The destination is the perfect place to begin a North Carolina Outer Banks vacation as it is so close to the barrier islands.

The Dare County town is rumored to have been named after one of the Nags Heads on the English coast. Another explanation is that horses (called nags) would be used by shipwreckers to lure boats in too close to the shore where they would run aground and be looted.

A Visitors' Center in the park has a museum includes exhibits on the local environment and there are foxes, squirrels and deer making their home around the state park. Swimmers can take a dip in Nags Head Beach and the Roanoke Sound.

South Nags Head is Bodie’s Island Lighthouse where visitors can climb to look out across the stunning landscape. North of Jockey’s Ridge is the Nags Head Woods Ecological Preserve which is a protected National Natural Landmark.
