The ultimate family adventure starts with a vacation rental on the Outer Banks. This breathtaking archipelago stretches for over 130 miles off the coast of North Carolina and is home to historic attractions, thrilling outdoor recreation and one-of-a-kind sightseeing. The best part? A vast and beautiful collection of vacation rentals. Breezy beach houses to luxury condos and home rentals, it’s no wonder travelers to the Outer Banks tend to call it a second home. Whether you vacation on the shore or inland in one of its quant towns, the Outer Banks offers something for all ages.
The Outer Banks offers a world-class mix of historic exploration, outdoor recreation and relaxation. Regardless of where your house or condo rental is located, you’re close to the action. The charming town of Manteo holds America’s longest running outdoor drama about the Lost Colony of Roanoake. Witness the beauty of the Elizabethan Gardens growing within the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site. Remember the Wright Brothers’ first powered airplane flight? Take the kids on a tour of the Wright Memorial at Kill Devil Hills, one of OBX’s beautiful northern beaches. Is your family more the aquatic type? The Graveyard of the Atlantic offers a scuba experience like no other. Some 3,000 shipwrecks decorate the depths of Kitty Hawk’s and Ocracoke’s coastline. German U-Boats, Civil War and World War vessels – learn about them all at the Graveyard’s museum on the gorgeous Hatteras Island.
Don’t miss the views of the Outer Banks. Perch yourself atop the Eastern United States’ highest sand dune, Jockey’s Ridge, for jaw-dropping sunsets or climb the tallest brick lighthouse in America at Cape Hatteras. Just make sure to bring your camera!
Vacation rentals on the Outer Banks are a stone's throw from hang gliding, kayaking, hiking, fishing, off-roading, paddle boarding, kiteboarding, windsurfing, sailing, horse riding and more. If golf is your priority, it’s easy to find a beach house rental near one of the seven coastal golf courses on the islands.
Indulging in the local cuisine is a highlight of any vacation. With 170 restaurants specializing in local dishes ranging from fresh seafood to the famous North Carolina, southern-style BBQ, the Outer Banks won’t disappoint.
