Ocracoke First TImer

Taking a day trip next week to Ocracoke. Going to do the night walk but are there any places of interest, stores, restaurants, beaches, nature/historical area that would be fun to see for a family with older children?

Do your home work on Black Beard the Pirate Ocracoke was his hide out, Take a walk to Springers Point. A great nature walk and where Black Beard would hang out. You will find it at the end of Light House Rd I hope the beaches will be open then they all are owned by NPS and at present closed Visit the Ocracoke Preservation Museum across from the Public docks

Howard Pub is the most popular Restaurant but there are plenty more, I have never had a bad meal at any of them. If you stop in at the Variety store the menus to all the restaurants are posted on the wall as you walk in.

Avoiding to island free press online site, the parking area at airstrip is before the blocked gate and people have been parking there to walk to beach. Rangers have not been ticketing anyone walking on beach and it sounds like they don't plan to.

A golf cart is a great way to get around; though I'm not sure how big your family is.
