Where in the Outer Banks should we visit??

by lbaz95 Online Now Aug 25, 2011 at 11:07 AM


My husband and I are planning a getaway from our kids for 4-5 days in mid-October. We have never been to OBX and are thinking of going there. We like to shop (unique shops, not national chains), bike, and eat. Where in the OBX would you recommend? We are thinking that it will also give us a chance to investigate whether it is a good place for a family vacation next summer. We were leaning toward Duck or Nags Head.

    I'd recommend Manteo. It's a cute town with a lot of history (the whole Roanoke Island Colony thing). Not exactly on the coast, but pretty close, and it's pretty much exactly what you're looking for.
