Hatteras & Ocracoke Area Features

What's New?

On the quiet islands of Hatteras and Ocracoke, not much changes—and that contributes to the beauty of the area. While other beach towns may have busy streets and throngs of people, the small town feel of the lower Outer Banks remains intact. And though it’s not much, some things do change a little bit… but only for the better!

Oregon Inlet Bridge Construction
It’s one of the most talked about projects on the Outer Banks—the construction of a new bridge over the Oregon Inlet. The existing bridge, dedicated in 1963 and named after Congressman Herbert C. Bonner, has been badly damaged over the years, particularly in 1990 when a barge destroyed a large segment during a severe storm. In 2013, the Bonner Bridge was temporarily closed to traffic, and NC12 travelers had to take ferries between Bodie Island and Hatteras. Fortunately, ground broke on March 8, 2016 for the construction of a new replacement bridge. According to the NC Department of Transportation, the bridge will cost approximately $246 million and will officially open in the fall of 2018. Then, the 2.7-mile drive over the Oregon Inlet should be a more efficient journey for visitors and locals.

Deepwater Theater
For a hilarious and insightful evening, visit Deepwater Theater on Wednesdays to see “Dingbatter’s Guide to Ocracoke,” a new comedy-skit about local life. The performers will have you rolling with laughter as they present answers to pressing Ocracoke-related questions including “How do you get to name a hurricane?” and “What does it take to ankle-band mosquitoes?” This family-friendly production will leave you wanting to know more about Ocracoke Island and its residents.
