Get Out and Explore

 There are many activities to enjoy on the barrier islands whether you want to be in the water or stay dry. One of the most popular ways to pass the time is fishing. From piers to shore to deep sea fishing, there are many great ways you can try and reel in a catch. You can visit some of the local bait and tackle shops to gear up, just don't forget to grab your fishing license. If you want to try deep sea fishing, you can charter a boat to take you out and the captain will have lots of great pointers to help you out. If you'd rather keep it more casual then surf and pier fishing are a great option. Surf fishing allows you to still enjoy your toes in the sand while trying to reel in a variety of species.

When you're all tuckered out from your beach days, there are a lot of activities and restaurants to explore across the Outer Banks. Maybe take a helicopter ride to see the islands from a different perspective or you could spend your morning on the golf course with many great courses around the area. When you're ready for a refresh, visit some of the great restaurants for some fresh, local seafood or a great local craft brew to help beat the heat!
