    Ocracoke is a favorite day trip for the family. The beach is great, especially before and after the summer season when the tourists have left.

    Howard’s Pub and Jason’s Restaurant are both good, full-service restaurants. Jason’s is open all year while Howard’s Pub tends to close during the off-season. They are both within walking distance of the airport, though in the summer you may have to run to avoid the gauntlet of mosquitos that swarm the wetlands.

    The aircraft movement areas are decent enough. Dunes on either side of the runway tend to kill the wind in the last 20-30 feet, so expect a bit of wind shear when landing and departing on windy days.
