This new application is available for iPhone and iPad at Apple Store or for Android at Google Play.

The Play section helps you to get the most out of your time on the OBX, with information on events, things to do, tours, beach and sound access locations. The Outer Banks is an outdoor-lovers’ paradise with more than 100 miles of uncrowded beach, quick access to off-shore charter fishing and some of the best surfing, kiteboarding, free-diving and windsurfing imaginable. The OBX also lays claim to some of the country’s most significant achievements as commemorated by three National Park Service sites. You’ll see where the Wright Brothers first flew and where England first attempted to colonize in the New World. Visit four lighthouses, including the country’s tallest brick lighthouse at Cape Hatteras. There’s so much to do, we’ve organized the activities by land, water and air.
And with all that action you’re sure to build an appetite! The Dine section has you covered. Search by distance or by cuisine, the choice is yours. And talk about choices! The OBX is known for hundreds of individually-owned, non-chain restaurants. Everything from fine dining to sandwich shops, coffee and breakfast to pizza. Want to just search the restaurants serving seafood? No problem. Need a place that’s kid-friendly? Kid-friendly has its own category on the OBX Travel app. Find directions, descriptions, websites and contact info, all in one place and all designed to make it easier for you.
