North Carolina Rentals are Popular for Seeing Blackbeard and Others

North Carolina rentals stretch from the very tip of the state down to the bottom along the Atlantic coast, covering everything from Cape Hatteras to Kitty Hawk, the site chosen in 1900 by Wilbur and Orville Wright as an ideal place for experimenting with aircraft. The area then was barely populated and its sand dunes were perfect for gliding and controlling their test aircraft, and today visitors to this area can see just how they did it. People taking advantage of North Carolina rentals also can come face to face with the story of a bearded pirate, tales of shipwrecks and a world famous lighthouse.

Perhaps the most famous of all residents of the Outer Banks, which takes up a considerable chunk of North Carolina rentals today, was Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard the pirate. He perished Nov. 22, 1718, against the Royal Navy in the Ocracoke Inlet, but prior to that time spent a great deal of time rousing and causing trouble in the Outer Banks area. Visitors staying at North Carolina rentals can enjoy their time learning about this historical figure and many other eras and landmarks in history too.

For instance, they can get up close to a number of shipwrecks, though they will reach nowhere near the 1,000 total that have been calculated in the Outer Banks region. Shipwrecks estimated at more than 600 ranged anywhere from private ships like Blackbeard’s to ships that dated both from the Civil War and the World War II eras. They also included modern seacraft and submarines, in addition to war vessels. Record keeping on these shipwrecks first began in 1526, and after amassing such a high number the region became known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Those paying for Corolla nc rentals, Hatteras Island rentals, Kitty Hawk rentals, Nags Head vacation rentals and pretty much any Outer Banks house rentals can get as close to the historical action as possible.

More than pirates and shipwrecks, visitors taking clear advantage of North Carolina rentals can stop at the majestic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, which was approved for construction in 1794 after the United States Congress realized the danger that shipping posed to those operating it in the Atlantic Ocean. So many ships perished that the lighthouse became necessary, and still stands today. With so much to explore, then, it makes perfect sense that North Carolina rentals are as popular as they are.
