Welcome to the Outer Banks 

The Outer Banks has a way of connecting with people, staying with them long after the vacation is over. Uncrowded beaches that stretch for miles and the endless possibilities that come with them. This is America’s First Beach. The site of our country’s first National Seashore and the place where the English first tried to settle in the New World. National and state parks share those stories and more. You’ll find hospitable people in the towns and villages of the Outer Banks, and plenty of vacation rentals, hotels, and other comfortable lodging options to call “home” for a few days, or a week or two. The restaurant and shopping choices are every bit as diverse. Not many big box stores or chain restaurants out here. Chances are, you’ll have to try something new. But hey, this is the land of firsts. You’ll be rewarded for stepping outside of the ordinary. View a list of our Restaurant hours and openings for Fall and Winter.

Life on the Edge

The OBX is a 130-mile stretch of barrier islands just off the coast of North Carolina. Made up of quaint towns and sleepy fishing villages, each wonderfully weather worn to a varying degree. Even spanning hundreds of years and despite millions of visitors, each town retains its own individual character
