FRISCO IN MARCH - Posted By: nehall on 3/18/2018
Wow....What a start to my sixth year at Osprey Landing in March!! Being able to get here Saturday looked a little doubtful on Friday, but luck was with me......not a wet spot on the road all the way from the Bonner south to Frisco. That all changed with high tide Saturday night! Avon and Pea Island were hit hard, and there was even over wash in Buxton at the usual place. Sunday has always been a ... [Read Full Post]

EARLY MAY CAMPING? - Posted By: 6Jdad on 3/18/2018
Am I an idiot for thinking tent camping at Hatteras in early May could be fun?

BEACH DRIVING ADVICE. - Posted By: firematt25 on 3/18/2018
We were around Avon last year with my Dodge 3500 4x4 Diesel that we pull our camper down with. I was very excited to get out on the beach and explore the area. Everyone said "oh you dont even have to air down", "it will go fine." I made it about 100 feet and sunk like a rock where the ramp meets the beach. No one in sight of course. I started digging it out to air down and a guy came along and pul... [Read Full Post]

MEET HATTIE - Posted By: jeetdawg on 3/18/2018
Meet Hattie the rescue pup. I lost my beloved chocolate lab in november at 12 1/2 yrs old. I met this pup few months later and fell in love. She had been abused,beat and abandoned. I named her after my favororite place in the world (Hatteras). Hopefully she will meet her namesake soon.

THEATER OF DARE, CABARET - Posted By: Pickle on 3/18/2018
I attended the Theater of Dare's performance of Cabaret last night. I recommend it highly. I've been a follower of the TOD for 20 years and their production of Cabaret is one of there best. It is a real challenge to cast a Musical. You need not only acting talent but strong vocalists. The TOD got it right on this one. The story line is somewhat "Dark" in pre WWII Berlin, but very well prese... [Read Full Post]

Top 5 Most Recent Outer Banks Restaurant Reviews
I may be crazy, but it seems like Diamond Shoals has gotten better over time. My last two meals (lunch and dinner) were in the off-season, but the meals were excellent. I've sampled the crabcake, scallops, shrimp and clam strips. Each was amazing. Best hush puppies on the island; you'd think they'd be easy to do but I've had more than a few sub-par hush puppies elsewhere. Green beans were fresh, n... [Read Full Review]

Was here in May of 2017. Excellent fish tacos. Staff was super friendly too.

SALTBOX CAFE, THE - Best Food on the Beach by far
The more I go here the more I like it and the more I am just impressed with the quality and the care they take to make a perfect meal. I had the tuna with an etouffee sauce last night that was one of the best things I have ever eaten anywhere. they take reservations and you will need one in the summer. It's not large or fancy and it is well hidden, but it is so well worth the price and the effort ... [Read Full Review]

Whenever we are in Corolla, we must have at least one meal at North Banks. Never disappointed either for lunch or dinner. Great food and service. Give it a go.

OCEANA'S BISTRO - Good Food, Reasonable Prices
Just went in the off season, and had their Friday night special (fried oysters) and they were delicious! Prices are reasonable and a good selection of beers on draft.

A great streaming webcam from Corolla Light in the northern part of the Outer Banks. This is a full motion video feed with a very clear picture of the beach and the surf.
