It usually happens when you cross the bridge, or maybe when your feet first hit the sand, the cares of the working world start to fade away. Replaced by a sense of freedom and a spirit of adventure that only comes with the OBX. So now that you’ve cleared the decks, let’s have some fun! The Outer Banks may be best known for summer, but now it seems like events are happening practically every week. Have a blast sampling the specialties of the day at our one-of-a-kind local restaurants. Or, find a great bargain at one of our shops and attractions. Leave the familiar ruts behind and try something completely new. The Outer Banks has plenty of ways to make sure your water cooler story post-vacation is a jaw dropper. But be sure to capture and share the moment, and stay in touch with us, too, by hitting a hashtag or two. This is vacation baby, Outer Banks style! Bring it on.
