When that final frost gives way to shoots of green a fresh perspective can be found all along our Atlantic blue coastline and within our sheltered coves.

You'll find spring around every corner, down country lanes and village streets - just take a stroll and you'll see.

Spring is also the season of mystery - the mystery of Oak Island that is. For 170 years the most allusive treasure in the world has remained undiscovered. And now, with the History Channel's hit series "The Curse of Oak Island", the celebrated destination in Western Shore is playing host to fans from all around the globe. You can take boat tours around the island with Salty Dog Sea Tours ran by The Curse of Oak Island's own, Tony Sampson.

There's always something to enjoy in every season at the Oak Island Resort & Conference. Self Care Retreats, Easter Egg Hunts, Oak Island Explorer Expeditions, and More.

It's an exciting time throughout the entire municipality - where blossoms grow in anticipation of another beautiful bounty. Come May our Farmers Markets are opening for the season with a amazing assortment of fresh produce, baked goods, artistic creations and much more.
