3. The Outer Banks hosts several events in the summer including live musical performances, kite festivals, art shows, and sporting events. Make sure to get out and about to see what's going on!

4. The Outer Banks offers something for all shopping enthusiasts. Unique speciality shops and boutiques are located in almost every town, along with the traditional beach stores for all your beach gear needs. Vactioners seeking to indulge in a little retail therapy will find everything from homemade beach-inspired souvenir shops to budget-friendly outlet shopping and popular surf shop threads.
