If You Ever Have Trouble Explaining Why Our Outer Banks Barrier Islands Are So Special, Consider Sharing This Video Narrated By Meryl Streep and John Grabowska.
In a 10 Best featured article for USA Today, “10 Best 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.”
