A USA Today travel feature has listed the Cape Hatteras National Seashore as one of the 10 Great National Parks That Will Engage Your Kids . Author Trefoni Rizzi of Teddy’s Travels: America’s National Parks said; “This park is filled with history of pirates, shipwrecks and lighthouses. ..Kids will love the ferry ride from Hatteras Island to Ocracoke, and best of all, it’s free.”
In 2007, Cape Hatteras also made headlines when “Dr. Beach”, respected beach expert Dr. Stephen Leatherman, came out with his 2008 “Best Beach in America” list. Buxton Beach in Cape Hatteras, NC was named #8. The Outer Banks has made this list 2 years running. Ocracoke Island’s Lifeguarded Beach was #1 on Dr. Beach’s 2007 list.
We are so excited about having another one of our beaches on the Outer Banks make the Dr. Beach list of Best Beaches….It’s a great honor to be included in such a prestigious list. Kudos to the village of Buxton,” says Carolyn McCormick, Managing Director of the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.Cape Hatteras Named #5 Best Beach in America!
