Outer Banks
The waters and wide beaches of the Outer Banks are the main draw for visitors, allowing access to a variety of outdoor activities. Surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking are great ways to get out on the water, and the Outer Banks are a sailor’s paradise. The bountiful waters are also great for fishing, whether you’re casting your line from shore or heading out to the Atlantic for some world-class deep-sea fishing. Landlubbers will find plenty of outdoor activities, too, from hiking through maritime forests to climbing the East Coast’s tallest sand dune; more adventurous souls can take to the air on a hang glider for a bird’s eye view of the Outer Banks.
