Between the seven miles of wide, unspoiled coastline, local galleries and boutiques, world-class eateries, luxurious spas and outdoor activities galore, there’s no shortage of ways to spend your time in Duck.
The big draw to the Outer Banks is, of course, the beach. There’s no denying that the beach here is unlike any other coastline. It’s family-friendly and pristine. Just slide on your flip flops, unroll your beach towel, and voila…instant relaxation!
But what brings vacationers back year after year to Duck is the town itself. This quaint community prides itself on its village feel and Southern charm. The bike paths that line Duck Road are perfect for riding beach cruisers, taking a jog, or simply walking to the coffee shop to grab a cappuccino.
Wind your way through Scarborough Faire, Scarborough Lane or the Boardwalk at the Waterfront Shops, and you’ll encounter out-of-this-world shopping. From hip clothing to upscale home accessories to simple beach accoutrements, you’ll find it all within walking distance of your Duck vacation rental. You won’t want to leave without picking up a treasure or two from Duck’s unique boutiques and galleries.
Dining in Duck will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your stay. Coastal Carolina cuisine is on the menu here: Think local seafood, from tuna to rockfish to softshell crabs, and fresh produce like corn-on-the-cob and strawberries grown right here in eastern North Carolina. Delight in the mouthwatering creations of Duck’s renowned chefs, whether it’s a divine four course meal savored over candlelight or a simple slice of pepperoni pizza and scoop of ice cream on-the-go with the kids.
Pamper yourself in one of Duck’s waterfront spas. Indulge in a facial, couple’s massage or pedicure. Take in the tranquil moments-away from the traffic, e-mail and cell phone of every day life-and enjoy.
Outside of the shopping, dining and pampering, Duck is a nature-lover’s dream. From bird watching to kayaking to biking, the outdoor lifestyle is celebrated here.
Whatever your passion-surfing, fishing, parasailing or jet skiing-water sports abound in Duck. Take a stroll along the soundside boardwalk adjacent to the Town of Duck Municipal Park, an 11-acre maritime forest and willow habitat. Launch a canoe at the public boat ramp and explore the sound’s reedy shoreline. Breathe in the salty air and savor the breathtaking sunsets over the Albemarle Sound.
Whether you’re looking for outdoor adventure, world-class shopping and dining, spa tranquility, or simple day at the beach relaxing with family and friends… Duck is truly a vacationer’s paradise.
