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.
The Inn on Pamlico Sound is a full body experience. They offer the services of a European boutique hotel, the amenities of a small resort, and the comfort and charm of a North Carolina coastal bed and breakfast. What this translates as is waterfront lodging ranging from queen-size rooms with private baths to luxurious king-size rooms with Italian tile baths, whirlpool tubs, and private decks.
The site features fine dining with indoor and outdoor sound front seating. They offer breakfast, room service and dinner. Entrees include lots of seafood dishes, prime rib, chicken and many more choices. The Inn includes a fourteen seat home theater, film and print libraries, in-room spa services, live acoustic music, a variety self-directed and supervised water sports, and a host of amenities. Add to all the above the views of the Pamlico Sound and, quite frankly, you are in heaven!
