The view of the sound from the boardwalk around these shops is amazing! The shops leave quite a bit to be desired and overall are full of junk, but I would visit just to walk the boardwalk.

A variety of shops suitable for all. There is a outdoor bar we walked by and the food smelled great. The boardwalk is located on the sound side and has a great view.

I love these shops. We go there atleast once during our trip and enjoy strolling and watching the sunset. My favorite store in Duck is the Duck General Stoe. I always find unique items there that you can’t find anywhere else.

I love all the waterfront shops! There is a large variety to choose from! The best is the ice cream shop!! It’s so nice to sit on the water and eat your ice cream! There is not very many, but definitely worth a stop!

Nice variety of shops, wish I had more time. Several benches and and places to eat. Everyone we encountered was friendly. Enjoyed that it was along the waterfront. Looked like there were some nice areas nearby to kayak or paddle.

One of the lures for us to Duck was the promise of multitudes of great shops and even antiques in and around Duck including the Waterfront shops. It was a joke with shop after shop of the same brightly colored t-shirts advertising Duck, Nc. These...More
