The Outer Banks is made up of over a 100 mile stretch of barrier islands connected by bridges and pleasingly placed on the coast of North Carolina. Known as the home away from home for some, the Outer Banks has multiple hidden treasures to offer even to the most seasoned guests. If you’ve never been here, be prepared to be astounded by the unspoiled beauty of its white sanded beaches and roayl blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The Outer Banks is fitting for everyone, offering a wide assortment of outdoor activities and family fun, yet is still one of the most favorited and ideal places to vacation to. There is so much to do in the Outer Banks, it’s hard to imagine anyone trying to see and do everything in just one visit. The magic of the Outer Banks will bring you back, time and time again.

The picturesque shoreline is undoubtedly the main attraction when coming to the Outer Banks for its endless array of watersports and stunning sunsets. The backdrop of incredible beauty that you encounter while staying in the Outer Banks is like no other place you have seen before. Unlike other shorelines in the nation, this one actually holds the title for being the nation’s first seashore. While walking along the coastline, you can climb any four of the coastal lighthouses for more amazing views, including America’s tallest lighthouse. You can stand in the spot where the Wright brothers took flight, watch wild horses run free along the shores, and even visit the place where the first colony settled and mysteriously vanished. The Outer Banks is much more than your modern vacation spot, it’s a piece of American heritage that transcends you through time and extends an authentic view of some of the most historical events of our country.
