Food and Hiking in Coastal DE and NC in March.

Traveling during March to North Carolina, Crystal Coast/Southern Outer Banks region, from NYC metro area. Instead of inland, though, we're taking the coastal route (Rts 13/17 south of Philly) with an overnight stay in Delaware. Looking for non-chain restaurants, hiking, history/science, and the cheaper end of antiquing.

We're in the off-season and we don't seem to quite be in the tourism pamphlet demographic anyway (approx age 30, couple without kids, I get bored on the beach in the summer.) Lodging is set. We are taking two days to drive down and back, to be more leisurely, and we're staying less than a week.
Hiking preferences are for smaller hikes or high geocache-density areas, over Nat'l Parks or the like. One minor, but important for coastal areas dietary restriction: I eat fish but not shellfish. I'm not sure if this region is South enough to get good Southern food, but we're totally down with that, as well as recommended local brewery type places.
