My wife and I have been vacationing on the Outerbanks for the past ten years. We have frequented many restaurants and have found two spots to always be fabulous! The Windmill Restaurant in Nags Head and JK's Steakhouse in Kitty Hawk. Both restaurants are casual fine dining establishments. The Windmill has the best salmon in OBX. JK's has the best steaks and a great wine list.

We are coming in July for the first time to vist Kill Devils Hill, NC one of our party spouse can't make the whole trip, is there a flight he can take from Baltimore, MD or Philadelphia, PA to the OB and the travel time to go pick him up is less than an hour. Or do you have another suggestion, they are trying to void bringing 2 cars down. This would be a one way trip. Help?

Category: Fishing Tips & Info
I've fished up and down the East Coast, and the Gulf Coast of Florida. My dearesr memories and most treasured days were spent on the piers of the Outer Banks. I remember one fine Autumn day in September 1981 or 1982, when the water was pretty blue all the way into the beach and the menhaden were right in the surf and the Kings were right after them! There were actually Kings skying in the breakers! There were 22 or 23 Kings actually landed on the Nags Head Pier, many more lost, of course, and several cobia caught as well. I've never seen it like that before or since. If you can top that, I'd like to hear about it!

Our home is a stone farmhouse dated to our knowledge to 1780. We are in the heart of Amish country. Located in Southern Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Our neighbors are Amish. Nothing but fields. Short drive(15min.) to antiques, tourist area, amusement parks,and huge outlet shopping. Would love to trade homes for Christmas holiday or June vacation.

We have been vacationing in OBX for many years. This year our son wants to vacation there for his senior week after graduation. Most realtors have age requirements for rentals. I would appreciate any suggestions for teens who want to vacation in the Outer Banks.

I grew up in Va. Beach and started coming to the Outer Banks in 1969. After more than 30 years, my wife and I still spend 3 – 4 weeks a year in the summer and fall cruising the beaches from Ocracoke to Corova. I am of the opinion that if you travel in an area where tourists visit year round, you need to find the places that the locals frequent to enjoy a good meal at a reasonable price. It’s the same when I travel for work. If I see a County or State Police patrol car parked outside an eatery along the road or in a small town, it’s almost a guarantee that I can get a good meal where I might not have stopped at all. Over the years, I have eaten in a lot of places on the Outer Banks, everything from the “family buffets” to the expensive “fine dining” while always looking for that good local restaurant. A couple of years ago, a friend who lives in Kitty Hawk took my wife and I to The Harbor Grill in Colington for dinner. Well, he turned out to be my local patrol car. Although The Grill (as the locals call it) may have been a little smaller than some of the factory restaurants on the main road, we had finally found a restaurant with a very pleasant and neighborly atmosphere that served great food. Whether we are passing through or staying in the area, it has become our favorite eatery at the beach. (I ate there last week after drum fishing in Buxton – a bowl of chowder and the marinated grilled chicken – both were superb). Let me say that by now we have tried just about everything on the menu from steak, seafood, chicken, pasta and probably most of their specials. You have my assurance it’s all very good. You get generous portions with reasonable prices and a friendly and helpful wait staff. The Harbor Grill is best known for their seafood chowder – winner of the Peoples Choice Award and trust me on this – that award is well deserved. Also, when available, try the coconut shrimp appetizer. It comes in a coconut rum sauce and is my all time favorite. They have a variety of nightly specials and homemade desserts that the chef prepares (from what I can gather, I think she use to cook at an embassy in D.C.). It never seems to fail that each time we stop in, there is something new and even more important, very tasty on the specials board. I highly recommend The Grill for its excellent food and friendly dining experience and do yourself a favor, save room for dessert.

Hi! I have been going to the Outer banks all my life. I love it there so much and want to share the great experience with my friends. I am finally old enough to bring my friends along and have a great time just hanging out( NOT having wild parties), but i am having trouble finding a rental home, that will rent to "non-family groups", we are a great group and would NOT harm the house we would be staying at in any way. If anyone has any infromation on where i could find a decent rental house that will rent to a non-family group, please let me know! Thanks so much! Emma

All the rental companies I call will only rent to families. Do you have any suggestions on how we can rent a place? We are able to provide the required security deposit and all other financial protection so I am a little perplexed...

Nags Head Realty has Ocean front townhouses called the Windjammer right in Nags Head. They have wonderful ocean views and have everything you need. I own one of the units but we are closed for the season. Some of the others are open. You can find Nags Head Realty on the web.

Breakfast) Diamond Shoals, just up in the road in Avon is the Mad Crabber and if you venture over to Ocracoke be sure to eat at the Jolly Roger...can't be beat!

