About Us


The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau is the lead marketing and promotional agency for The Outer Banks of North Carolina and is funded by one percent of the occupancy tax and one percent of the prepared meals tax collected in Dare County. Below you'll find useful information on how we serve our partners here on the Outer Banks, as well as the thousands of visitors who stay with us each year.


We recognize the power of travel as an opportunity to build inclusive communities here on the OBX and beyond by the exchange of culture and commerce through visitation. The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau is committed to promoting tourism in a fair and equitable way that invites visitation to the barrier islands by all, and reaches potential visitors inclusive and without exclusion to race, gender identity, physical ability, religion and beliefs.
