Fun in the Sun in Duck
Duck is the perfect place for an Outer Banks getaway, for so many reasons. The town itself is family friendly, with great amenities like a playground, public canoe/kayak launch, and the town boardwalk which winds through coastal marshland, passing by cute shops along the way. You can deepen your relaxation with a massage or facial at Aqua Spa, where the views of Currituck Sound will help you unwind even further. You can also hop aboard Vineyard Voyage for a unique winery tour that you reach with a boat trip across the Sound. Later on, don’t forget to stop at Duck Donuts, the original location where you can create your own delicious donut masterpiece!
If lounging on the beach isn’t enough to keep you entertained, there are tons of adventures waiting just offshore! Stop by Nor’Banks Water Sports and marvel at their catalog of offerings: have you ever wanted to learn to stand-up paddle or sail? Now’s your chance, as the Outer Banks is a stellar ocean sports destination. If it’s heart-pounding excitement you’re after, go parasailing, water skiing, or tubing. If you’d prefer to kick back and chill, rent a pontoon boat for the day, or enjoy the sunset on a romantic catamaran cruise. The choice is yours!
If you’d prefer a guided experience, Coastal Kayak Touring Company is ready to provide the best. They offer kayak and SUP tours of numerous local wildlife sanctuaries, as well as crabbing and fishing tours. Head to Kitty Hawk Maritime Forest & Marsh on a SUP and get a great workout while exploring the unique ecosystem; alternatively, go on a kayak tour of Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge, and learn about the moonshiners who once lived hidden in the area, while watching out for alligators! You can even take a full moon kayak tour and experience the romance of the Sound at night.
Duck is also a fabulous place to enjoy from the back of a bicycle. Bring your own if you can, as local rental companies tend to sell out well in advance. The main road through the Outer Banks, NC-12, has a wide shoulder with plenty of room for bicycles. Additionally, there are lots of smaller roads to explore, and you can easily spend a wonderful day pedaling either north or south from Duck town, stopping along the way for beach visits, snack stops, and photo ops.

Stop by Sunset Grille & Raw Bar for fresh seafood with Caribbean flair, or at Aqua Restaurant for modern American cuisine and delicious daily fish specials. When you want to keep it low-key, Duck also has classic staples like pizza and burgers to choose from.
