One of our favorite Outer Banks memories will always be crabbing on the sound side near Duck. We bought crabbing supplies from a local fishing supply store, which included a crab pin on string, an instruction book, and chicken necks. A license was not necessary. We got permission to crab from a small pier and took our supplies and a lidded pail there to try our hands at catching crab for dinner.
First you slide a chicken neck on the pin and then you drop it into the water while hanging onto the string. In seconds we were pulling up crabs like CRAZY!! A large turtle also tried to steal the bait, but we got it away from him. When we had a couple dozen proper-sized crabs, we took them to our rental home and cooked them for dinner--YUM! Crabbing was one of the highlights of our vacation on the Outer Banks.

There is a Food Lion in Corolla that stocks up completely every Friday for renters on the weekend, but the lines get VERY long Sat. afternoons so try to get there early. There are some newer restaurants now and an entire shopping center around Food Lion and across the street at TimBuck II with shops, food and ice cream. There is also a Dairy Queen and a large movie theater for anyone who needs a little taste of home. Some areas even have an ice cream truck that comes through in the afternoon and early evening. Many places also have a beautiful view of the sound, so the sunrises over the ocean are gorgeous as are the sunsets over the sound. Many homes are available for weddings and special events, and there are plenty of caterers and photographers available to help with the occasion. Contact rental companies for information.

There is a series of islands linked together and each has something special to offer of its own. The islands are close together and only takes about 45 minutes to get to the furthest one.
