The Outer Banks (OBX) is our favorite place in the world! We created this site to help people find an equally great place to stay when visiting. The Outer Banks is a 200 mile long string of barrier islands that sit off the coast of North Carolina and Southern Virginia and include many great towns to stay in. The area is steeped in history and provides many great activities and attractions for everyone to enjoy. Each area of the Outer Banks has unique characteristics in terms of layout and feel, but they all share the same amazing beach, some say the best beaches in the United States and even the world.
We have outlined some highlights of each town in the Outer Banks for you to Explore below, including links to other sites with more information to dig into!
Corolla is the northernmost town on the Outer Banks and is well known for its wide beaches and seclusion. Corolla is really all about the beach in our minds and water sports, it gives you easy access to the ocean and the sound. Corolla has a lot of dining and shopping options, but does not have a large amount of commercial development or busy highways like some of the more Southern Outer Banks towns. The town’s best know attractions are the Currituck Beach Lighthouse and the Whalehead Club, where you can visit the NC Center for Wildlife Education.Corolla Properties
