An Experience You Won't Soon Forget
Comprising a series of barrier islands and peninsulas that stretch for nearly 200 miles along the North Carolina coastline, the Outer Banks boasts an unparalleled landscape and a history steeped in tradition, mystery and precedent. Take a walk in the footsteps of the Wright Brothers, retracing their last steps before lifting off into man’s “first flight;” view shipwrecks that were lost in the notorious Graveyard of the Atlantic, right from where you stand on the beach; or explore the area where some of America’s first colonists chose to make their home before they mysteriously disappeared, making the “Lost Colony” one of our nation's oldest and most intriguing unsolved mysteries.
