Traveling to the Outer Banks

As I mentioned earlier , the Outer Banks of North Carolina is my favorite place to vacation. We spent a week there in August this year and it never ceases to amaze me just how beautiful it is. The dunes and the ocean are just amazing. The fishing is outstanding too.

I'd like to share a few links to websites that are helpful to anyone planning a vacation.

First I highly recommend Midgett Realty for accommodations. They have a wide range of rental homes from affordable to outrageously expensive. The agents we have dealt with have always been friendly and helpful. You can find them here: Midgett Realty

Second I recommend Island Free Press for general information about the islands. They have all the info you need regarding beach access issues , local laws and just about everything you could think of that is OBX related. This is where you need to go if you have questions about beach driving. Unfortunately , beach driving is a political issue now. There are links on Island Free Press that explain what's happening and what YOU can do.

Third , for anyone who is interested in fishing , I recommend a couple of sites that have useful information and are mostly fish related. Oregon Inlet Fishing Center is a great place if you want to hire a charter boat for a day or spend the day on the Miss Oregon Inlet party boat. Most of the captains that run out of Oregon Inlet are journeymen of the Outer Banks - certified and very experienced. If boat rides aren't your idea of a good time check out There is a ton of useful information on there concerning surf and pier fishing as well as tide charts and other fishing related info.

I hope some of you are able to enjoy the Outer Banks as much as my family and I do. It is truly a unique experience to spend a week on a barrier island.

Be sure to check out my Link section below for more fishing info.
