Away From The Beach: Oregon Inlet Fishing Center for deep sea fishing, headboats, watching ships come in with their catches (this occurs at 4:30 PM every day, is free and lots of fun to watch). Visit the nearby town of Manteo to see Elizabeth II sailing ship, living history, and great exhibits at the Festival Park. Attend the Lost Colony outdoor drama and see the Elizabethan garden. Hike at Nags Head Wood Preserve and see a maritime forest. Go crabbing with the kids because they are hilarious to watch. Bicycle along the beachfront path.
A Great Day Trip: Leave early in the AM. Go south over the Bonner Bridge, heading down to the Hatteras lighthouse. Go swimming at the beach afterward. Keep going south to take the free ferry to Ocracoke. Have lunch on the dock. Check out the national park activities and Howard Street, a quaint old street that's more a path. Drive around town a little--it's tiny. Stop by the Ocracoke lighthouse (you can't go in). Head back north stopping for a swim at one of the wonderful beaches on Ocracoke. Try to get back over the Bonner Bridge by 4:30 PM to see the deep sea fishing fleet arrive at the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center.
Beach Activities: Sunset is the best time. Sunrises can be beautiful. Coquina Beach has great facilities and warmer water because of the gulf stream. Sound beaches are great for kids. Kite flying heaven. Bocce ball and volleyball. Surf fishing. Boogie boarding and surfing. Night hikes with flashlights. Bonfires (permission is easy).
