  • Absolutely Perfect!

    "We just finished up our stay at the Chatterbox Too with our two boys and it couldn't have been better! Frank and Linda have a beautiful home, it was so very well taken care of, and, super clean upon our arrival. They provide everything you could possibly need for your time in OBX. From first aid supplies, which we literally needed within the first hour before we unpacked our items (3yr old son cut his toe while coming off the beach) to the awesome wheel Ez making it a simple walk to the beach with numerous beach items, to the garden of tomatoes and basil, etc, they had it all. Our boys loved the decks, the sun room which served as their art room (great thinking with the card table) and the chair swing on the lower deck. We loved the location and the amenities. Right in the heart of Duck, we could walk, bike, etc to ice cream, duck donuts, coffee etc. To top it off, Linda is an OBX expert. From best restaurants to finding the best mozzarella and ciabatta For the panini press, all recommendations came in handy! Also, I threw my back out 1 week prior to arriving, not ideal by any means as we were prepping for a long drive. Linda was able to provide a recommended chiropractor-huge amount appreciation from us! We hope to come back again to "Duck Town" as our boys called it, and to Chatterbox Too!"

  • Wonderful family vacation spot!

    "We had such an amazing time at the Dew Drop Inn! The house was just perfect for our family of five (with rooms to spare)...so comfortable, with all the amenities of home. The kitchen was fully equipped, ready for us to cook. The master bathroom was incredible - not the least of which was the view! The kids enjoyed the resident cat outside, Spiderman, and it was nice to have a "vacation pet"! Lizzie was extremely helpful in suggesting places to go to shop, find the best ice cream, mini golf, showing us how to catch crabs off the dock...then explaining how to cook them. She even mailed back some bathing suits that we had forgotten at the house...so nice! The beach was just a short drive away, and Avalon Pier was the perfect place to park. We had very high expectations of the sunsets going in, and they did not disappoint...incredible! All in all, this was the perfect vacation and our memories at the Dew Drop Inn will last a lifetime. Thank you for sharing your home with us, Lizzie!"

  • Super fun house to rent at the OBX

    "This house provided a great vacation "home base" with accessibility to everything. We stayed with a couple other families, all of whom have young children. So, the bunk beds, good number of bathrooms, pool and hot tub, pool table, and foosball table made it perfect for us. The views of the ocean and sound were gorgeous, with a super short walk to either one. The house is nicely appointed, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals there. In addition, the owner was very responsive and professional."

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.
