Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Beautiful Home! Will exceed your expectations!

    "We just finished another 2 week stay on the Outer Banks. We are repeat guests in this home and it continues to be the nicest home we have rented in the area. The home and its furnishings are beautiful. It is extremely well maintained and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The owner is extremely responsive to needs and is very dedicated to ensuring that every guest is well taken care of. The ocean is just a short walk away and the close proximity to shopping makes its location very convenient."

  • OBX Charm

    "We spent the last week of August at the Nags Head Cottage. The house was close to the beach and had everything we needed for a week of fun in the sun. It was decorated with beach colors,interesting artwork and knickknacks. The view from the crows nest was spectacular. There were 4 adults and 3 kids in our party and we all had a fabulous time. We would definitely rent this cottage again."

  • First time visitor to Ocracoke

    "Loved the views, especially from the screened porch. Location close to many shops and restaurants. If you want to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped. Very comfortable bedrooms. One caution, many stairs. Condo starts on the second floor and living area is on third floor."

  • Wonderful Beach Vacation!

    "My family stayed at Betcha Like It this year and loved it! There is plenty of room for everyone and we loved the fact that there were several sitting areas; a living room on each level, a very comfy screened in porch and the picnic table in the tower. The ocean view and the convenience of the pool were huge pluses. There were only two things that could have made this trip better. If there were none of those little briars things that get in the carpet (they hurt when you step on them) and the second is I wish we had booked for two weeks instead of one!"

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.
