With a mission of supporting the arts, sponsoring student scholarships and offering creative goods at affordable prices, Frisco Art Center is a worthwhile Hatteras Island stop.

See art demonstrations through the season, and view work from over 75 coastal, local, and North Carolina artists. The center actually houses three galleries – The Art Cottage, Sea Glass Gallery and a nostalgic Christmas shop. Wander from room to room to enjoy all three. The Christmas shop features a variety of ornaments all handcrafted by artists. There are no imports here. View hand painted ornaments, and pottery and blown glass selections for your tree!

Enjoy viewing wood, glass and metal sculptures, sea glass jewelry, ceramics and much more.  Imagine undulating glass jellyfish and glass statues of leaping marlin!

While on the island, take advantage of your proximity to the ocean. Breath in the gorgeous coastal environment and witness first hand what inspires many of the Outer Banks artists.

En-Route to the Outer Banks

En-Route to the Outer Banks

The drive to your Outer Banks destination can and should be part of the fun of heading to the beach, and with the wealth of roadside attractions, iconic destinations, and hidden gems, it’s easy to transform a long drive into an integral part of your getaway. So instead of making a beeline to the beach, take some time to check out the variety of activities and sites that are found along both the main routes and just slightly off the beaten path. Whether you come to the Outer Banks from the north, south, or west, you’ll find that there’s tons to discover along the way.
