Duck Shopping

Outer Banks / Duck

Best Places to Shop in Duck

The quaint, distinguishable tone that sets Duck apart from the rest of the towns of the Outer Banks is not only driven by the enchanting landscape that encompasses the town, but also by the careful selection of businesses that operate within its borders.

Marked by a string of waterfront shops that wind along the Currituck Sound, and a smattering of cottage-like buildings housing some of the most intriguing shops, restaurants and markets there are, Duck offers the ultimate shopping experience: one that incorporates the town’s natural beauty into just about every step.

Stroll beneath live oaks, view the sunset as you walk from shop to shop on the sound’s edge, or enjoy the fact that you can park your car or step out of your Duck vacation rental and enjoy most of the town’s shops by foot, as most of them are nestled together in a convenient, yet uncluttered arrangement.
