North Carolina's Outer Banks are a narrow stretch of land begining just south of the Virginia line and
extending to Pamlico Sound. The Outer Banks played a critical role in American History as they
welcomed Virginia Dare and the very first settlers. Lighthouses were built in the early 1800s
to warn passing ships as well as to beckon those seeking safe harbor, including the infamous Black Beard.
Today, the North Carolina Outer Banks beckon all those seeking rest and recreation in the sun, sand, and surf.
