Fun on the Land

The only thing better than waking up and smelling the fresh salty air from your beach house is laying on the beach and stretching your feet out into the warm sand. The OBX beaches are the ultimate getaway. If there is a history buff in your crew, the Wright Brothers National Monument, The Lost Colony and the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse will absolutely peek their interest with possibility & hope.

Rollin’ in the Waves

It’s said to be true that the Outer Banks is the ultimate kiteboarding destination with our steady winds and rolling dunes. Are you looking for a new sport to try? No one is ever too old or young to feel the spirit of surfing a wave. Maybe you would rather test your fishing skills and charter a boat, head out to the Gulf Stream and take your chances reeling in a Marlin (or two)!
