Situated on a 100-mile stretch of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina, the pristine beaches of the Outer Banks have become a well-known family vacation destination. In addition to their picturesque beaches, they’re well known for our historic landmarks and cultural interests, charming shops, fine restaurants and family-friendly attractions.

  1. It will be a holiday tradition you and your family will cherish forever. Skip the crowded airports. Stop fighting over whose house will host the holiday dinner this year. Start a new family tradition by coming together to celebrate the holiday season and make the

  3. Playing in the sand vs. playing in the snow. Escape the snowdrifts for a holiday celebration where the sandcastles are three stories tall.
