We walked down to Jennette's Pier, to walk out on the Pier. It cost $4 bucks to access the pier. The wind was whipping us around. It was angry because of the hurricanes. But it was still beautiful to experience.

We visit the Outer Banks every year. And every year we all want to go to Jennette's Pier. You can fish or simply sit back and watch. We were there during hurricane Jose. It was amazing!!!

Jennette's Pier is always a nice place to visit while in the Outerbanks. The pier has a gift shop as well as a fishing center. They also have great displays and clean restrooms.

Very interesting displays, especially about the history of the pier. Good education displays for children. Everyone here focused on keeping the turtles safe. Lots of information on how to help.

A long pier with quite a history! Educational programs for children and adults; add you name to the pier, helps the Educational programs;buy a rod/reel/bait while there if you want to fish.