Hello again. Back in September I listed a motel to stay in around the Buxton/Hatteras Village area that was really nice and affordable. It was the Sea Gull Motel. That motel is no longer there. It was one of the fatalities from Isabel. Also, if the gentelman who asked about finding a NICE beach to stay at on the Outer Banks is on today, all I have to say is... ALL OF THE BEACHES ARE NICE!!!!!

Hi, I started going to the Outerbanks about 10 - 12 years ago. about 1991-92. We were in a group of 24 mainly everyone was family although a few were friends. We rented 2 homes in Carolla, (Whaleshead beach). I must say that Whaleshead beach was "THE NICEST" beach on the island. In our opinion. I have to add that ALL the beaches on the island are the best. We like to move around from Carolla to Nagshead. Its all #1 to us. I will live there one day! As I said, There were alot of us and everyone did their own thing. Parasailing, shopping, canoeing, Boogie boarding, digging in the sand, getting up early to watch the sunrise, sitting on top of a sand dune Watching the sunset, watching the dolphins every morning and evening, being with true friends and family, my favorite hanging out on the beach. The restaurants on the Island are very simular. They all from what I have experianced are really good. I do make sure when I go to the Island I stop in at the Jolly Roger restaurant. I think its the best, and the people are very friendly. If you go there you will not be sorry. Another of my favorite things that happenes every time you go onto the Island is, The great smell of the ocean, the air just comes over you and puts you in a peaceful serine feeling and it lasts however long you are there.

I want to let everyone know what a friendly wonderful place me and my husband found on the outer banks! If you are planning a family vacation, this is the best place. White beaches and friendly locals added to an already grand adventure for us. Our home through Village Realty provided great comforts, including a computer...yeah!! The best resturant by far was Carolina Seafood in Kill Devil Hills. Our waitress was Denise, who needs to rethink her calling in life! Not only was the food great, but our service was wonderful! Denise can sure keep our glasses fulland our tummys happy, but she also gave us great a comic show with each refill, plate pick up, bowling dumping, and crabs delievery! She was jonny on the spot for all our needs and also with her jokes and the way she made us feel like close friends. I only can say one bad thing about our trip to carolina seafood and that is being shocked at what people leave for a tip. I was able to observe a small tip on a table felt by the last tentants. We left more, not for thegreat service and great food but also because we felt sorry for our waitress who gave these people the same service but felt that five dollars was good enough for her. Remember tipping for these people means a pay check! Tip like you should or dont eat out! 15% of a check is what you should leave, not 5%. 2thumbs up to the Outer banks of NC and all the people who treated us like family.

I have been looking at several sites about the devastation the banks. It truly hurts to see it. I haven't been back in 4 years. We used to stay at the Pebble Beach Hotel in Nags Head. The last time I called for reservations, this was after Hurricane Dennis, I found out the last two cottages had been demolished and the hotel was being torn down for a new something. Heart breaking. I have stayed their many times and loved the old nags head charm of that area and no dunes. I am glad I got to take my son there. Once when he was 2 ( in the middle of gale warnings) and again when he was 4. He loves it. I will have to get back soon and hope that all is not gone this time. I had a feeling when I saw that category 5 out in the ocean, where it was headed.

My Dad grew up in Boston and New Bedford near the water. As a child, no matter how little we had, my father would figure out a way to go to Cape Cod. I was in Nirvana. As the Cape got overdeveloped and we moved to the Baltimore area I assumed there would never be a repeat of those seashore sensations (notice I didn't use the word beach....Atlantic City is a beach but a seashore?). Then returning from Chicago in the mid-70's my parents told me about a place called Duck, NC. I went down in October 1978 and have been going back ever since. I do not need to convey my memories because they have all been said by others here. I am humbled and in envy of what I am reading. However if you will permit me to convey briefly an experience.................I work in a government agency and an elderly gentleman requested my assistance. It was Summer 2000 and I had just returned from 2 weeks in Salvo,Hatteras. This gentleman had a t-shirt on which depicted Outer Banks lighthouses so I asked him how often he traveled there. "Never" he gruffly said...his daughter had sent him the shirt. He did tell me however that he had been there once. During World War 2 the oil tanker he was a crewmember on had been torpedoed and sunk off Hatteras. Though half the crew perished he had been rescued. Listening to him describe the incident made you feel like you were there on the ship. I asked him the ship's name and then went back to my office to check my "Graveyard of the Atlantic" map. There it was...his ship. I showed him the map and he beamed like a child and seemed to be lost momentarily. I stood there in awe of this coincidence. I pray the Outer Banks, especially Hatteras and Ocracoke don't go the way of Cape Cod.

