The Outer Banks, aka OBX, is a special place for everybody that comes here. They say that once you get a little Outer Banks sand in your shoes and some saltwater in your blood, you'll want to move out here for good. There's some validity to that when you look at how many of our visitors come back here year after year and how many of our families come back generation after generation. There are plenty of ways to play, and fun activities to try at the Outer Banks. But the best things to do in the OBX are even better with friends and family, so don’t forget to bring your buddies. We have the perfect Trip Ideas to help plan your vacation. Do you consider yourself an adventure junkie, history buff, nature enthusiast? Find your way to your favorite activities either by air, on land, or cruising the waters. Don't be a tourist, be a traveler; immerse yourself in the experience. Stay updated with our updated list of Events happening on the OBX from art shows, to music series, to seafood festivals. For everyone, OBX marks the spot for something special. What does X mark the spot for to you?
