Historic Coast Guard Station turned restaurant and bar is legendary and one of the oldest establishments in Kitty Hawk. It is located across the street from the beach offering ocean view from Outdoor Deck and some indoor tables. The u-shaped bar is a fun place to eat drink and interact with locals and tourists. Large menu offers something for everyone. The gift shop, offering souvenirs, jewelry, beach related iitems and a unique selection of pelican iitems making it one of my favorite shops because I am a collector of pelicans.

Located across the Wright Brothers Bridge, just 5 minutes away, is the only Indian restaurant within 70 miles of the OBX. Open for lunch and dinner, the food is flavorful, a good value and different from the mostly seafood options on the beach. Food may be ordered for take out but the unique view of the sound and our neighborhood, can only be appreciated when dining indoors or on the outdoor deck. Our favorite dishes include lamb rogan josh, salmon tandoori, chicken lettuce wrap and garlic naan.

Waterfront dining in Duck all day - lunch and dinner. We like the caluliflower appetizer and the bowls. Everything is good here. They have outdoor deck and under the tent seating.

Intimate dining with some outdoor under umbrella seating. We have several favorites on the brunch/breakfast menu (seafood benedict is one) although you can't go wrong with any meal here. Located in a small building on the west side of Duck Road, you would probably overlook it, but the atmosphere, service and fun signature cocktails will win you over.

A relatively newcomer to the Outer Banks, Noosa has become one of our favorite places for dinner. They are also open for lunch but am not familiar with that menu. Dinner menu includes a unique variety of appetizers (we love the octopus and Ma's meatballs) and a house or other salads. A couple apps or an app and salad are a very satisfying meal. They offer a nice mix of seafood and meat (vegan as well) entrees and a Prime rib dinner only on the weekend. The dining area is comfortable but can get a bit loud when they're busy. They have outdoor seating. Their staff is welcoming and attentive. Located @ MP 9 it's worth the drive and as of this writing they take reservations - not common for OBX establishments.

Shopping

If you are a thrifter then I suggest you visit one time while you are here - you never know what treasure you may find here.. One of a dozen thrift stores located on the island, the Hotline stores were the original thrift stores. Hotline Too, Hotline Pink's sister store, is located in Nags Head. All renevues support home for battered women in the area. Many items in the Seagulls Nest were purchased from the Hotline stores.

Sightseeing

This is what Kitty Hawk and the Outer Banks are famous for. So if you have or want to take time from the beach this is a great place to take your fur baby as well. The memorial offers indoor and outdoor exhibits. You can forgo the indoor museum and walk around the park and up the hill to the monument. Once atop, the 360 degree view is magnificent. I think that you will agree that the walk to the top is worth it!

We lived here almost 20 years before we went on this tour and all agreed that it was a must see if you have the time in your vacation schedule! The wild horses in Corolla roam wild among the dunes and the neighborhoods of cottages. They are descendants of a group of horses that escaped off a Spanish ship in the 15 or 16 hundreds. While you are in corolla , make a day of it and go to the Whalehead Club and the Corolla Light house. https://wildhorsetour.com/
