We stopped at this Visitors Bureau before completing our trip to our hotel upon arrival. The gentleman at the Bureau was very helpful and informative. The grounds were very clean as well. Great place to stop and gather information before you begin your journey of the Outer Banks.

Just as we entered the area, we stopped here for some information and boy were we glad we did! Although I thought I had researched the area, the guide turned us on to a lot of new areas to explore. Please stop there, it will be worth it.

We had a great time talking to the individual on hand who was a fount of information, and we also got to use the bathroom which was very clean. A great place to stop anytime... More

This place had a wealth of books, brochures, maps, pamphlets, you name it... all free. Everything Outer Banks at your fingertips. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Also had some souvenirs for sale, but nothing to write home about.
