The Outer Banks: A Value Laden Beach Vacation

Outer Banks Dunes Sunrise
Recently the North American Press Syndicate provided the Outer Banks some nice publicity in distributing an article about value laden vacations. The subject location of the article you ask? The Outer Banks!

The article reads in part...

Travelers are increasingly finding that vacations -- even beach vacations -- don't have to break the bank.

For example, visitors to North Carolina's Outer Banks can experience 120 miles of beach from the undeveloped Cape Hatteras National Seashore to crowd-pleasing Nags Head -- for very little cost. Plus, the Outer Banks area offers attractions (many of which are free), from a climb of Jockey's Ridge (The largest Sand dune on the east coast), to admission into the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island.

The Cape Hatteras to Ocracoke Ferry gives beachgoers the opportunity to explore the uninhabited beaches along Ocracoke Island. Travelers can also head to Corolla to view Banker ponies that swam ashore after Spanish explorers were shipwrecked off the coast and continue to reside on the island since the 1500s.

For a blast into the past, the Outer Banks allows history buffs to experience life before America declared independence to the day where Sir Walter Raleigh led explorers to the new world to establish the first colony of settlers. On Roanoke Island the longest running outdoor drama "The Lost Colony" chronicles the story of those brave settlers who disappeared hundreds of years ago on these mysterious shores. Flying fans will also want to take time to visit the place where powered flight began, as the Wright Brothers National Memorial is centrally located in the heart of the Outer Banks in Kill Devil Hills. There visitors can see first hand the conditions that the brothers from Ohio braved some 106 years ago to come to the Outer Banks and fulfill their dream of creating the first powered flight.

Dangling like a delicate strand of pearls off the coast is one of the only remaining natural barrier island systems in the world. The islands take a curious southward curve, blessing the Coast with beaches that course east and west, making it possible to admire the dazzlingly bright sunrise to greet the day and then slip into the shimmering translucent blue waters in the evening during a spectacular sunset.

On North Carolina's Outer Banks, families can enjoy a beach vacation that doesn't break the bank.

We here at "Everything Outer Banks" appreciate the plug that NAPSI gave the Outer Banks. We happen to agree with all they wrote!

Until next time...all the best from the beach!
