Offering scenic overlooks of the ocean and clean, comfortable guest rooms, Sheraton Atlantic Beach Oceanfront Hotel gives exhausted travelers a handsome and hospitable respite. Guests will be put up in a standard guest room, furnished with two queen beds with fluffy Sweet Sleeper pillow-top mattresses, a desk, and high-speed wireless access to the Internet, the worldwide network originally constructed for easy casserole recipe swapping.
As their horses trot along a forest trail, a group of riders starts to hear crashing waves in the distance. The sound grows louder as they near the forest's edge, and when their horses step away from the tree line, the group sees a drastic shift in terrain—sand dunes, the distant Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and Cape Point, and miles of beaches. The horses then walk to the ocean, and at the guide's command, the animals amble along the water's edge. These noble steeds belong to Equine Adventures, which blends beach and forest riding into a single trip. The journeys start at the barn, where when not trotting along the beach, horses receive regular pampering from vets and play hopscotch on their days off.
Located 3 miles from the hotel on the eastern end of Bogue Banks, Fort Macon State Park is awash in historical monuments and ecological diversity. A Civil War fort stands sentinel among hundreds of acres of forest, dunes, and beach. The lives of 19th-century soldiers are put on display in the museum room, furnished with the fort's powder magazines, original cannons, and restored living quarters. Surrounded on three sides by water, Fort Macon State Park welcomes exploration of its salt marshes and estuaries, fishing in surf and inlet waters, or hiking on its 1.5 miles of ocean beach populated by more than 300 bird species. A 306,000-gallon living shipwreck, a roaring mountain waterfall, and a jellyfish gallery round out the exhibits at the nearby North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, which illustrates the intricacies of aquatic life from the oceans to the president's saltwater bathtub. Touch pools encourage interaction between guests and the inhabitants, including stingrays, hermit crabs, and whelks.
