The OBX holds a special place in our hearts as it is unlike most vacation destinations in that it is relatively undeveloped. Of course there are the stereotypical mini golf places, restaurants and ice cream shops galore, and those beach trinket places but for the most part, when you go there, you go for the beach. To be honest, hubby and I kind of hate the beach. The boys could stay there all day everyday so we try to find balance between beach days and adventure days. Even after multiple visits a year to Nags Head, we still haven’t been to every adventure spot but I’ll list them anyway and fill in the blog posts as we cross them off our list.
I’ve roughly ordered them by location, North to South.
