But that photo was not even taken in Cape Hatteras. That’s the Frisco Pier. Cape Hatteras doesn’t have a pier of their own. Never has. If you’re gonna represent, represent correctly! I do agree however about it’s No. 1 position…
That’s the photo used in the source article. We know where it was taken, but you should let them know. Also, not sure if they are ranking the actual “Cape” itself or the Cape Hatteras National Seashore as a whole, in which case the photo would still apply. Thanks.
