Planning a trip to the Outer Banks? Let us Help!

The North Carolina Outer Banks are a 90-mile stretch of beautiful barrier islands, only one of which is our favorite Hatteras Island. On the east side of these islands are white sandy beaches and the clear blue Atlantic Ocean. On the west side are brackish water sounds stretching as far as the eye can see. Some towns along the Outer Banks offer robust commercial areas full of shops, galleries and restaurants, while the villages farther off the mainland offer remote solitude.
