Great walking tour but seemed more ghost stories than history. We loved it but would have liked to hear more about the town and were surprised that Blackbeard wasn't even mentioned. Regardless, we would book again.

We had an incredible day cruising up all the little roads in Ocracoke. Don't miss the historical section. Don't let the dirt road fool you, great houses and a wonderful store to meander through.
