More than 2,000 shipwrecks sunk off the Coast of North Carolina in what’s called the Graveyard of the Atlantic. With all that history floating around, it was only natural to build a museum to honor and preserve the maritime culture of the Outer Banks. A state-of-the-art structure, the year round museum houses and displays artifacts, and presents a variety of exhibits and interprets the rich maritime culture that includes war, piracy, ghost ships and more. Artifacts include thoseex from the USS Monitor, which sank 16 miles off the Hatteras coast. The lobby features the stunning and original, 1854, First Order Lens from the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Current hibits include those on piracy and the Civil War on Hatteras Island.
Hatteras Island vacationers will be hard-pressed to find a local motel that’s close to the pristine and undeveloped beaches than the Cape Hatteras Motel. Located on the very southern edge of the town of Buxton, this locally renowned motel is literally steps away from the oceanfront, and is just an easy drive away from favorite attractions including the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Cape Point, and miles of pristine and un-commercialized shoreline.
The motel is made up of several buildings, including some with accommodations on the western side of NC Highway 12, (which feature Pamlico Sound views), and some that are perched on the sandy dune lines and are steps away from the shore. The ensuing complex features a nice selection of amenities, including a seasonal outdoor pool hot tub, and picnic area with BBQs, as well as two fish cleaning stations and a deep freezer to store those catches reeled in off of neighboring Cape Point. The coastally appropriate rooms feature cable TV, microwaves, Wi-Fi, mini-fridges and coffee makers, and suites and townhouses are available with dining and living areas for larger parties or longer stays. With some of the best beach access on the island, coastal lovers will be in heaven at the simple but beautifully situated Cape Hatteras Motel.
