Food scene

great place to grab a cup of coffee and/or a snack at anytime of day. Super close to the hideaway, about a 4 or 5 minute bike ride. You don't need to cross the highway making this stop very convenient.

Great local small restaurant located down Colington Rd. Food is always fresh and delicious. with great daily specials. We like siting on the front screened in porch as long as it isn't too hot or cold. Otherwise head inside. Since the place is small, reservations are encouraged.

An Outer Banks favorite of just about anyone I know to whom I have recommended. WIne, cheese, charcuterie, small dishes. A hip place to hang out and also a good place to pick up a bottle of wine or some craft beer to go.

Need a quick taco and a beer after the beach? I know, I do too. This is our go to spot for reasonably priced tacos, burritos, etc. just across the Kill Devil Hills line in North Nags Head. Run by a couple of super nice Mexican ladies that always keep things fresh and delicious.

The oldest Thai restaurant on the beach is also probably our favorite. Casual and beachy atmosphere combines with flavorful and spicy Thai food! In Kill Devil Hills on the beach rd., close to the Hideaway.

If you are looking for 'the' classic Outer Banks restaurant, Sam and Omie's is the place! Located just across the street from Jennette's Pier (also a fun destination) , uber casual, super friendly. Get the Hatteras clam chowder.

Want some pizza or pasta but don't want to venture far from the Hideaway? We don't blame you! Great spot for pizza, highly recommend the Margherita. Avoid the highway, Turn left at the sound as you leave the Hideaway, take another left at Third street and and right at the shopping center at the end before the light.

Probably our 'go to" spot most of the time when we have visitors. Great nightly specials! If you are going to KDH Grill, go early! They get busy and they sell out of their nightly specials pretty quickly.

Probably our favorite of the classic older restaurants in Nags Head, Tale of The Whale is a sound front restaurant with great views of the Roanoke sound and delicious seafood. Highly recommended. If you are trying to save a few dollars they usually run an "early bird" special with a discount for those seated by a certain time. Please call them to confirm that offer and time.

The Country Deli is long time Outer Banks deli, but this is their new and improved location in Kill Devil Hills, just north of the Nags Head line. The have big and delicious subs and sandwiches. I like the philly cheesesteaks. If you are craving a beer with your sub, The Buffalo City Jug Shop is next door and you can get one to go. *See Jug City review

This is a shop with many taps as well as beer to go. Refill your growler, grab a pint or two and have some nice conversation, or get some beers to go. The name Buffalo City refers to the now extinct town of the same name that was a logging and moonshine town located on the Dare County mainland at a site which is now known as East Lake. It was at one time the largest population center in Dare County with around 3000 residents.

This is your GO TO place to buy craft beer, wine, sake, and cigars while staying at the Hideaway. If you want, you can easily navigate to this store on the bikes without crossing the big highway! Highly recommended. By car you are about 2 or 3 minutes away.

Neighborhoods

This where you are! Technically the hideaway is in North Kill Devil Hills (the best part lol) and close to just about everything. You are roughly equal distance to Corolla/Corova as to locations on Hatteras island. So as a base of exploration, Kill Devil Hills is the best area of the Outer Banks. The really great thing about this neighborhood in particular is the easy access to beaches and to the miles of bike path along Bay drive.

This is probably the closest lighthouse to the HIdeaway. After you climb this one you will experience breathtaking views of the marsh and views towards the Atlantic. Easy access to this park from Kill Devil Hills.

If you are picking one lighthouse to visit, this is definitely the most iconic. Tallest lighthouse on the east coast and adjacent to Cape Hatteras seashore. If you have a 4 X 4 vehicle, you can take the ramp onto the beach here and drive out to Cape Point, a spectacular spit of land that juts out into the ocean. Truly a breathtaking place to spend the day or a few hours.

Very cool lighthouse that you can pay to climb. Gives you a really good bird's eye view of north Corolla. Adjacent to the lighthouse is the Whalehead Club, a former hunting lodge that has grounds you can walk around or picnic on. There is also a wildlife museum on site.

A must do if you are staying in Kill Devil Hills. Easy drive from the Hideaway if you want to park and walk around, but also accessible very easily by bike as there is a back way that takes you through the neighborhoods. Ask, I'll tell you how to get there.

Really nice small aquarium. This is a good spot to head to if you want to learn about sea life and nature around the Outer Banks. Perfect spot to head to on a rainy or cloudy day. Just be aware that on those days others may have the same idea.

Pea Island is just the northern most part of Hatteras island. Immediately after crossing the Basnight Bridge to Hatteras you will be in the Pea island area. There is no development here but there are great beaches that are seldom used even in summer. Go here if you need some solitude and want to enjoy the beach in complete peace. You can park anywhere along the highway. Simply pull all the way off the road, lock your car and head across the dune to the beach. Caution: Be careful parking in deep sand. If you have a 4 X 4 vehicle you will be fine, but if your vehicle is 2 wheel drive, make sure not to completely pull off the pavement. Always keep a couple of wheels on the pavement so your car has the traction to get out of the sand. Be careful about this. Extraction services are expensive!

Easy drive to the tallest sanddune on the East Coast. My recommendation, go before sunset (evening) and watch the sunset from the top. It will much cooler at that time of day and the views and colors are spectacular. Be prepared for a mild workout climbing the dune.

Really fun excursion to do if you want to experience a couple relaxing hours on the sound. You will learn a little about the Outer Banks, see Andy Griffith's estate from the water and hopefully experience a beautiful sunset from the sailboat. This is not a strenuous activity so older guests can enjoy as easily as younger ones. This would be a good way to end the day of sightseeing on Roanoke island.

Public Beach and Sound Access - Follow the link below!

https://www.outerbanks.org/plan-your-trip/beaches/beach-and-sound-accesses/ All public beach accesses and sound accesses in Dare County (and Currituck County) are FREE. Parking at some accesses in high season will fill up quickly in the morning! Be prepared. If one access is full, usually you can ride south or north until you find one with spaces. Be aware that accesses with facilities such as a shower or bathrooms will tend to fill up quicker than the more primitive accesses. Southern Shores and Duck have accesses but they are NOT PUBLIC.
