OBX Vacation booked!!

Well after careful consideration and suggestions from the fine folks on this great forum, we booked our OBX trip. Going to Emerald Isle then going north through the outer banks. Booked the KOA hatteras. Looks beautiful and very close to the beach. Then heading to kitty hawk. If there are any POI that are a must please chime in.

Every mile along the OBX is a point of interest! Take it slow, or you'll miss em!

Enjoy your trip.

Man, the OBX is full of POI. Wright Bros. Memorial, lighthouses, Pea Island, NC Aquarium, Elizabethan Gardens, Lost Colony, Christmas Tree Shop, much, much more. Great restuarants, too. I've been vacationing there for 53 years.

Make sure you walk to the top of the wright bros memorial. Aside of the history and beauty in the place the view from 'up there' is amazing.

Depending on the time of the year...if you enjoy fishing, buy a $10 fishing permit and enjoy some peaceful surf fishing.

Wild horses in corolla.

I could go on for hours. That is what the beach should be. No high rises. No crowds. Salty, breezy air.

Just for us non-coastal area folks that haven't figured it out..

OBX = Out Banks NC.

I use to know that but had to google it to break loose that engram. LOL

Get over to Ocracoke if you can, free ferry from Hatteras to Ocracoke. (I think it's still free)
It's another world there.

I was just out on the outer banks a couple of weeks ago. I was helping with the reconstruction of homes that were damaged by hurricane Irene last year. I was working in Salvo NC with the NC Baptist Builders. The KOA has a building project going on now. They are installing some very good looking modular cabins on platforms. The platforms are to prevent damage from flooding. The camp ground was open with several motor homes and travel trailers there. There was a new inlet cut threw a narrow place in the OBX. There is a temporary bridge over it now. It is a little narrow so be careful while crossing it. You said you were going to Emerald Isle first. Does that mean that you are planning to take the 2 1/2 hour ferry to Ocracoke? If so make sure you make reservations to assure you of a place on the ferry. The free ferry between Ocracoke and Hatteras had trouble at low tide with shallow water from shoaling. It will be a while before a dredge can be brought in to make the channel deeper. That means they have cut the number of trips the ferry can make every day. You might want to consider going back to New Berne NC and taking Hwy. 17 up to Hwy 64 at Williamston NC to get to the OBX. You will still be able to have a very nice time on the outer banks, I just wanted you to know that there is still recovery going on out there from hurricane Irene.

The small museum at the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education is very nice. it's just a short walk from the Curituck lighthouse near Corolla.

I recommend the Lone Cypress restaurant. It's on the south side of highway 64, on the causeway as you come on to the outer bank.

Jockey's Ridge is a nice walk in the evening. Great view from the top.

You should check out Carolina Seafood in Kittyhawk or Kill Devil Hills - fantastic blackened shark. Many excellent restuarants.
