In January 2019, we held a Facebook Contest in which we asked participants to post their favorite Outer Banks photo that captivated their “OBX Moment” using the hashtag #OBXmoment. We received over 750 awesome entries and we absolutely loved seeing our guests favorite moments captured via photograph. We also learned a few things about our guests – they love family adventures! While we received pictures of sunsets, wildlife, sunrises, the ocean, dogs, boats, piers, landmarks and more, 49% of entries were photographs capturing families enjoying the ultimate Outer Banks Moment! We loved these photos so much that we thought we’d share a few of our top favorites with you! (Also check out our favorite dog photos and our favorite beach photos!)

Being at the beach makes you feel like a kid again!

The pier is the perfect setting for capturing this #OBXmoment!

Nothing like a family beach selfie - especially when one of the kids does the "silly face" during the smile pose!

Jessie has been coming to the Outer Banks since she was just 5 years old. She loved it here so much that she finally relocated in 2018. Now her mission is to show the world that the Outer Banks is an incredible place that everyone should experience. When she isn't working, you can find Jessie hanging out with her friends, chilling at home with her awesome cat, Yoji, or discovering a new Outer Banks adventure.
