US News World Report Ranks Outer Banks Best Family Beach Vacation
U.S. News and World Report recently released its list of the 10 Best Family Beach Vacations in the USA, giving the Outer Banks, North Carolina the No. 1 top spot!
The site has this to say about the Outer Banks: “History drips from the Outer Banks: Here, aviators Orville and Wilbur Wright took their famous first flight (at Kitty Hawk), the pirate Blackbeard fought his last battle (at Ocracoke), and the mysterious Lost Colony disappeared (where is anyone’s guess). But this chain of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina — OBX for those in the know — isn’t just for history buffs. Fishing, windsurfing, nature watching and ATV driving attracts the adventurous types while the beach, mini-golf and the aquarium entertains families and young couples. And each island has its own charm: The old lighthouses, rugged dunes and secluded beaches in the south couple with vacation rentals, water sports and kitschy beach shops in the north, all to form a unique seaside destination.”
