Learn about the Town of Southern Shores

The Outer Banks is:

But the Outer Banks is much more than this. Its majestic lighthouses will captivate you, as well as its sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean and golden sunsets over the sound. Throw in surfing, diving, swimming, deep-sea game fishing, hang-gliding at Jockey’s Ridge, canoeing in the sound, and the almost 100 miles long of glorious beaches and you’ve got the makings of an unforgettable and addictive vacation destination. If you vacation on the Outer Banks, be warned, you’ll be “hooked on the Outer Banks.”  It will be different from any other shore vacation.  It's not a far drive but once you're here you will feel a million miles away.

There are also many sightseeing attractions available in the area: Roanoke Festival Park, The Lost Colony, Elizabethan Gardens, Elizabeth II Historical Site, Fort Raleigh National Historical Site, Wright Brothers National Memorial, Jockeys Ridge State Park, North Carolina Aquarium, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Currituck Beach Lighthouse, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Corolla Wild Horses, The Monument to A Century of Flight, and The Whalehead Club. It is also only a short distance to local golf courses and fishing from the surf as well as that deep sea fishing trip.  Go to "Activities" links.  

There are also lots of places where you can explore and learn about nature:  Pea Island National Refuge, Duck Pier Field Research Facility, Nags Head Woods, Center for Wildlife Education, Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, Kitty Hawk Woods, and Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  Travel along the Charles Kuralt Trail or attend the Wings Over Water Festival in the fall months. (A celebration of wildlife and wildlands in Eastern North Carolina.)
 

You can also learn about the history of the area by visiting:  Fort Raleigh National Historical Site, Wright Brother's National Museum, NC maritime Museum, Frisco Native American Museum, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station, Airport Museum, Dare County Civil War Trail, Outer Banks History Center, or attending the play about The Lost Colony.

There are cultural activities as well:  The Lost Colony, Roanoke Island Festival Park, Theatre of Dare, plus occasional local Choral Groups.     

The Outer Banks offers pristine beaches that stretch for miles and the natural beauty of the place is unsurpassed.

Visit the Outer Banks in the spring or fall and take advantage of gorgeous weather, peaceful beaches, and lower rates. The crowds are gone, the fishing is fantastic, the beaches are beautiful, and best of all.....the rates are low.
