Sightseeing

Largest sand dunes on the East Coast. This is an easy and great adventure for kids and adults alike. A great new activity here is flying a replica of the original Wright Brothers glider. Check in with Kitty Hawk Kites for details.

A beautiful boardwalk along the soundside in Duck. Amazing place to take in the sunset. Shops and restaurants periodically along the boardwalk - which is not a traditional boardwalk in any way.

This is the inlet the fishing boats use to pass from the Atlantic into the sound. If you want to do some charter fishing, this is where you will leave from to go out to the Gulf Stream. A new favorite day trip is to go down to the last parking area before the bridge to see the wreck of the Ocean Pursuit. This is a 75 foot boat that shipwrecked in Spring of 2020 and is slowly sinking into the sand. Lots of fun to climb on. On your way there, you will pass by Bodie Island Lighthouse if you want to make it a two stop day trip.

Shopping

This is the best place to get quality Outer Banks branded sweatshirts, T's, beach towels, and other beach necessities. They have prospered on the island since 1948 because everyone knows they have the best stuff.

This is the best pizza close to the house. They deliver. If you are a vegan, they do an amazing vegan pizza, but also they do all the classics. The are MUCH BETTER than Southern Shores Pizza which actively sucks.

This is an unusual Mexican restaurant that is a major local favorite. Of course they have amazing Tacos and Margaritas, but their cuisine is a lot more adventurous and higher quality than your typical Mexican restaurant. This place is a big favorite among the locals.

Everything Else

Go kart racing was a fun family outing on the Outer Banks for years. This one is a little off the beaten path, but it's a throwback to the good ol' days. Fun for the whole family.

Closest golf course. Also the best and most challenging on the island. If you are a novice, buy an extra sleeve of balls - lots of water traps. Also, tennis, swimming, and other amenities.

Where to go when you yearn to see the sun setting over water. It's just a couple of minutes away from the house, and the best close place to go to "see what's on the other side of the island." You will start wondering about that on the fourth or fifth day. This is also a great place to take kids swimming if the ocean has a couple of days of being too rough for them.

Arts & Culture

This is a must-see on one of your trips to the Outer Banks. Open amphitheater live presentation drama about the original colonies here in the US. Where Andy Griffith got his start. Fascinating.

This is an unusual gallery that features works by local artists and focuses on arts objects created from recycled and found materials. This is an amazing place to find one of-a-kind gifts. You will see stuff here you can't see or buy anywhere else, including art cards and photo prints created by your host! They have opened a second location in Duck. It's good, but it's not the same as the original, and doesn't have nearly as much stuff.
