"Popularity isn't such a good thing..." Hatteras Island Warnings Or Dangers Tip by PA2AKgirl

Hatteras Island Warnings and Dangers: 3 reviews and 4 photos


A LOT more people are going down to Hatteras for their summer vacations...many more than when we first started going and even 2 years ago. Because of this, the roads are more congested, the lines are always outrageous and the wait for the ferry to Ocracoke Island is irritating. The big vehicles and RVs minimize the efficiency of the ferry. What really gets me is the complete disregard for the dunes, the beach and other people. Everyone seems to think that this is "their" vacation and therefore, no one and nothing else matters. Cars stopped in the middle of the road, people walking over the fences to get their spot on the beach and feeding the wildlife.

I know these things aren't the acts of people reading this tip, most likely but you'll see it. Hatteras has always been a part of my life and seeing people thoughtlessly here breaks my heart.