Hello everyone... I am from PA and am going down to Avon for the Red Drum Tournament that Frank and Fran are holding. The latest I've ever been to the Outer Banks was during the last week of September. It was a nice temperature but rained alot. I will be coming down October 22 to the 26th and need to know what to wear. I will be fishing alomost all day and alot during the night time and wee hours of the morning. Is it usually cold and windy during this time of year? I know weather varies but on average. I noticed that alot of fisherman wear the waders. Is that recommended? I'm only a 20 year old female and I am not that experienced in catching big fish either. I just need to know what clothing to bring along down there. Long sleeve shirts and long pants? It would be really nice if it was still warm enough to wear shorts at least. That way I wouldn't have to worry about my pant legs getting wet while casting or if the waves splash me. Any suggestions? Anybody????????? Thanks~

I have been comming to the outer banks for over 30 years to vacation and love it. On my most recent visit i had the most amazing meal at a new restaurant called meridian 42. I have been home now for a week and i am still dreaming of the crab bruschetta with thyme butter, fresh tomatos and baby arugula. I also had the pinenut encrusted tuna with caramelized apple, bacon and brie ravioli, grilled onion salad with balsamic syrup and truffle oil. The restaurant it self is beautiful. Nicely decorated with rich medeterainian colors, dark teak tabels and chairs and an open kitchen where you can watch the chef prepare your meal. I so much enjoyed this place! I can't say enough about it. It is a must do on the outer banks. And as always the fish sandwiches and shakes at john's were awesome! Untill next year... Rob peery charlottesville va.

My husband and I have visited the outer banks every year for the past 5 years and usually visit in Sept. The weather is mild, and there aren't as many people. We usually stay at the Lighthouse View in Buxton. It is always clean, the rooms are lovely. This year we are looking for a cottage on the beach if at all possible, and would like to stay in the Nags Head area, but are wary, since our last visit, we noticed some houses were actually in the water at high tide. I am checking out places and realty companies listed within these postings, but we definiately want a very clean facility with easy access to the beach. We once stayed at the Sea Oatel in Nag's head I think it was..I don't recommend it. Ahhhh the outer banks..so much to do..so little time!!

I agree the Howards Pub was nothing special. It has great atomosphere, but we went there for an early dinner last week, and the server was absolutley miserable. The hostess who showed us to our table was also miserable. On the menu they boast about their incredible crab cakes. They are the worst I have ever had. I am not even sure they put crab meat in them. The best are Timbuktu in Hanover Md. Nothing but Crab. Anyway there were 7 of us in our party, and we all agreed that the food was just ok and nothing special. Would not eat there again. The other thing is that you cannot get a coctail or mixed drink there. Only beer.

We have only been to the Outer Banks the last two years, and so far we have yet to find a good restaraunt. We decided NEVER to eat at another buffett, because the few we tried were awful. Jimmy's and George's Junction had poor quality food, and we were very dissapointed. Especially Jimmy's. If you didn't get the crab claws, the selection was bad. And to serve clams casino on aluminum foil shaped like a clam, is pretty tacky. Stack M' high pancakes was a strange set up. It is more of an assembly line than a restaraunt. The people working there are very nice, but we didnt like the way you order in line and then sit down and wait for your food.

Beware the policies of Sun Realty on the Banks. Through their website we booked one of their rental properties. All was what it was advertised until we got a look at the "lighted volleyball court". This turned out to be a volleyball dune. Yes there was a net but the court had long been a sand dune. Complete with decorative grass. When we called to complain we were told to bring it up at check out. At check out we were told no one was there to handle it. Instead of getting our security deposit back we were told the house had not been cleaned. Mainly the beds had not been made. Understandable except we paid $90 to have maid service provided by Sun Realty. We even left a $20 tip for the maids! We are not deadbeats. We are all responsible college educated middle aged adults who stayed at the house. When we called to discuss the issues we were told that we were to only respond in writing. What kind of service is this? We will not take a rental with Sun Realty again and I would encourage others to ask direct questions regarding the condition of the house upon departure. Did I mention the holes in the walls and the ceiling fan that didn't work?

Ate for the first time at New York Pizza Pub in Nags Head. We were totally impressed! Real family atmosphere. The service was excellent and food was terrific. Definitely a taste of New York. (No other pizza compares! but this was the real deal) We also went for dinner and the steaks were delicious as was the shrimp alfredo that I had. Overall a wonderful experience. I will recomment this to everyone I know who visits the Outer Banks area.

