Outer Banks, North Carolina Travel
The Outer Banks is a 200-mile chain of narrow barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina. People are drawn to their beautiful beaches, state parks, delicious fresh seafood, and shipwreck diving sites. Visitors can spread out over 100 miles of pristine shoreline.
England’s first settlement in America was what is known as the Lost Colony on Roanoke Island. The Wright Brothers’ first flight took place in 1903 at Kill Devil Hills near the town of Kitty Hawk. Ocracoke was the last refuge of the pirate Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard. He died there in 1718 after a battle with troops from Virginia.
Each of the Outer Banks’ six lighthouses is unique. The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the best known and the tallest lighthouse in North America.
The reason many people love to go to the Outer Banks is for the thrill of driving on the beach. If you enjoy this, you’ll find miles of shoreline to explore on the uninhabited beach along Ocracoke Island. The beaches of Carova are only accessible by 4 wheel drive vehicles.
In addition to swimming, sunbathing, shelling and all manner of water sports, there’s a lot to see and do on the Outer Banks. You can go on a dolphin-watching cruise.
Take a kayak tour. Or a paddleboarding tour of the waterways and islands. Or go deep-sea fishing.
The Outer Banks is said to be one of the most haunted spots in this country, so be sure to take a Ghost Tour.
