We weren't sure what we were getting into when we paid $2 each to walk on a pier ............ but both my daughter and I agreed that it was well worth the money by the time we were finished! Beautiful views from all stops along the way and especially at the very end of the pier. The water was so... More

Seeing the stingrays during the day and then again in the evening was really cool! It was nice during the day but really fun at night. After walking on the pier at about 9pm and looking at the stingrays and schools of fish, the kids walked on the beach with their flashlights (OK, phone light) and chased crabs. We haven't... More

Get there early. They open at 5am, at least during peak season. We rented poles and bought bait for us and our kids. Less expensive than a charter but we didn't have any luck catching anything. We still had a good time! Lots of sunscreen. We all liberally applied and still got burnt. It's nice that they have everything set... More

My nephew's wedding was in the event center on the pier. It was a wonderful place and very convenient.

Spent an afternoon on the beach and walking on the pier. Then went upstairs and watched a weather line roll in and then out. Fun sitting on the very large porch upstairs just watching the world go by.

WE were just walking the beach at Nag's Head when we noticed an extremely long pier with what looked like a house located just as the pier began, so of course needed to investigate. It turned out to be a pier that replaced one that was taken during one of the hurricanes in the past few years, and the house... More

Yes it's beautiful but really you have to pay to go on the dock? I thought that was silly considering there are so many others you can go on for free

Definitely make it a point to stop here on your trip. The pier is nice and long and provides some great views of the ocean. Jeannette's pier is also involved in research on sea life. There are some great kiosks in the inside of the facility, so you can take a look and see what lives underneath the pier. You... More
