After experiencing many of the fun things to do in Outer Banks and its natural beauty, we can report that this destination is just heaven.

North Carolina is full of enough adventure, history, water sports and culture to keep you from getting bored, but not too much to distract you from quiet moments spent appreciating natural beauty.

What Are the Outer Banks?

The Outer Banks (OBX) is a 130-mile stretch of barrier islands just off the coast of North Carolina, from Corolla in the north to Ocracoke in the South.

Hang Gliding at Jockey’s Ridge State Park

All good vacations need a dose of adventure. A chance to step out of your comfort zone and create a story to share forever. Hang gliding in Jockey Ridge State Park is the story you’ve been looking for.

Eat Innovative Food at NC Coast & Grill, Duck

I recommend starting or ending your Duck boardwalk stroll with lunch at NC Coast Grill & Bar, a new restaurant in Duck.  You get superb Currituck Sound views and delicious food described as coastal and Southern with nuances from around the world. Our Mexican poutine and fish street tacos were evidence of that.

Trust me, you do NOT want to miss the Outer Banks Beaches!

Don’t miss Fish Heads Bar & Grill, Nags Head

We’re not really pier people – Santa Monica kind of ruined that idea for us.  However, Fish Heads Bar & Grill at the Outer Banks Fishing Pier won us over. It’s now our favorite pier in the country and is how we think you should do piers.
