Outer Banks Named in "1000 Places to See Before You Die"

The New York Times Bestseller "1000 Places to See Before You Die" is a dreamers paradise. Sort of a life time bucket list the book makes one wonder about what it would be like to see the Highland games in Scotland, walk the Acropolis in Greece, and see the Penguin Rookeries in Antarctica.

But in reviewing the book this past weekend (A Christmas gift) it was a pleasant surprise to see one particular place that we here at Everything Outer Banks know all very well. The Outer Banks is named by author Patricia Schultz as one of the spots you must see.

"Some of the most unusual and beautiful beaches on America's Atlantic coast can be found in North Carolina's Outer Banks, a string of skinny barrier islands that stretches 150 miles from the Virginia border to the southernmost point at Cape Lookout and Beaufort, a charming mainland town first settled in 1710. The candy-striped Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the most famous structure on the Outer Banks and the tallest of America's lighthouses."
We don't know about the "unusual" part (we think our natural beauty is normal), but we agree with Ms. Schultz' assessment of the Outer Banks being one of the most beautiful beaches on America's Atlantic coast. In fact we would go so far as to say it is THE most beautiful beach on the Atlantic coast!

As we close the decade with our last post we here at "Everything Outer Banks" want to take time to say that we never take for granted the amazing gift of beauty that the Outer Banks offers us all. You have seen so many wonderful pictures here from our guests who have participated in our Memory Monday contest and we never cease to be amazed at the natural beauty that is the backdrop that we experience every day as we live in this most wonderful place.

From all of us here at "Everything Outer Banks" we wish you a Happy New Year, and we look forward to serving you at Outer Banks Blue on your next family vacation to this place that now ranks among the 1,000 Best Places to See in the World.
