Rodanthe

(4.4/5 based on 400+ reviews for 3 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, adventure
–Rodanthe is an unincorporated community located in Dare County, North Carolina, on Hatteras Island, part of North Carolina's Outer Banks. Rodanthe, along with Waves and Salvo, are part of the settlement of Chicamacomico. Rodanthe includes the original Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station, decommissioned in 1954, but now a museum.Rodanthe is served by North Carolina Highway 12 which runs north/south through town. The Chicamacomico area is bordered to the north by Pea Island NWR and to the south by Cape Hatteras NS, a situation which limits potential growth. The town is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the East and the Pamlico Sound to the West.Rodanthe is the easternmost point of North Carolina. It is famous for its observation of "Old Christmas" on January 6, formerly Christmas, December 25, by the Julian Calendar, a custom held over from the original English settlers who still used the "Old Style" calendar. A mythical beast, "Old Buck"—possibly related to Belsnikel or Krampus who are Companions of Saint Nicholas in Central European Christmas festivities—is said to appear at the celebration.
