Would Thursday be a good day to drive to Hatteras Island to catch the Ferry to Ocracoke? Family is joining us mid week but they won't arrive until Wednesday sometime..and going home Saturday.. so Thursday may be the best day that they are there to go. Is Howard's Pub the well know,n, popular place in Ocracoke to eat??? I am also looking for a place that is out on a pier from Corolla to Rodanthe... to enjoy a snack, drink... something like that as well. thank you ..
hmmm, well let me just try to put your proposed trip into perspective. we live in buxton, and we are 1.5 hours to walmart in kitty hawk. add however north you are from walmart to the 1.5hrs, then add .5 hour to the ferry from here in buxton. then expect another .5hr (but could be much longer) waiting for the ferry, then add another hour for the ferry ride, then 20 minutes to howard's pub. and if you want to stop somewhere along the way....this could easily be a 5 hour trip just to Howards.We have posters here that live on Ocracoke, maybe they can check my math or at least define the current ferry ride duration...whatever you decide, good luck!
