OBX Pauses Visitor Access to Save Lives

We know you love the Outer Banks, and we love you. Joining in the effort to keep everyone safe here, and wherever you call home, travel to and through Dare County's portion of the OBX is now restricted to residents, essential personnel and other specific individuals. Please note, non-resident property owners are not allowed access at this time. You can read the full statement with more details here. County emergency management leadership took this difficult but proactive step after careful consideration of national and state actions to stem the spread of the virus. We recommend contacting your lodging provider for questions regarding a current or upcoming trip. The most timely information concerning Dare County's travel restriction can be found at DareNC.com. Please be safe, and we look forward to once again welcoming visitors to our shores.

Due to dining restrictions set in place because of COVID-19, many local restaurants are offering takeout and delivery options as an alternative to dining in restaurants. This list of restaurants is subject to change, please call ahead for specific menus and hours of operation.
