ATLANTIC REALTY CHECK IN - Posted By: Banks68 on 8/2/2021
We are renting a week in October in Old Nags Head Place :) Renting through Atlantic Realty and so far it’s been a positive experience. We could have gotten early check-in for (if I remember correctly) an extra &200 - which we declined. Just wondering if anyone has had an experience of them letting you in early if the house is ready. Should I let them know if we get there before the 4pm official... [Read Full Post]

MIDGETTE CHECK IN PROCESS - Posted By: SwampDuck on 8/2/2021
Well, it has been a long time since we rented a cottage. Now that the kid is on her own it is time again. Rented through Midgette for next year in Buxton. I could call the office and get this information but then I would not be able to share my excitement about booking for 05/22 - 05/29 next year. Nice little beach box with a fenced yard for the furry kids. What is the check in / out process ... [Read Full Post]

RADIO HATTERAS - Posted By: Bentmtn on 8/2/2021
Just a tip for those of you that may not know, but take a moment when you are down here and tune into 101.5 FM radio hatteras station. Best music ever! No commercials...totally non profit and runs on donations. Hubby and I give to this station. We grew up in the 70's and that music is played as well as other decades...a lot of 60s. Our kids are 29 and 34 and they grew up with us playing ... [Read Full Post]

RAMP 34 IN AVON - Posted By: Bella on 8/2/2021
Does Ramp 34 ever open up for beach driving? That would be real nice if staying north end of Avon.

HOUSECLEANERS TIP - Posted By: Incommunicado on 8/2/2021

BLUE MOON BEACH GRILL - Back to the Blue Moon
My Better Half and I stopped for lunch on a windy, overcast day. The remodeling they've done since we were last there (created a "waiting bar", added a game room, and outdoor dining) were welcome I recall the large crowds inside and outside while waiting for a table before). Even though it was at lunch, there was a small wait... we saw that as a good thing. Sat at the bar in the main area and had... [Read Full Review]

MAKO MIKES, INC. - Mediocre At Best
We recently ate here for the first time and we won't be back. The service was excellent, so I kinda feel sorry for the servers. We both got shrimp that was utterly tasteless and kind of mushy. Frozen shrimp can be done better. Fries were OK, iced tea was godawful.

DAJIO - Very nice restaurant
I had a fish sandwich and my wife had Pesto Pasta, couldn't have been better. The staff was great also. We'll be back for sure

I had the Mahi Tacos and they were great. Sort of like a small grilled filet in each one. Spicey mayo like sauce was killer. Outside dinning is a plus

MULLIGANS INC. - Sit up in the Tiki Bar
Sat up on the roof Tiki bar and had burgers. They were great and so was the service even though they were pretty busy.

Th Wright Memorial Bridge webcam on 158 in Kitty Hawk. Facing West, you can see the traffic entering the Outer Banks on this NCDOT webcam. The image is updated every minute.

A great streaming webcam from Corolla Light in the northern part of the Outer Banks. This is a full motion video feed with a very clear picture of the beach and the surf.

Nice webcam view of the beach and pool deck from the Hilton Head Beach & Tennis Resort on the north end of HHI. It may take a few seconds to load, but it is worth the wait for the clear view of the beach and ocean. This webcam is a great way to see the beach on Hilton Head Island when you can't be there in person.
