Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and Wright Brothers National Memorial have announced several new ways for visitors to digitally connect with their national park sites.
The recently released National Park Service (NPS) mobile app, available for free download in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store, gives the public up-to-date information about all 423 national parks in one easy-to-use app.
Included in the NPS mobile app are new audio tours available for Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and Wright Brothers National Memorial, as well as up-to-date information on ranger-guided interpretive programs for the upcoming summer season.
A virtual tour of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse also is now available that allows visitors both onsite and across the world to virtually experience a climb of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and to explore 360-degree views from the lighthouse. The tour features historic images and educational information, too.
In partnership with Outer Banks Forever, a webcam was recently placed on the top of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, allowing visitors to check out the live view and observe weather and beach conditions.
