With tons of kid-friendly activities including museums, parks, aquariums, and playgrounds, both kid and parent will be happy on this vacation.
For the history buff:
The Outer Banks is a place rich in history. It was here where the first colonists to settle the Americas arrived, only to mysteriously disappear. The Wright Brothers chose this place to test the first flight. Not only that, but the famous pirate Blackbeard frequented the Outer Banks.
For the hard worker:
As much as we love adventure here on the Outer Banks, we know how important relaxing is to a great vacation. While sitting on the beach with your toes in the sand is relaxing, kick it up a notch and visit one of many spas. Take some time out for yourself— you deserve it!
