Jennette’s Pier in North Carolina
Enjoying Jennette’s Pier on a bike, scooter, or scoot coup is a fantastic way to explore one of the hot spots in Nags Head. Jeanette’s Pier is well known throughout North Carolina for the abundant fishing but the Pier also provides the opportunity for an educational adventure.
When Jennette’s pier first opened in 1939 it was 754 feet long and was a destination that drew fishermen from all parts of the state to visit. There were so many traveling fishermen that the cabins, originally built for the construction workers, were reconstructed as housing for traveling fishermen. Over the years, Jennette’s pier was battered by multiple hurricanes but it was hurricane Isabel which caused extensive damage requiring the pier to be repaired. Jennette’s pier had been purchased by the North Carolina Aquarium Society and they saw this as an opportunity to re-create not only a great fishing pier but also an educational one. The pier reopened in 2011 and rapidly drew not only fishermen but families and travelers as well.
