Sometimes the best way to get a little bit of shopping done in a small amount of time is to stop by the local shopping plazas for a sample of all the different stores that the Outer Banks has to offer.
Virtually every region of the coastline has a plaza or two for visitors to explore, and sometimes two or three making an afternoon of window shopping in between beach trips a breeze. Bargain hunters will want to pop into the Tanger Outlet Center located in Nags Head for deep discounts on all their favorite brands, while leisurely shoppers who appreciate a good view will want to head to the Hatteras Landing Shopping Center for a collection of shops that border the expansive Hatteras Inlet docks.
Grab your purse and your friends, and get a taste of the local shopping scene with a visit to one of the area's shopping plazas. With everything from fine art galleries to clothing boutiques, you're sure to find something special to always remind you of your Outer Banks vacation.
