The Crystal Coast is one of those special places where history and modern culture combine. With nicknames like “Graveyard of the Atlantic” and a notorious stomping ground for the notorious Blackbeard, the beaches and towns that make up The Crystal Coast have seen their share of the shifting tides of history. History tours will treat you to glimpses inside the past with stops at historical buildings. You may even hear a ghost story or pirate legend if you’re lucky. If you’re into the more serene side of things, take an eco conch tour of Cape Lookout or cruise on one of the daily sightseeing excursions offered on The Coast’s pristine waters.
