Going to be in Nags Head in September. Family members age ranges from 17 months to 69 years old.

Anyone local know of some things to do in the area? Good hiking? At the moment our whole trip will be sitting on the beach.

    I was down in hatteras a few weeks ago, been going there semi-annually since i was a kid

    If you're down with a bit of a drive, ocacroke can be a neat place to visit and get a good burger, look at the graves of british soldiers on the island, and check out the nature reserve. Also wild ponies. You take a ferry out there and there's dolphins and stuff sometimes, it's neat

    On the larger island with nags head/hatteras/buxton/frisco etc there's the lighthouse to go to, the Museum of the Graveyard of the Atlantic which I personally thought was cool. I can't stress enough to go to the Orange Blossom bakery in buxton early in the morning and getting some of everything, it's literally the best sausage biscuits/donuts/fritters i've ever had anywhere. Seriously go there, you won't regret it

    If you're into other stuff there's kayak rentals and bikes and lots of nature trails


    look how cheap that is and ye gods it's great

    I found the Wright Bros. aviation museum to be quite enjoyable during my stay in the area.

    i don't know of any hiking, since it's beach area, the only hills you see are dunes. There are tons of watersports, you can take hanggliding lessons, skydiving, glider rides. unfortunately, it's become a VERY touristy area, so there is very little free stuff.
