Great stretch along Hwy 12. We’ve been to the original placement of the Hatteras Light as well as to the new location – quite an engineering feat to move it. We make this part of the Hwy 12 Lighthouse run – great day trip for families. Lots to do, kayak, swim, surf, fly kites, fish, hike, stroll, birdwatch, build sandcastles… If you are on the Outer Banks, I highly recommend this trip and visiting Cape Hatteras National Seashore!
