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 off-season/shoulder season activity: Fall sunset chasing and late-night star gazing
Best kept secret about Hatteras: The trails in the Buxton Woods. There are all sorts of things back there that you can’t imagine from an ordinary stroll down the beaten path. 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!

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.

Favorite Hatteras Restaurant: My favorite restaurant on Hatteras Island is Dinky's Restaurant. Great Steaks and Seafood and the service is always great!
Favorite Place for a Cocktail: If you are looking for a place to kick back and relax with some comfort food or just some spiced shrimp and a cocktail or beer, Pop's in Buxton is the place for you. I love the easy going atmosphere with good food and a dry martini.
Favorite Off Seaon Activity: In the off-season there is almost always a breathtaking sunset and most nights, when you look up, the sky is so clear that the stars look like diamonds in the sky
Favorite Breakfast Spot: Get a huge plateful of the best waffles, pancakes, omelet or egg dishes and more at the ACC Cafe in Rodanthe. You'll love every bite, the service is great and you may have a hard time eating all that great food.
Favorite Beach: For the best chance for a quiet time on one of the most beautiful beaches in the USA, go to the Frisco Beach. Less traveled and long stretches of beach make it a relaxing place to swim, sunbathe or fish.
Best place to view a sunset: The best sunset can be seen at the Canadian Hole, a stretch of beach between Avon and Buxton.

Favorite Hatteras Restaurant: Hatteras Sol. They have a deliciously innovative menu with fresh, local seafood and a specials board that is always unique.
Favorite Place for a Cocktail: Hatteras Sol is a homerun because in addition to great food, they also have good beer on tap if you want to have a drink while watching one Hatteras Island’s infamous sunsets, a moment I love to share with my wife, Liz.
Favorite Off Season Activity: Hatteras Island is one of the best surf breaks on the East Coast and fall/winter is when we get the best waves. I am always more than happy to get out in the water and have some fun catching waves.
What You Love About Life on Hatteras: I love that I get to share my life with my family and friends in such a beautiful and unique place. I can’t imagine a better place to raise my family.
