Saddle Up to a hearty plate of Eastern North Carolina's favorite fare at the annual Oink N' Oyster Roast. Held at the Longboards Island Grill in Kitty Hawk, and sponsored by the First Flight Rotary Club, this annual feast is a delicious way to support a range of non-profit organizations while filling an amorous appetite for local seafood. There will be a full pig, (cooked for hours on a smoker), platters of fresh oysters, and plenty of side dishes including hush puppies, slaw, and other southern favorites, so all a patron has to do is pull up a seat, pour an accompanying brew, and enjoy. Tickets can be purchased online. Any tickets purchased online can be picked up at the event's check-in desk. Oink & Oyster Roast T-Shirts and Aprons will also be available for sale, (both online and at the event itself.) A tasty annual event that's always a crowd pleaser, the Oink & Oyster Roast is a popular and filling way for OBX locals and visitors alike to simply relax pig out for a very good cause.

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, with its black and white candy-cane stripes, is one of the most famous and recognizable lighthouses in the world. Protecting one of the most treacherous stretches of the Outer Banks, with a beam of light that spans 20 miles into the ocean, the lighthouse is also the world's tallest brick lighthouse at a staggering 208' ft. tall.
