It’s Fan Photo Friday!

Thank you to Charles B. Richardson for submitting this beautiful rainbow over Salvo on Hatteras Island accompanied by a very touching story. How could we choose another photo over this one?

“For a number of years our entire family has vacationed at OBX. The picture shown here is the first year after my Mother-in-Law Kathy passed away. She loved rainbows and our first day there we got a double rainbow. It showed us that even though she wasn’t with us that year, she really was.” – Charles B. Richardson

US Flag at Cape Hatteras Lighthouse by Charles B. Richardson


We can’t think of a more iconic image to represent summer in America than this picture submitted by Charles B. Richardson. The US flag waves proudly in front of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, also known as “America’s Lighthouse”. The lighthouse opens for climbing on April 20th. Make plans to stop by this main attraction while you’re on the island.

Driving on the beach with a 4-wheel drive off-road vehicle (ORV) is one of the very unique aspects of the Cape Hatteras National Recreational Seashore. Effective March 15, the National Park Service is requiring the purchase of permits to drive on the beach. For information on the permit costs and related park service rules, visit Cape Hatteras Beach Driving Permits.

A Bill has been introduced that would help beach access. If driving on the beach is important to you, YOU can help preserve beach access.

Even on a stormy day, the beauty of Hatteras Island is breathtaking. Check out our rainy day activities for fun things to do if it rains. With dark clouds over a deep blue ocean and a lightning show across the sky, a rainy day on a beach vacation beats any day at work.
