The Whalebone Welcome Center is right at the northern entrance to the Cape Hatteras National Seashore in Nags Head. There you will find information on all there is to see and do on the Outer Banks, with plenty of local newspapers and pamphlets to take with you. It is an excellent stop for planning your vacation activities, particularly as you head toward the southern villages. The center is operated by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau in partnership with the National Park Service and staffed with helpful, friendly locals. Closed January-February. There are other welcome centers located elsewhere along the beach including the Aycock Brown Welcome Center on the Bypass at MP 1, the Outer Banks Welcome Center on Roanoke Island in Manteo and the Hatteras Welcome Center at the U.S. Weather Bureau Station in the village of Hatteras.
