Taking Life Easy

By Lexi Holian

Sometimes the best thing to do on vacation is not much at all. A leisurely drive with the windows down, salty breeze blowing and the sound of waves hitting the shoreline is exactly what vacation is all about, especially when you’re behind the wheel of a vintage Volkswagen buggy.

Island Cruisers has 4WDs for beach driving, 2WDs that are great for those staying in motorhomes, Volkswagen buggies and golf carts too. They have also acquired several antique cars if you want some classic style.

Pick up your wheels on Hatteras Island or have them delivered to you, even to the local airports with enough notice. Owners Valerie and Eric Stump will make sure you feel comfortable in your vehicle of choice. 

Island Cruisers is open from mid-May through September, Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Call ahead for Saturdays, Sundays and off-season rentals.
