  • If you are heading to the Outer Banks, be prepared for the lack of speed limit signs on Highway 64 in this county. It's as if they purposely do this so that highway patrol will pull you over. They...  more »
  • This is a good place to stop and rest on the way to the wildlife refuges. It has a boardwalk trail that is worth doing even though it's a bit long in the tooth. But it is safe.  more »
  • Very friendly center. The staff shared much about the local opportunities. We stayed there longer than we had planned. Would stop again. To say hello and perhaps see a little.more.of this area. I would stop here to plan a local stay well.
  • We stopped by this welcome center on the way back from the Outer Banks to have a break from travels, to use the restrooms, and check on some information about the Laurel Point Lighthouse which was near this area and where in the 1880s my wife's gg grandfather was a keeper of the light and in his free time made furniture, one piece (a wardrobe) which we have seen. When I mentioned the lighthouse and that my name was Cox one of the ladies there (Joyce or Janice I think) was quite knowledgeable about it and asked if I was related to Benj. Cox who was a keeper of the light there about the turn of the century------about 15-20 years after my wife's ancestor was there. It was very interesting to talk with her about it and I was going to send her copies of information I had so she would have more info on the earlier days of the lighthouse and its keepers. Still haven't gotten it to her yet as I seem to only get to work on it in spurts the last of which was Fall 2014. She even gave me copies of some info she had there on Ben Cox at the lighthouse which I found very interesting. Hopefully after tax time this year I will be able to spurt again and maybe get her data copied and compiled. Very nice place they have there!
