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.
Located on the edge of the Hatteras / Ocracoke ferry docks, The Wreck is a popular Hatteras village spot for a quick bite before the ferry ride, a casual meal after an Ocracoke exploration, or just an evening out with an incredible view. Featuring a well-rounded menu as well as a wide range of drinks and seasonal live music, The Wreck is a fine destination to sit back, relax, and enjoy the relaxed pace of Hatteras Island living.
The Wreck’s menu has a little something for everyone, with a wide range of Paninis and sandwiches, a dose of Mexican food in the form of quesadillas and nachos, and even fun snack fare and appetizers like big pretzels, sausage cheese dip, and “pizza” sandwiches. In addition to the tempting fare that’s perfect after a long day at the beach, The Wreck also has a variety of beers and wine, which includes a number of favorite brews on draft. The restaurant also becomes a bit of social hub in the summer months, with live music on the deck overlooking the water. With a great locale that borders the ferry docks and the Pamlico Sound, The Wreck is a fine destination for everything from an easy lunch, to a Happy Hour sunset over the water.
