Fodor's Review

Pronounced "chik-a-ma-com-i-co," the restored 1911 lifesaving station is now a museum that tells the story of the brave people who manned 29 stations that once lined the Outer Banks. These were the precursors to today's Coast Guard, with staff who rescued people and animals from seacraft in distress. There's more here than meets the eye. Eight buildings on 7 acres include a cookhouse, bathhouse, stables, workshop, and the original 1874 lifesaving station. You'll see original equipment and tools, artifacts, and exhibits. Living-history reenactments are performed late May through August, and a 1907 cottage moved to the site portrays turn-of-the-19th-century life along the Outer Banks.
