The Outer Banks, NC

Overview

Quote:
The Wright Brothers National Monument at Kill Devil Hill is a must-do activity. When you stand at the spot where they made their first flights, almost 100 years ago, and realize the distance they traveled isn't even a city block long, you'll see how far aviation has traveled, since its inception. Get up before dawn and go to the beach to watch dolphins swimming up and down the coast as they feed. A good pair of binoculars is helpful. Seeing the Wild Horses in Corolla, at the northern end of the Outer Banks is a great experience. Quick Tips: Don't drive your own car on the sand north of Corolla in search of the wild horses, unless it is 4-wheel drive! Take one of the guided tours, in the...Read More

Shortly after arriving for a week in the Outer Banks, I saw an ad for Maione's in a local newspaper. The ad called Maione's the place "where the Jersey Shore meets the Outer Banks." As an experienced Jersey Shore visiter and long time Italian food aficianodo, I knew I would have to check out Maione's. Why, some of the best Italian meals I have ever eaten were those I ate on the Jersey Shore. Due to a busy schedule of lighthouses and wild horses, my husband and I were not able to get to Maione's until our last night in the Outer Banks, by which time we had suffered through some truly forgetable meals in the more popular seafood buffets.
