This fall, consider a weekend trip to the beach at the Currituck Outer Banks. The Banks serve as a divider between the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound and lie at the top of North Carolina’s barrier islands. While there, you can take in the tranquil beaches, great dining and hundreds of shopping locations. Popular local attractions include:
The Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education
Currituck beach Lighthouse
Mackay island National Wildlife Refuge – prime spot for bird watchers!
For a beach destination mixed with Southern hospitality, the Currituck Outer Banks makes a great place for an early fall getaway.
