Heading for the Outer Banks on U.S.64 you come to the Alligator River. This was the location of the first of two ferries you had to take to get to Nags Head. Today a replica of the Hatteras Lighthouse is located where you use to catch the ferry. In 1960 they built the Lindsay C. Warren bridge across the 2.8 mile wide river. This was the beginning of the end to what use to be an adventure to get to the Outer Banks. Instead of the Outer Banks being a pristine wilderness, massive development began.
