About the outer banks
The Outer Banks (also known as OBX) is a 200-mile (320-km) long string of narrow barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina, beginning in the southeastern corner of Virginia Beach on the east coast of the United States. They cover approximately half the northern North Carolina coastline, separating the Currituck Sound, Albemarle Sound, and Pamlico Sound from the Atlantic Ocean. The Outer Banks is a major tourist destination and is known for its temperate climate and wide expanse of open beachfront.

Most items you will need, such as clothing or personal toiletries, are available on the Outer Banks at reasonable prices. In fact, a major part of the tourist industry relates to shopping areas and stores oriented to the tourist trade. If you choose to travel lightly and purchase some of your clothing or other items on arrival, you should encounter no problems. Prices for food, clothing and personal items will be reasonable and not much higher than anywhere else in the country. Prices for items that are targeted to the tourist population may be more expensive.
