The summer season is just about here, and everyone is gearing up for our visitors. So in keeping with that, let’s take a look at some of the new things available on the Outer Banks for the 2019 season.
The Casey Logan Disc Golf Course
Owned by the town of Kill Devil Hills, the new disk golf course is tucked away behind the First Flight High School and offers free disk golf for all. This project was 8 years in the making and recently became a reality thanks to generous donors. Now, any time you want to play disk golf, you can just go to Kill Devil Hills and have a great time.
A new restaurant is always exciting, and it’s even more exciting when you know the food is going to be good. Shipwrecks Restaurant is moving into the old Hooters building, and is brought to you by the people who own Sooey’s BBQ and Sandtrap Tavern. The restaurant promises great food and a ‘retro’ Outer Banks feel. Recent tastings from the restaurant promise to have something for everyone!
Nu-Quality Ice Cream Shop
When you pass by the Food Lion in Southern Shores, you’ll notice a little yellow building. No, it’s not a bank. It’s a drive through ice-cream place. The owner has had a successful ice-cream business in Elizabeth City and is now coming to the Outer Banks. The ice cream shop will be open year round and have limited seating. However, everyone is excited about the drive through. It’s the only ice cream drive in on the Outer Banks, and will taste so good after a long day in the car.
Now in its first full year, Jumpmasters is the Outer Banks only indoor trampoline park. It features all kinds of fun activities like trampolines, climbing walls, and an American Ninja style obstacle course. Kids and adults love Jumpmasters. Atlantic Realty guests get to enjoy a free admission through our Fun N Sun Pass Program.
Axe Throwing Lessons
Unleash your inner Viking and learn how to throw a real axe at a wooden target. No experience required. You’ll learn axe throwing in a safe controlled environment from a master instructor. There’ no better adrenaline rush than learning to throw an axe with precision.
Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre
OK, so this one isn’t exactly new new. It’s now in its 5th season and is in a new location at the Ramada. It has a new menu which is a buffet. It also features a new mystery. So even if you saw it last year, come on by and see it again. It won’t be like last year, and it’s an experience you’re not going to have anywhere else on the Outer Banks.
Now, in all fairness, this was here last year as well. But this year, they’re offering a NEW weekly pass to the park. That’s right. When you buy the weekly pass from Atlantic Realty, you can go as much as you want all day every day (between Saturday and Saturday) for your entire week for one low price.
New Event Homes
Atlantic Realty now does event homes. Currently we have three of them, with the possibility for more in the future. The Pine Island Lodge is our largest and sleeps 80 people with 28 bedrooms. Our other two event homes are Crew Quarters and Knot Home. Each home sleeps 38-40 people with 16 bedrooms each. All three homes have great amenities like a swim up bar in the pool, outdoor entertaining areas, gyms, game rooms, extra sitting rooms and so much more.
We hope you’ll check out some of these new activities on your next visit to the Outer Banks. Let our Vacation Planners help you plan your next Outer Banks adventure or start browsing Vacation Ideas here.
