The Outer Banks, Hatteras, NC

As we made our way up and down the road on Hatteras Island, this charming bright-colored art gallery drew me like a bee to honey. We stopped in, and Hatteras Art Indian Town Gallery has a great assortment of local art and hand-made items with a price range for all budgets. Learn more about their artists and artisans at: http://www.indiantowngallery.com/ If you need a bit of pampering, you can get a massage next door!

Learn more about it’s history on the National Park website: http://www.nps.gov/caha/historyculture/cape-hatteras-light-station.htm

There is a beach access at the park and it looks like there is pretty good surf judging by the number of surfers that were there when we visited.
