It’s hard to believe that school will be out soon for the kids, and vacations will be here before you know it. Setting out to the Outer Banks this summer is where the fun begins. We at Joe Lamb Jr & Associates want to share with you a few things that you and your family can do here on the OBX during your upcoming visit. Let’s dip into a few of the fun things waiting to be enjoyed and explored. 

Let’s Fly a Kite

Do you remember when you were a child and one of your best family trip highlights was buying a kite and flying it on the beach each evening? For many, that is the one thing from “back in the day” that is every child’s best memory of their trip. Going out just before sunset as the sand has cooled off from the heat, watching your parents run down the sand, and watching as your kite flies up in the sky makes everyones heart flutter. One thing that we know will never go out of “style” is flying a kite with your own family now. Think of the memories you will make together as you run down the beach barefoot and watch the sparkle in your kid’s eyes as they watch their kite fly high.

Hunt for Treasure

Another fun activity that everyone in the family can do is hunt for treasure. While this isn’t the type of treasure that you’d find in a movie, it’s something a little easier to discover. The Outer Banks has many different types of seashells and sea glass that can be found along the shoreline. Many will often think that you can’t find sea glass on the east coast, but it turns up more often than you think. Let the kids use the sea glass or seashells in their sandcastle creations or just collect some to take home with you as a souvenir. 

Fishing

Have you and your family ever experienced fishing here on the Outer Banks? If not, then allow us to tell you how much fun it is for everyone that wants to try and bait a hook. Head on over to one of the many fishing piers located along the Outer Banks to catch some fish, or you can even fish directly from the beach. While you will need an NC Fishing License to fish directly from the surf, it is easy to obtain one. If you choose to fish from one of the piers, you won’t have to worry about the license as they offer daily rates for your family to fish. They also offer rod rentals too, which can be a good thing if you haven’t packed your rod & reels with you. **Please see our page on current Fishing Regulations, Boat Ramp, and Pier & Surf Fishing Information. 

While there are many other things you can do while visiting the Outer Banks this summer, we wanted to share these favorite ones with you. A few other notable mentions on what to do on the island are stargazing from the beach, exploring the OBX on your bikes, exchanging a book at the free library, and so much more. This summer, everyone will be able to pick from a long list of local activities to explore & enjoy here on the Outer Banks. Making memories with your family and friends is always at the top of every vacation to-do list and we hope that you will make memories to last a lifetime summer season!
