Visitors to Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands will simultaneously be visiting the gorgeous Cape Hatteras National Seashore. One of the largest preserved parcels of the Outer Banks, the National Seashore stretches across 70 miles of shoreline, encompassing seven villages on Hatteras Island, and providing visitors with miles of undisturbed, scenic beaches as well as some of the prettiest natural drives on the East Coast.
Have some fun here pretending to go back in time --- and get it photographed! Formerly Miss Kitty’s Old Time Photos, there’s a new name, and new owners Cindi and Jeff Harrell. Visitors love to pose in front of the staged bar as saloon girls and rough-and-tough cowboys brandishing pistols. Other favorites are posing as a nasty pirate or Southern belle. It’s a fun thing to do with friends or family or even your dog, and it makes a souvenir that you’ll actually keep forever. Even locals love to come in to get nostalgia photos done for Mother’s Day or anniversaries, and locals get a local discount. A costume choice in summer 2013: wearing an old-time bathing suit and posing in front of an authentic Nags Head beach scene. In addition to its regular open months, the store opens for a week around Thanksgiving, and is available year-round by appointment.
