Ashley Burrus, Housekeeping Supervisor - Avon Office
  • Favorite Hatteras Restaurant: Dinky’s Waterfront Restaurant, I always start with an appetizer of tuna tartare or fried goat cheese, followed by the best duck you’ve ever had or one of the amazing fresh fish specials!
  • Favorite Place to Get a Cocktail: A Moscow Mule from Breakwater, it’s the best place to watch the sunset and cool off with a drink on the porch!
  • Favorite Breakfast Spot: Orange Blossom Bakery, in the summer I love to grab some chocolate covered donut holes or a bagel burner sandwich, a hot cup of coffee and watch the surfers down Old Lighthouse Rd.
  • Favorite Beach: I enjoy driving out to Frisco Beach, ramp 49.  There is ample space for lounging in the sun, grilling out, and it’s a perfect spot to wade into the water without a major drop-off.
  • What You Love About Life on Hatteras: Our tight-knit, fun loving community is unlike any other community in the world and I am so proud to be a part of it.  I am always amazed by the support from our community members during an event such as a storm, you can always count on your neighbors for a helping hand when needed!

There are giant sand dunes that you can skim-board down, a huge ridge with tarzan-like vines that you can climb, and a rope swing that is the scariest and most exciting 30 seconds of your life!

Elaine Hooper, Marketing Department - Hatteras Office
  • Your favorite Hatteras restaurant: Tie between Lisa's Pizzeria in Rodanthe and La Fogata in Avon. Then again, the Deli at Island Convenience has the *best* burgers on Hatteras Island, no joke.
  • Favorite place to get a cocktail/mocktail: Good Winds Restaurant, over Kitty Hawk Kites in Waves. The whole bar menu is awesome!
  • Best kept secret about Hatteras October. The weather is still beautiful, the water is warm enough, the fishing is picking up, the stores and restaurants are still open... and nobody's here.
  • Anything you’d like to add? The one thing I wish everyone knew is that there really is no place quite like Hatteras Island. From the way the weather dictates day-to-day life, to the fiercely independent and yet kind-hearted spirit of we who call it home, to the unique pace at which everything happens, it is something you have to experience to understand.
