Outer Banks Piers – Jennette’s Pier

things-to-do-JennettesPierHurricane Isabel devastated Jennette's Pier in 2003, but NC Aquariums led rebuilding it as an all-concrete, 1,000' long showpiece. On May 22, 2009, seventy years to the day from its first construction, then Governor Beverly Perdue led the 'sand breaking' dedication of this $25 million dollar renovation you can enjoy today. Besides pier fishing and sightseeing you can experience: fishing tournaments/programs, summer day camps, day/night programs, private fishing lessons, volleyball camps & much more. Three large wind turbines plus an extensive water recovery system serve as responsible, educational models for a sustainable future.

Owens Restaurant

Owens RestaurantStarting as a 24 seat cafe in 1946, Owens has become the 'benchmark' evening dinner restaurant by which all others are measured locally … at all levels, whether it's quality and freshness of food, its preparation/presentation or the attentiveness with which it's served. Perhaps operation by the same family for over 65 years has something to do with it? Priced accordingly, you probably owe it to your family to include at least one trip here as part of your Outer Banks vacation tradition. Open nightly for dinner 5pm-9pm.
