Disney’s Family Fun magazine recently awarded the Outer Banks the 1º slot for best beach in the Southeast. Editors of Family Fun said, "In North Carolina’s Outer Banks, natural beauty, plus a range of activities, from mini golf to ferry rides, draws families back year after year".
The locals on the Outer Banks commonly divide the island into three main sections; Hatteras Island, Roanoke Island/Dare Mainland and the Northern Beaches. Roanoke Island/Dare Mainland, home to the first English speaking settlement, runs East to West on Hwy 64/264, and is made up of Manteo, Wanchese, Manns Harbor and Stumpy Point. This island is not bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, but instead is situated on the Roanoke and Croatan Sounds. Finally, the Northern Beaches stretching from Hwy 12 in Sanderling pass through Duck and Southern Shores, and travel down U.S. 158 Bypass and include, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head. Also surrounded by water, these barrier islands are bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the East and the Albermarle Sound on the West.
As the Outer Banks of North Carolina offers visitors more enjoyment and relaxation every year, routes to and from the area continue to be improved and expanded. The new Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel in Hampton Roads, Virginia, and the expansion from two to four lanes of the Wright Memorial Bridge, linking Currituck to the Outer Banks, make access more convenient.
