Welcome to one of the most beautiful coastal areas in the United States. Stretching from the North at the Outer Banks through Cape Hatteras and Ocracoke Island, to Cape Lookout and the National Seashore, to the Crystal Coast with the Historic town of Beaufort and the fishing center of Morehead City, to Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington in the South. Blackbeard lived, pillaged, and died in these parts. With the discovery of an ancient shipwreck in the Beaufort Inlet in 1996, it is becoming clearer that his ship, The Queen Anne's Revenge has been discovered. Here you can read about the Pirate, his legend, his ship, and the shipwreck recovery efforts.
