Come and experience what makes Ocracoke Island so special. Rich in history with great restaurants and great shopping. Nothing but family owned businesses in Ocracoke so no chains here. Mode of transportation is best by bike, golf cart or simply walking. Most of Ocracoke Island consists of Cape Hatteras National Seashore. You will not see any beachfront homes here, only wide open beautiful beaches where shelling is great and recreational opportunities abound.
Experience a Run Fest weekend and have a great vacation at the same time. SEE YOU IN APRIL !!
