Orientation

Enjoy Some TLC in OBX

Known locally as “OBX”, Outer Banks, NC is made up of a string of barrier islands that separate the mainland of the southern east coast of the United States from the Atlantic Ocean. The area is made up of four distinct islands: Bodie, Hatteras, Ocracoke, Portsmouth and Core Banks. The North Carolina coastline is lined with interesting shipwrecks, miles and miles of gorgeous sand and crisp waves, beautiful coves and less-populated spots from where you can launch your canoe or kayak. Because of its “barrier” position, Outer Banks is also known to receive the first hit form tropical storms. Yet, this doesn’t stop vacationers and travelers from flocking to the area, primarily because of its gorgeous coastline, historic lighthouses and sojourns with nature.

Be One With Nature

Even though it maintains an urban vibe, mainly thanks to its rich tourism industry, Outer Banks is truly every nature lover’s dream come true. The area affords many opportunities for bird watching and fishing, hiking and kayaking right from the coastline. The large sand dunes of Jockeys Ridge State Park are a great place to take off on your own hang gliding adventure and this is besides the score of other activities the island promotes which includes golfing, surfing, marathons and wine tastings. If you want to get around all the islands dotting Outer Banks, using the ferry service is your best bet. There are charter flights available from nearby Dare & Currituck County airports. The best way to get around, especially for those not familiar with the area is definitely via a car rental.
