Bring your own or rent an umbrella to beat the harsh rays. whalehead club OBX

Take a quick tour of this beautiful house and learn about OBX before it was the travel destination it is today. Yes, there is air conditioning! big bucks ice cream OBXI’m a little partial to homemade ice cream at Big Bucks Creamery. But there is no shortage of ice cream shops around the island. currituck lighthouse OBX

You can climb Currituck Beach Lighthouse or admire it from below. Look out for its bright light circling overnight. duck donuts OBX

Theres no doubt you need to stop by the famous Duck Donuts shops scattered across the island. My favorite? Chocolate frosting with sprinkles. These are cake donuts made to order.paper canoe OBX

Make a reservation and check out The Paper Canoe in Duck for an amazing meal on the water. sip like a local OBX
