Frisco Real Estate

Frisco Real Estate

On Hatteras Island, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the tiny hamlet of Frisco lies between Buxton and Hatteras Village. The maritime forests surrounding Frisco give the community some of the unique character that distinguishes it from its neighboring villages. There are also many similarities. Like the others, Frisco is not incorporated. Also like the others, it had a different name before the U.S. Post Office changed it in 1898. The Post Office officials felt it would be confused with Trent Woods, a town in Craven County.

An early point of pride was a tiny airstrip at Frisco that General Billy Mitchell used in 1923 to demonstrate how bombing runs could be used to defend the nation. The compelling proof he offered was the impetus necessary to create the United States Air Force.

Today, the permanent residents of Frisco real estate number about 400 who welcome thousands of visitors each season to enjoy the wind, the surf and the magnificent beaches of Hatteras Island.

Frisco Parks and Recreation


Frisco real estate is famous for its fishing and water sports. Enjoy offshore sport fishing from the comfortable decks of a 57-foot boat on a Godspeed Charter. Bite Me Sportfishing Charters offer comfort and style as you seek enormous fish, like the prize winning 883-pound Blue Marlin caught in 2010. The Frisco Native American Museum is as beautiful as it is informative, with nature trails through the forest, a small stream and a quiet pond. The artefacts on display open a fascinating window into Frisco's past. Frisco Mini Golf and Go Karts is a great little place to go when you want to do something a little different.
