Must do's in Duck

Does anyone have suggestions for must-do's in Duck? I know Hatteras but have never been to Duck. Looking for local charm- divey restaurants-outdoor activities (think kayaking- SUP-surfing etc.)...hiking....lighthouse viewing....etc. Thanks.

There are a lot of good restaurants in Duck - from the fancy to the casual. I LOVE Duck Deli, they are kind of kive-y but oh-so-good. A stroll through Scarborough Faire is always fun, some really cute shops. There is a few places you can take a kayak tour through - check out Kitty Hawk Sports for more info.

There are no lighthouses in Duck but there is one just to the north in Corolla.

walking the beach in the early am and entering into casual conversations...staking out your place on the beach about 10am, renting kayak from atlantic rental to go in the ocean surf, if you are a science geek going to the army corps of engineers tour, tshirts from the duck firehouse, gift shops at Scarborough faire, splurge dinner at Blue Point or Roadside Cafe or Red Sky restaurants(in that order), kitty hawk kite adventures off the dock(though I prefer going just north to the jet ski place across from , having cocktails on the beach about 5:30-6 when the sun is less intense, Thursday nite clean out the refrig nite and bring it all down for a picnic on the beach(including all the leftover beer, wine and margarita mixes,) walking the beach after dinner and hear kids scream as ghost crabs run in front of them, keeping drunk relatives from skinny dipping after dusk when sharks are ready to nibble on body parts.... ahhhhhhhh can't wait!!
