1. The Outer Banks aka OBX is a special place for everybody that comes here. They say that once you get a little Outer Banks sand in your shoes and some saltwater in your blood, you'll want to move out here for good. There's some validity to that when you look at how many of our visitors come back here year after year and how many of our families come back generation after generation.

    For everyone, OBX marks the spot for something special. What does X mark the spot for to you?

  2. The Outer Banks is steeped in rum history and pirate legend. The more than 1,000 shipwrecks along the coast have led it to be named “The Graveyard of the Atlantic,” and some of the wreckage contained barrels of rum. The town of Kill Devil Hills is believed to have been named for either barrels of rum of the brand name Kill Devil or for a rum that was “strong enough to kill the devil.”

  3. Experience a whole new adventure as you explore the waters in and around the Outer Banks at the newly renovated NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island. Exhibits educate visitors as they journey through coastal freshwater habitats to find river otters, turtles, and American alligators. Conservation efforts can be witnessed first-hand in the Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation (STAR) Center. Wander into a sunken treasure ship as a variety of marine animals swim all around. Touch a stingray, wonder at sea jellies, and marvel at history.

  5. Located just south of Nags Head, the Bodie Island Lighthouse as it stands today is the third such beacon built to help mariners maneuver the coast from Cape Hatteras to Currituck Beach. The original Bodie Island Lighthouse (pronounced “body”)was built in 1847, on the south side of Oregon Inlet in an area known today as Pea Island.
