Harkers Island on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina has beaches, shopping and cultural history, not to mention boats and great fishing. Harkers Island has some of the most incredible views of the Cape Lookout Lighthouse, two museums and a tranquil, residential atmosphere.
The Core Sound Waterfowl and History Museum is where you will discover displays and documented history about the traditions of boat-building, fishing and decoy carving in the community. The Cape Lookout National Seashore Visitor Center is another stop-in to discover what is going on in the area.
You can rent a boat and take off for some solo fishing or go with a chartered boat for guidance. Check for events going on throughout the year, there are fun fishing related tournaments and more.
Summer makes for a lovely time in this part of North Carolina
