Now that winter has really set in, dreams of summer can’t be far behind. With temperatures even here on the Outer Banks failing to get to the freezing mark and 20 mph wind from the north, it’s going to be two day of dreaming of warm sunshine and soft sand.

There are many reasons why the Outer Banks is chosen time after time as one of America’s favorite family vacation destinations. The sand, the sea and the sunshine are certainly part of it, but there are so many activities ideal for the whole family that one week or even two weeks are hardly adequate to experience even a small part of what the there is to offer.

We can’t possibly list everything there is to do, but here’s a small sampling of activities to do other than soaking in some rays on a beautiful ocean beach.

Live theatre—the Lost Colony is the oldest outdoor theater production in the country; surfing and surf lessons; flying a kite; climb a lighthouse or three; go kayaking on the sound. 

This is just a partial list, and a very partial one at that, but it gives some idea of what a great place the Outer Banks is for a family vacation.
