Outer Banks

 

The Outer Banks is a 200-mile (320-km) long string of narrow barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina.

They cover most of the North Carolina coastline, separating the Currituck Sound, Albemarle Sound, and Pamlico Sound from the Atlantic Ocean.

The Outer Banks is a major travel destination known for its temperate climate and wide expanse of open beachfront.

It is also known as the place where the Wright brothers’ first flight in a powered, heavier-than-air vehicle took place on December 17, 1903 (at Kill Devil Hills near the seafront town of Kitty Hawk).

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
