Frisco is a small unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) on the barrier island of Hatteras Island, between the villages of Buxton and Hatteras. It is located in Dare County, North Carolina, United States, and was previously named "Trent", or "Trent Woods", but received a new name with the coming of the post office in 1898. Most of the land is taken by houses available for rental during the summer months, and as such the community's population varies seasonally. As of the 2010 census, the permanent population of the community was 200. North Carolina Highway 12 serves as the primary road in Frisco and connects the community to others on the island.

We stayed in Frisco and loved this beach. Great waves, easy parking and access to the beach itself, bathroom and shower as well. Plenty of space to roam on the beach.

Horseback riding on the beach. Ride through the Buxton Maritime forest out to the pristine beaches of Hatteras Island. We offer 2 hour guided horse tours daily. Reservations are required and are available online as well as by phone.Open year round. Join us for a ride and see the island from a different perspective. All levels of riders accommodated and appreciated.
Of the many trail rides we’ve experienced, this one ranks as one of the best! Gorgeous views, knowledgeable, friendly, and organized staff, as well as happy and well-taken care of horses. We loved our ride led by Marlee! Marlee was a wonderful guide with great knowledge about horses and the surrounding area and customized the ride to ensure we had a great time. We tremendously appreciate how the horses enjoy their job and are treated very humanely. They found perfect horses for our skill level and provided a safe Covid-19 protocol. 10/10 would recommend!

Frisco Native American Museum houses exhibits with thousands of artifacts from Native cultures across the country and include a special gallery, dedicated to the local tribes (Hatterask, Croatoan, Roanoac) and features many items that were found locally on the Outer Banks. The museum is the life work of Carl Bornfriend. He and his wife Joyce worked together to create this special and friendly 501(c)(3) museum whose goal is to honor native people and expand communication between tribes and non-natives. Carl and Joyce both come from education backgrounds and those ideals have forged a distinctive place. Carl taught among the Delaware and Hopi, sharing his love of nature and learning with anyone who would listen. Joyce is a former teacher, principal, and school board member. Combining Carl's spontaneity and creativity with Joyce's warmth and organizational skills has produced a place of learning and respect.
Educational visit while down in December. They have a nice variety of artifacts and information. Amber is super nice and very knowledgeable. We have passed by so many times, glad we finally stopped and will be back during our next vacation.