I wanted to place my feedback on a place NOT to stay. We booked our vacation with Karichele Realty in Corolla. We rented with Karichele before in Corolla and everything was fine. Unfortunately that was not the case this time. Although we were lucky enough to have a week of beautiful weather the house we rented was a wreck! It was filthy, had not been cleaned in a very long time. There were 15 bags of leaking garbage left there that we had to clean up ourselves as Karichele couldn't be bothered! We even had mold growing on the walls! The hot tub had a scum line in it (which we didn't know till after we used it in the dark!-gross!) and the pool dirty. Items listed in the brochure were missing, such as the crib (important item!) the Sega, and beach cart! We contacted Karichele 5 of the 7 days we were there, even made 3 trips to their office. They basically ignored us! They never came to look at the condition of the house as they promised (until the day we were leaving)and didn't return our calls! I have still not heard any reply from them after two e-mails and sending pictures of the outside mess! The sad part is we have no guarantee we will even receive our $500 security deposit back! They just put the blame on the homeowner for letting someone from their family stay in the home previous to our stay and said any money back is up to them! But it was Karichle's responsibitly to have the home cleaned, hot-tub and pool serviced as stated in the contract. Corolla is a beautiful area and a wonderful place to vacation. I learned the hard way to check with the Better Business Bureau first before booking with a rental company. They have an unsatisfactory record with the BBB due to an unanswered claim, and one that has been resolved. Hopefully ours will be resolved too, but a word of advise.......check out the rental company first! Then go and enjoy the beauty and relaxation of the Outer Banks! I know we will continue to, just not with Karichele Realty!

We just came back from vacation at Carova Beach, Outer Banks nc... It was as always an amazing time. My family has come together every two years to vacation at your beautiful place. We have now decided to come back every year, because we miss it so much on the years that we skip. There is something for everyone there, whether you want action all of the time, or you want peace and quiet. You can find it at the outer banks. I have been to other beaches and there just is no comparison. The Outer Banks is really growing up, but I hope that it still can stay, a quiet get away. Thank you.

I wanted to put my comments out there about my trip to Kitty Hawk the last week in May of this year. We rented a home from Joe Lamb Jr. and Assoc. While at the home we found accomadations were not quite what was advertised. When we called to report this we were basically told that it was unfortunate, but nothing could be done about it. They advertised a playground for the kids and it was so overgrown we could not let the kids play there. They advertised outdoor speakers, but the speaker wires were the wrong type or size or something. The air conditioning did not work. I did not report this since my other complaints fell on deaf ears, but as we left the house the last day an A/C repair van pulled up. Making me believe that they knew the condition of the A/C when we rented the home. I wrote and complained and got no response, but they were quick to keep $75 of my deposit for "extra cleaning". Aside from keeping the part of the deposit, I was angry that I had not gotten any response to my letter. Mr. Hardy told me that he didn't think the letter was something that needed to be responded to. I told him that we vacation in NC every year and that he could rest assured that we would not be using Joe Lamb and Associates again and his response was that he didn't want "filthy" people renting from them anyway. The "filth" we left was a garbage can we did not roll to the street. The manners or lack of them that I have been shown by this company are appauling. I was told that they are not responsible for the things wrong with the house, but yet I was also told that I could not have a letter forwarded to the owners and could not have the owners information. I hope that anyone looking to vacation in the Outer Banks has a better experience than I did and that they spend their money wisely in another rental company's care. Sincerely, Tracy Williams

Category: Remember When...
I remember when Duck was nothing but lonely beaches where you could arrive at dawn and watch the fishermen hauling in their nets with a Jeep onshore. Once they gave my husband and me a nurse shark caught in the net and we spent three hours removing the jawbones from this steely sandpapered creature. Took it home, cleaned it up and had a real conversation piece for many years--even the teeth had teeth! My husband and I frequented the entire Outer Banks from the early '60's until he died in 1976 and it will always be one of my most favorite places. Now I have a Significant Other and am in my seventies; he's 65. He's never been to the Atlantic Ocean and loves fishing and all the quaintness of smelly old wharves and weathered buildings as I recall on Manteo. We're coming to Baltimore on October 10, 2003 to visit my 90-year-old mom and I want to rent a car, drive down to my old haunts on the Outer Banks and Oregon Inlet. I'd like to show my honey what ocenfront really means because the coastal comission in California believes in keeping buildings a good distance from the surf. I'd like to be IN the surf! I'd like to find a motel anywhere along the Outer Banks from Kitty Hawk to Hatteras Island that is very close to the water's edge, has two beds, air conditioning and is clean and under $100 for the nights of October 11, and 12th. I would also be requiring another single room for my sister who will be traveling with us. Please email me with any and all possibilities. If we find what we're looking for we'll gladly confirm it by credit card. I remember eating great breakfasts on the Kitty Hawk fishing pier and can almost smell that fried fish, grits and hush puppies! I would appreciate any places that provide good food and lodging contacting me by either email or snail mail as soon as feasible.Thanks so much! Laura Ireland

