Plenty of activities are going on for this Fourth of July on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. If you’re planning on being here during the festivities we can set you up in a Outer Banks beach house rental where you can attend any of the activities taking place around the area. Some areas will have all day festivities to celebrate Independence Day.

It’s entirely possible you’ll be able to enjoy the fireworks from your Outer Banks beach house rental if you’re located near an area that has a scheduled display taking place. Watching the fireworks from the beach provides you with a front row seat — pack your picnic dinner, spread a blanket out or set up a lounge chair and enjoy the evening on the beach.
