From the mysterious disappearance of Roanoke settlers to the Wright brothers' first flight, the Outer Banks are historically important yes, but they are also postcard pretty with enough beach to share between summer visitors.
Injured and orphaned raptors are rehabilitated at the Carolina Raptor Center, a facility whose focus is education and environmental conservation. Take a self-guided tour along the Brian Patrick Memorial Trail associated with the center for a closer look at the varied birds of prey housed here, from Barn owls and Northern harriers to Red-tailed hawks and even a Golden eagle. On weekends there is a live raptor presentation and Wild Wings Educators are on hand to talk with visitors about resident birds.
We offer a compact version of Go-North-Carolina for mobile users, allowing you to access just the information you need on the road. Of course, you can still use the full version of Go-North-Carolina on your mobile device just as you can on your desktop.
