Planning a trip to the Outer Banks?  Speaking from experience, you can almost always rent a house on the beach, cheaper than you can book a hotel on the beach - Provided you are staying for at least five days.  Another plus, take some more of the family or split the costs with another couple of family. Look around and you can find some great bargains.  Traveling soon?  Don't worry, great last minute deals can be found as well. 

A few minutes searching the internet can save some real money.

Good Journeys!

Everytime I visit OBX, there has to be a trip to Awful Arthur's Oyster Bar (2106 N Virginia Dare Trail, Kill Devil Hills 252-441-5955). Their seafood selection is fresh, local and abundant. Always served with a smile. Great for couples or family groups.

The Outer Banks is one of my favorite places in ever.  Check out Dirty Dicks Crab House.  They have the best crab legs and awesome souvenir t-shirts.  There are 2 locations in the OBX one at milepost 9.5 and one on Highway 12 near the Avon Pier.  ENJOY!
