Some Great Things to Do on the Outer Banks While Touring North Carolina


The TravelWeek Canada blog has a list of; Twelve Things to do in North Carolina and particularly a few things that everyone should consider to do during their Outer Banks vacation.

Tour Coastal Wineries and Vineyards

The vibrant wine scene in North Carolina is perfectly suited to a road trip of several days. The outer banks are home to the Scuppernong River region, home of the scuppernong muscadine grape and the delightfully fruity wines it produces. Wineries with tours, gift shops and restaurants exist up and down the coast.


Have a Blast on the Water

Over 300 miles of warm waters and blue skies make up the North Carolina coastline, making watersports one of the premier activities for vacationers in the state. Scuba divers are attracted by the shipwrecks that litter the coast, “the graveyard of the Atlantic;” stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking are popular ways to explore, and kiteboarding is a great way to catch some air.


Visit Coastal Lighthouses

For a more laid back trip, and a chance to truly soak in the beauty of North Carolina’s shores, a road trip to view the lighthouses of the state offers travellers the chance to see some of the most spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean they will ever see. The Roanoke River Lighthouse is the last of its kind in the world, and “Old Baldy” in the Brunswick Islands served for over 141 years.
