  • Good Choice

    "Our family of 8 plus a baby had the pleasure of spending a week here. It was our first visit to the Outer Banks, so we weren't sure of which location to choose. We were so happy with our choice! This home was clean, roomy, and provided us with all we needed for a fun week. There are bedrooms on every floor, providing everyone a little space of their own. The kitchen was well equipped (minus measuring cups and spoons). It was a short walk to the beach right across the street. The pool was great, and we liked that there were so many chairs, chaises, and tables around the pool for relaxing. There were many rockers on the upper deck for sitting at night or enjoying your cup of coffee in the morning watching the ocean. There were 6 flat screen TV's, but not one of them was turned on all week! We liked Southern Shores as it was a little less congested, the houses are a little more spread out, and still a very short drive to all the restaurants. The only negative of this property, was the mattresses in 2 of the bedrooms really need upgraded and weren't very comfortable. We definitely would consider this property again, but maybe 2 weeks next time!"

  • It's a party

    "The pool, the spa, the pool side bar. The kitchen, the bathrooms, the space to veg out. The fun, the sun, the beach isn't far. You'll love it here, I have no doubt. This place is awesome. My adult friends and family needed a getaway. So we chose a house with most all master suites. We made amazing dinners in the large kitchen as well as on the grill by the pool. Not a single person was dissapointed. We loved it so much that we are putting the money where our mouths are and have already booked this place again for next year."

  • First time to visit the OBX

    "Our family had a blast at the beach! This home is delightful! It is perfect for families of all stages, and friends that come along thoroughly enjoyed the home as well. The home is spacious, clean, well organized, and the fully stocked kitchen made it easy to eat in to save money."

Northern Coast & Outer Banks Travel Tips

The Outer Banks is a glorious stretch - 200 miles, to be exact - of barriers islands and peninsulas along the North Carolina coast. Though it boasts magnificent beaches, there’s plenty to do here year-round.

What to Do

The options are nearly endless in the Outer Banks.

- Take a hike at the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site on the northern end of Roanoke Island and visit the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens - a memorial to the first colonists.

- Immerse yourself in the history of flight at the Wright Brothers National Memorial and Museum in Kill Devil Hills, just south of Kitty Hawk.

- Visit the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island to feed stingrays, pet an alligator, learn about sea turtle rescues and be wowed by the largest group of captive sharks in North Carolina.

- Go Kayaking or take stand up paddleboarding lessons in Kitty Hawk Bay from Kitty Hawk Kites or Kitty Hawk Surf Company.

- Do something extreme at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. There are awesome sand dunes here - if you know how to sand-board, get a permit and come here between October 1 and March 31. You can also take hang-gliding lessons from Kitty Hawk Kites and soar over Jockey’s Ridge, or go windsurfing in the shallow Roanoke Sound.

- Play a game of golf at any of the excellent courses, from the Currituck Club up in Corolla all the way down to Nags Head Golf Links.

What to See

The Outer Banks offer miles of scenic beauty and historic treasures.

- See the many historic lighthouses on the coast. Make sure you have your walking shoes on when you climb Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on Hatteras Island - it has 248 stairs on an iron spiral staircase, the equivalent of climbing 12 stories! After all of your work, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the Atlantic. You can also visit the Ocracoke Lighthouse on Ocracoke Island at the very southern point of the Outer Banks, or head to the northernmost point to learn the sordid and mysterious history of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla.

- Visit the Roanoke Settlement Site, the first English colony in the New World and learn about the mysteries of The Lost Colony. It’s an educational experience with games and woodworking to show what life was like back then. You can also visit and board a replica of the Elizabeth II, one of the boats that arrived in the New World in 1585. There’s plenty of activities for both kids and adults to enjoy here. In the summer, the play “The Lost Colony” is performed to educate and entertain.

- Check out the views from Jockey’s Ridge and Jennette’s Pier, both in Nags Head. Sunsets here are simply unmatched.

Events

There are plenty of festivals in the Outer Banks that harness its unique heritage and location. Check out the Bluegrass Island Festival, a newer addition to the fall lineup held the first weekend in October. It features Bluegrass by traditional artists as well as younger revival artists. Don’t forget to come for the homey Southern-style cooking!

The Outer Banks Seafood Festival is another fest celebrating coastal heritage. It’s held for one weekend in mid-October every year in Nags Head across the Roanoke Sound. Aside from enjoying various local seafood and cooking demonstrations, visitors can participate in the Fish House Olympics, including a Mullet Toss - the fish, not the hairstyle - and crab races. There’s also live music and a Dock & Dine event hosted by The Dunes Restaurant.
