Outer Banks Area Features

Outer Banks Area Features

No matter what your definition, the perfect vacation awaits you on the Outer Banks.

Learn a lesson in courage and determination set amidst the landscape of North America's only range of natural sand dunes. More than 100 years ago, the Wright Brothers flew their plane over the sand in what is now Kill Devil Hills. Peruse the site of the historic flight, visit the museum exhibit, and then take a flight across the dunes at Jockey's Ridge State Park, the only hang gliding school in the country.

Whether you prefer a leisurely kayak tour through the swamps of Roanoke Island or want to try your hand at kite boarding, there's an activity suited for you. Take a dolphin watching tour, hop aboard a Jet Ski or simply dive into the ocean.

If you want a bit more history, cross the bridge from Nags Head to Roanoke Island, discover the site of the oldest colony settlement and learn about the mysterious disappearance of its inhabitants. Board a replica of the Queen Elizabeth II and explore colony life at Roanoke Island Festival Park. After the history lesson, enjoy the shopping in quaint downtown Manteo.

Looking for the perfect vacation within your vacation? Take a day trip south to beautiful Hatteras and Ocracoke islands. These islands are rich in history and mystery - scan the seas from the world-famous Cape Hatteras lighthouse - or search for Blackbeard's treasure.

Vacations are precious, so don't waste a minute. Browse through our listings and let us help you fill your time.
