Ocracoke's long history has some interesting highlights, but none of the local legends and legacies are as far-reaching or as popular as the island's local pirates. As the temporary home to a crew of notorious buccaneers, including Blackbeard himself, Ocracoke is the destination of choice for pirate lovers who want to explore the stomping grounds of the island's most notorious residents.
Visitors can cool off after a long walk through the village with a stop at The Slushy Stand, which is one of Ocracoke Island’s favorite destinations for frozen treats and refreshing drinks of all varieties. Featuring a wide array of ice creams, slushies, coffee drinks, and even a selection of breakfast items, The Slushy Stand is the perfect destination to refuel before or after an active Ocracoke Island adventure.
The Slushy Stand has been a fixture on the Ocracoke Island landscape since 1974, and today, the ice cream and frozen dessert shop has a wonderfully central location in the heart of Ocracoke Island, complete with a shaded porch so that customers can relax and enjoy their treats to the fullest. Visitors can also find a selection of rental bikes at The Slushy Stand to easily cruise through the village, and the shop offers frozen treats as well as a hefty array of coffee drinks, bagels, and muffins for an easy meal or snack on the go. With a tasty and ever-changing selection of ice cream flavors, drinks, and baked goods, everyone will find something to indulge in with every visit to this traditional and longtime favorite Ocracoke island destination.
