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.
Visitors can indulge in a little Latin flavor without the wait with a visit to the tri-villages’ newest destination for authentic Latin American food, Taqueria Las Ahumaderas. Located in the heart of Rodanthe and stationed next to the Highway 12 Amusements entertainment center, this colorful food truck serves up a delicious array of local favorites on a daily basis to the delight of visitors and locals alike.

Diners can opt to grab meat or fish tacos, quesadillas, tortas, burritos, and even enchiladas from the menu, and can enjoy their fare on the go – either at home or at the neighboring beach - for added convenience. Open daily, and offering a nice array of fresh eats at a price that is gentle on the wallet, Taqueria Las Ahumaderas is becoming a favorite area destination for delicious and super-fast casual fare.
