USA Today’s “10Best” Visits Alluring Outer Banks!

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

In a 10Best featured article for USA Today, “10Best Visits the Alluring Outer Banks.” The article notes, “When it comes to beaching it, everybody is different. Some sun worshippers long for action, a busy Boardwalk and plenty of after-dark activity. Then, there’s the Outer Banks. This series of North Carolina barrier islands attracts a mellower crowd. A strip of laid back beach towns connected by bridges, the Outer Banks, or OBX for short, is home to about 60,000 residents year-round. That number nears 500,000 during the summer and fall, vacationers drawn by powdery sand, stellar fishing and a shallow coastline dotted with historic wrecks. Most stay in the McMansions that line the beaches; six, seven and eight-bedroom homes that can easily host a multi-gen family getaway, a girlfriend’s weekend or a sporty man-cation.”

Outer Banks “Things To Do”

Of Rodanthe, the article said, “Made famous by the romantic Nicholas Sparks novel, Nights in Rodanthe (which was turned into a movie starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane), this quiet beach in the Outer Banks provides the perfect backdrop for real-life romance. The windswept coastline is dotted with cottages, and the skies are filled with rare birds like white pelicans, thanks to a wildlife refuge bordering the town. The fishing pier is a beautiful spot to watch the crashing waves (some of the biggest on the East Coast), and it’s also popular for stargazing beneath some of the darkest skies east of the Mississippi.”

Bodie Lighthouse on Bodie Island is among USA Today’s “10 best lighthouses around the USA.” A lighthouse website and app creator, Kraig Anderson first took a trip to see a lighthouse in North Carolina more than a decade ago, and has since visited every beacon in the country – that’s more than 750 depending how you define them. Of Bodie Island, the article notes, “This 156-foot Outer Banks beacon is often overshadowed by the nearby Cape Hatteras lighthouse, located on the same National Seashore. But its renovation last year, which opened the tower for climbing, makes it a must-see. ‘It’s stunning,’ Anderson says, and one of many standouts in the region. ‘The Outer Banks has the premier collection of lighthouses in the United States.’”
