Lazy OBX Morning

Families have been traveling for vacations on the Outer Banks for over 100 years!
For many years, the Outer Banks has been a hot spot for historic travel because of the battles fought on the sand, the challenges won in the air, and the memories made beyond the dunes. When you are counting down and awaiting your next steps on the sand, make sure to take photos and share your memories with the rest of the world! It is amazing to think of how much progress was made in such a small area in the past 100 years as far as technology and vacation luxuries go, imagine what might change in the next 100 years?
