It's Time You Travel Outer Banks
The Outer Banks of North Carolina - 130-mile barrier islands that hold miles of unspoiled beaches and adventures for just about any taste. From the first English settlement in America to man's first powered flight, the history can't be beat. Deep sea fishing, kiteboarding, kayaking, or just relaxing in the sun listening to the surf and watching the dolphins - there is so much to do here.
First, you need to know where you're going to stay. See Outer Banks Hotel and Motel Accomodations. If you want a little more room than a hotel can provide, you may want to consider renting a house or condo. While you can spend big bucks on a big house, the houses come in all sizes and often don't cost too much more than a motel. We've stayed in a condo that was much nicer than motels we had been used to at about the same price. Go here to look for an Outer Banks Vacation Rental House. If you fancy a bed and breakfast, there are some nice ones to choose from at Outer Banks Bed and Breakfast. And finally, if you're a camper, see Outer Banks Campgrounds.
When it comes time to eat, check out the Outer Banks Restaurant Guide. As you might expect, there is a lot of good fresh seafood to be had here. For those who aren't crazy about seafood (like me), there are plenty of fine restaurants with a good choice of non-seafood fare.
For things to do, see Outer Banks Activities and Attractions. We recommend seeing the Wright Brothers Memorial and of course you must visit all five lighthouses, two of which can be climbed to the top.
For a fun and interesting adventure, try one of the Outer Banks ATV tours. We took the Portsmouth Island ATV Excursion to see the East Coast's only ghost town and nearly-deserted beaches. Highly recommended! Or try out the hang gliding lessons at Jockey's Ridge.
