Jockey's Ridge is a must do while in the outer banks. It is a bit of walking, but great views and good free family fun. Bring a camera!

This was somewhat of a surprise to me as I read the reviews and thought I might just run through and move on to another more exciting attraction, howeverJRSP was very nice. The dunes are large and noticable from the road. I also enjoyed watching the hang glider school. I managed to walk to the top dune for the view and it was impressive. I'd highly recommend JRSP.

Took a hang gliding lesson with Kitty Hawk Kites. It was fun! We didn't get to do as much as they normally do because it was too windy. They said I could come back the next day for no charge, but I was leaving. So if you do this, pick a day early in your trip.
