A Local's Guide to Nags Head

Choosing where to spend family vacations can be tricky and finding somewhere that is conveniently located and offers everything you need for a week or two in the sun is hard work.

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.

It has been a popular vacation destination since 1830 and Jockey’s Ridge is now the only sand dunes left undeveloped. These dunes are the first thing that were seen by explorers landing in America to set up colonies.

The Jockey Ridge State Park is a must visit for all tourists in the area. This is the largest sand dune on the east coast and the shifting sands have changed the landscape over decades – even burying a miniature golf course. It is these ups and downs in the landscape that mean so many people come back year after year. Tidal pools are created and filled in, wildlife is moved and the area changes shape.

The park is also a really popular spot for hang gliders and kite fliers who take advantage of the coastal breezes. 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.

History lovers can check out the historic cottages that overlook Nags Head Beach. There are also three piers for fishing -- Nags Head Pier, Jennette's Pier and Outer Banks Pier.

For children, there are miniature golf courses and small amusements such as go-karts and bumper cars. Older golfers can take a trip to the Nags Head Golf Links for a round or two. The incredible Scottish-links style course overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and offers a private swimming pool and restaurant. And as with any beachside town, there is plenty of sunbathing and swimming for visitors to enjoy.

There are plenty of Nags Head offers which help you get homes in Nags Head with views of the ocean for a bargain price. September and October are the best times to visit although there tends to be great weather all year round.

Homes in Nags Head come with plenty of great features. From a private hot tub, access to community pools and beach access there is something to suit every group.
