Outer Banks, North Carolina

Outer Banks, NC has a ton of beaches as you can see from the map. Each beach offers unique experiences. Carova is the place to go if you want to get away from it all. It has wild horses and is only accessible with a 4X4. Kill Devil Hills, the oldest official town in the Outer Banks, is the perfect spot to try hang gliding. You can also visit the Wright Brothers Memorial. Manteo, located on Roanoke Island, includes the NC Aquarium, Elizabethan Gardens, Lost Colony Drama, and the Roanoke Island Festival Park. Buxton is a small village that is perfect for fishing, kite boarding, and windsurfing. Hatteras is best known for fishing, tourism, history and its remote, pristine beaches.

Each summer my fiance and I choose to stay in Avon, NC. We stay in the Avon Motel and grab pizza at night and coffee from Uglie Mugs Coffee House in the morning. There's a private beach attached to the hotel so sunrise and sunset we're on the beach. During the day we shop, and do other touristy things like visit Hatteras and take pictures of the lighthouse. It's a great getaway for us in the small fishing town without tons of tourists.
