USA Today’s “10Best” Visits the Alluring Outer Banks!

In a 10Best featured article for USA Today, "10Best Visits the Alluring Outer Banks." The article notes, "When it comes to beaching it, everybody is different. Some sun worshippers long for action, a busy Boardwalk and plenty of after-dark activity. Then, there's the Outer Banks. This series of North Carolina barrier islands attracts a mellower crowd. A strip of laid back beach towns connected by bridges, the Outer Banks, or OBX for short, is home to about 60,000 residents year-round. That number nears 500,000 during the summer and fall, vacationers drawn by powdery sand, stellar fishing and a shallow coastline dotted with historic wrecks. Most stay in the McMansions that line the beaches; six, seven and eight-bedroom homes that can easily host a multi-gen family getaway, a girlfriend's weekend or a sporty man-cation."

Jockey’s Ridge among ’50 States, 50 Spots Natural Wonders’

As the USA gears up for its birthday celebration, CNN highlights its favorite natural wonders across the nation in "50 States, 50 Spots Natural Wonders."

For North Carolina, CNN selected Jockey's Ridge at Nags Head, noting, "The dunes of Jockey's Ridge change with the wind, taking on the character of deserts: hot, bright and windy. Despite the volatile terrain, the tallest sand dune on the country's Atlantic Coast provides a scenic perch for sunsets. Temperatures can get high, with the sand often much hotter than the air. For the full experience of the 80- to 100-foot dune, try kiteboarding or sandboarding, which are allowed by permit during parts of the year in a designated area. Hang-gliding lessons are also available. The park on Nags Head on North Carolina's Outer Banks is bounded by Roanoke Sound to the west, home to big cordgrass, black needlerush, marsh pennywort, marsh-elder, cattail and lance-leaved sagittaria. A daylight-use park only, morning visitors might also spy the tracks of nocturnal animals such as foxes and lizards across the sand."
