Please don’t tell our friends elsewhere on the coast, okay? We love the Outer Banks and are happy to share guides on things to do there, restaurants, and more.

OBX Fun Facts
The Outer Banks is an area full of interesting geographical features and history. The number of islands and inlets here always changes, due to severe storms opening some up and closing others. If you ever look at a map of all the shipwrecks that surround The Outer Banks, you’ll know exactly why it’s known as “the Graveyard of the Atlantic.” There’s even a museum named that in Hatteras. The Lost Colony of Roanoke also started out in nearby Manteo and Dare County is named after Virginia Dare, the first English person born in America.
