The Outer Banks town of Duck, North Carolina, is a quaint vacation town on the Northern end of the OBX. Duck regularly earns the designation of “Best Beaches” including Travel Channel’s Best Beach directory. The town of Duck is a thriving coastal community with a great mix of local shops, fine dining, entertainment and much more.
Duck offers waterfront sunrises and sunsets and miles of oceanfront and sound front to explore. Hidden under centuries old Live Oaks and tall patches of cedars, most of the Town’s shops and restaurants are connected by the Duck boardwalk. The boardwalk runs the entire length of the town- parallel to the main road and sidewalks as well as the Currituck Sound.
You will discover the very best of Outer Banks’ dining and shopping, all within a small town atmosphere. With all of the shops and restaurants being centrally located within a half mile radius the town of Duck is easy to explore by foot.
The beach is the big draw that is loved by locals and visitors alike. The pristine beaches offer seasonally warm temperatures, surfing and shelling with large quiet strips of sand with no commercial businesses or vehicular traffic to drown out the sounds of the Atlantic Ocean. Not only is there the beautiful sandy beaches for all to enjoy, many of Duck’s businesses offer rentals and lessons for a number of beach sports. Rent an ocean kayak or enjoy a guided sound kayak tour, learn how to surf, kite board, or stand up paddle board.
Whether it’s exploring Outer Banks nature, shopping unique boutiques, dining at local eateries, attending local events and festivals, or just lounging along the shores, you’ll discover there is no shortage of activities both on and off the beach.
