Nags Head, North Carolina
Nags Head is a lovely seaside resort town that in recent years has also become a community with shops, stores, and restaurants staying open year-round. When many people refer to the Outer Banks, they use the term "Nags Head" to generically describe the area. The truth of the matter is that this small town was first a physical location on a map, then a township, and finally, the most recognizable of all the northern Outer Banks vacation destinations. Nags Head is also home to a lovely golf course and Jockey’s Ridge State Park. You can enjoy water sports and hang-gliding as well as some of the best fishing in the world, both in the shallow sounds and from the beach as well as off-shore with some of the local sport fishing boats.
