent or there is camping if that’s what you prefer.
  4. Also on the east coast, particularly the mid east around Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and most of North Carolina (with Hatteras being an exception),
  5. there is not a lot of places you can legally take a 4 wheel drive vehicle on the beach.
  6. And as long as you’re fishing you can stay on the beach all night.
  7. There is also some nice fishing charters offered here that cruise out to the gulf stream and do some deep sea fishing for red snapper, grouper, trigger fish, and black sea bass, maybe a dew dolphin as well if you're lucky and also sport fishing such as marlin and tuna .
  8. Normally there is decent surf for surfing and wind surfing classes nearby.
  9. It is also home to the tallest light house in the USA if sights strike your fancy.
  10. You’re only a ferry boat ride away from an even more secluded island, Ocracoke, I’ve yet to go to this one so cant offer much info on it but plan to go sometime in the near future.
  11. There is a small amusement park, and I use that term lightly, because if you blink you could miss it, north of Hatteras +- 30 miles, in the Waves, Salvo area. Its small but offers bungee jumping, go cart racing, and a go cart like race with boats.
  12. The Wright memorial where the Wright brother first took flight is also +- an hour north of Hatteras in Kitty hawk, also a very popular and populated place(Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hill all in the same general area) in the summer for cottage rentals.
  13. If out near there you might as well check out the play on the Lost Colony in Manteo.
  14. By the way if you decide to go camping make sure you have plenty of bug spray the mosquitoes can be quite bad at times, normally on the beach you won’t see them and that’s where you’ll most likely find me good luck and hope it helps
