Guidebook for Shore Break

Things you gotta see!
If you're tired of the beach and want a change of scenery, try one of these:
Sunset is the best time to go. You can watch the sun set over the Roanoke Sound. Bring the boogie boards and "surf" down the dunes. Or go to the south side and jump off the steep slopes. Also, when the beach is too cold or windy, or if you have little ones, there is a nice soundside beach down Soundside road, just south of the park. Parking, shower, and port-a-potties are available.

Just over the Oregon Inlet bridge is the prettiest stretch of wild beach in the area. You can park at the visitor center a few miles down and walk the wildlife trail and the beach. Or if you really want to be on your own, there are some places you can park on the side of the road and walk over the dunes. Just be careful to not get stuck in the sand!

This is a unique ecological area in the maritime forest. There are easy and moderate walking/hiking trails. Some go by ponds and ancient dunes, some lead to the sound. All are pretty. Great for the off season. Bring bug spray.

See where the Wright Brothers took their first flight. Go through the museum, Climb up to the monument (great views!), then go around the back of the monument and let the kids climb on the Wright glider replica!

Here are all of our favorite places to eat or drink close by.
The most awesome fro-yo place on Earth! So close, you could walk. 1/4 mile to the south on the beach road. Tip: Their busiest time is between 7:30 and 9:30pm.

Forbes is THE best place for candy, fudge, souvenirs. Try to avoid the other big, flashy candy place (rip-off warning)! Forbes is locally owned and classy.

Miller's waterfront is a great place if you want a classy, local place for seafood. They are right on the sound in Nags Head with great sunset views and reasonable prices. Go before 5:30 to avoid the wait. If you do have to wait, they have a bar and pier to enjoy.

These guys sing to you while they serve up delicious ice cream. And they are really good! I think they only sing in the evenings. Again, earlier is better if you want to avoid a long line.

This is our favorite pizza place. Their seating is limited, though, so take-away or delivery is probably the way to go. We also really like New York Pizza Pub, which has LOTS of seating and a great menu, and Dare Devils Pizza. Peace of the Pie is new and I haven't tried it, yet.

This is a really well done musical play about the first settlers on Roanoke island. It is the longest running outdoor drama in the country for a reason. Best to buy tickets ahead of time. The play does have gunshots and real fire, and it runs late, so it may not be best for young children. Though age 7 or 8 and up will love it! There are also some short walking trails there if you want to go early or go back some other time.

Συμβουλές για την πόλη

Τρόποι μεταφοράς
Go out to eat EARLY!
Restaurants in peak season can have hour long waits or longer. We suggest going out for lunch at 11am and dinner around 4:30 or 5pm. Few places take reservations. The bonus is that many places offer early bird discounts if you get there before 5! Check the little yellow Go Guides for coupons.

Best beach time
We find that the most enjoyable time on the beach is in the later afternoon and evening. The air is cooling down and the sun isn't in your face. That said, it often rains mid to late afternoon in the summer.
Τρόποι μεταφοράς
Take the beach road (hwy 12)
In the peak season, we find that the beach road is faster and safer than the bypass (hwy 158/ Croatan hwy), with all of its traffic and stop lights.

Hunting for ghost crabs
Grab a flashlight, a net (or not) and a bucket and head out to the beach at night. You'll see the white "ghost crabs" skittering all over the place. Try to catch them! Just don't keep them in your bucket for too long. They need to be free.

Need boogie boards?
We keep 4 boogie boards just for our guests. Let us know if you'd like to borrow some and we will put them on the porch for you.

Staying safe at the beach
The ocean here can be rough at times. Read up on and stay away from rip currents. Unless you are an excellent swimmer, we recommend swimming near a life guard. They are posted from Memorial day to Labor day. We don't want to scare you, but we do want you to be safe!

Know the road names
We only have 2 main roads here, but they go by many names. Hwy 12 is also called the Beach Road or Virginia Dare Trail. You guessed it, it runs along the beach! Hwy 158 is also called the Bypass or Croatan Hwy. It runs parallel to the beach road.

Take the little ones to Jockey's Ridge sound access
Sometimes the ocean is just too much for little ones. If so, you can take them to the sound access behind Jockey's Ridge. There is a nice sandy beach and the water is shallow and warm. Go south just past Jockey's Ridge and turn Right onto Soundside Rd. Go to the end and you'll see the parking lot on the right. They have an outdoor shower and port-a-potties.
