If you're looking for something to do in the evening, the boardwalk offers great views of the sunsets over the sound. I've always visited Duck in the fall when it isn't busy and it's a great city to relax and enjoy a laid-back beach culture.

No matter what time of day, this boardwalk offers great views. My wife was getting a much-deserved spa treatment at Aqua so my Son and I had about 1.5 hours to ourselves in duck. We started at Aqua and walked all the way to the town hall of Duck to collect our free free rubber ducky. Along the way, this... More

A mile long boardwalk on the calm waters of the sound, offers gorgeous sunsets! Small stores and shoppes along the way provide food, drinks and AC. :) Great for walking, fishing and crabbing. Several entrances/exits at various spots along Duck Rd offer flexibility.

The boardwalk is fantastic! Goes for almost a mile. Well constructed and just meanders along with shops here and there. We were there for the sunset and it was great! If you have alittle time while in the outer banks, check it out!

We had a nice relaxing time walking along the boardwalk. Starting with the shops at the beginning, it was a nice place to stretch our legs after a morning of driving.

We stayed in Duck and after visiting points of interest on the Outer Banks, the Duck Boardwalk was the best place to watch the sunset by far. Plenty of places to get a bite to eat or a drink while watching the sunset over the set.

It took me 2 visits before I figured out how far you can go...from totally natural to little...and not so little...shops. I just love it from one end to the other. Park in the middle or getting back to your car might be a hike.

Great place to crab with the kids. Can also launch a kayak, SUP or canoe from here. Eat dinner on one end and walk up for ice cream on the other end. Have seen deer, snakes, turtles, osprey, ducks, lots of wildlife. Town park is in the middle of the walk, kids can play on the jungle gym there. Duck... More

Spent the afternoon shopping. Stopped by the Coastal Cantina to have a libation and some salsa and chips. The lovely sound as the the backdrop.
