Things To Do In The Outer Banks

Sightseers can take advantage of the 4 unique lighthouses in the area as well as Jockey’s Ridge, the east coast’s largest sand dune. Lastly, the whole family can gather together to experience the world’s longest running outdoor production, The Lost Colony, which tells the story of the first English colony established on Roanoke Island and their mysterious disappearance.