We stayed in a lovely inn in the heart of Okracoke 2 years ago, I cannot remember the name of it and nothing looks like it on the web sites that I have searched...It had nice antiques in the rooms, and one thing that struck us was the pillows had little shells sewn on to them, it had a small swimming pool surrounded with plants and flowers and some of the rooms were suites with hot tubs...has anyone got a clue as to where I am talking about, the room we stayed in was about 178.00 in 2001...we would love to come back if we could figure out what it was!

Category: Remember When...
I, too, grew up going to the Outer Banks with my grandparents. AFter I graduated, I didn't return to this wonderful area until I was in my upper 30's with 3 kids of my own. I will never forget seeing my children wonder at all of the beauty of the Outer Banks, as I did when I was a child. I have ticket stubs from the Lost Colony from 1967, when it cost $2.75 for a seat. I remember KFC being the only restaurant in Nags Head, and I remember the wonderful man who owned The Shipwreck gift shop. He used to feed the turtles every evening out back of his shop. I return every year now with my family, and I always bring a picture of granny and grandaddy, who have passed away years ago, but I bring them with me in their picture, so I'm returning the favor they gave me as a child. We stay in Rodanthe, and I cannot wait until we go again this year.

Almost four and a half years ago, I met a man, he was Tall and Funny, Handsome and smart, and he liked the Grateful Dead. Perfect I thought! And then he asked me if I wanted to take a weekend trip to the Outerbanks... I thought, wait a minute I just met you, but I went anyway. It was October, and the weather was perfect. We spent 2 days driving up the coast, taking ferry's to new islands, visiting the light houses. We stayed on Okracoke , and ate at Howards Pub...man the crabs were awesome, and they had a great Blues band. I fell in love with my husband that weekend. The Outerbanks will always hold a special place in my heart. We are coming back to the banks this summer, and we are bringing our new baby girl, I can't wait to let her play in the sand, and watch the sun set!

Could anyone tell me the names of some resturants or shops in the area, is there a grocery store near by, or will we have to do all of the shopping in Nags Head. Also, if anyone knows of any cool shops please let me know, even if they are on another island. Also, are there any bike rental shops that have bikes with baby seats? Our little girl will be 7 months old then, and I would realy like to take her out on a little bike ride. Thanks!! English

-Loved the Cedar Island ferry ride to Ocracoke.
-Took the ATV onto the beach & rode for hours looking for shells & watching the surf fishers.
-Also saw sea turtles nesting on the beach. 
-Ate, partied and danced at Howards Pub 2 nights in a row. Howards had a great band playing that week-end.....I think the name of the Band was "Blanket" played a variety of great music from the 60's (Jimmi Hendrix, Janis Joplin) 70's, and present day rock. I wish I could find more info on this band, THEY ROCKED. I think they were from Washington DC Pass info on if you have any. And Howards food & service was great, I don't care what anyone else writes. I'd go back in a skinny minute.
-Ocracoke is a fun Island to visit. Lots of shops to go in, lots of eating places. 
-Just don't book reservations at the Pelican Lodge (a Bed & Breakfast) A very very big big disappointment!!!! Especially if you get stuck w/ the room on the 3rd floor w/ no bathroom & have to go down to the dungeon (ground floor) to use the thrown (and I mean literally) the toliet is up on a platform about 3 ft. and you have to climb on it. We were totally embarrassed w/ this and felt like the innkeeper really pulled a fast one on us. Not to mention the BR shower looked like it hadn't been cleaned since the middle ages & we had no towels or washclothes to take a bath w/ the next morning and couldn't find the innkeeper anywhere. The innkeeper also runs a aviation business, and is gone most the time running errands. This place just ruined our trip all together. (Our 15th wedding anniversary spent climbing up & down 2 flights of stairs just to go to the "thrown & then no way of taking a bath) 
-But other than that, I loved Ocracoke & would go back. 
-The beach was beutiful and all the islanders were very friendly.

My husband, family & I have been coming down to the Outer Banks since 1992. If we can we try to make it down twice a year. We love it here and plan on moving down when our daughter starts college. We love the pace of life here. The ocean and sound are absolutely beautiful and somehow I always seem like I am a little closer to heaven when I stand on the beach at night at look up at the beautiful stars. We have stayed with many real estate companies, all of which have been wonderful and accomadating. I have to say my favorite is the Village at Nags Head. I just love everything that they have to offer. From ocean to sound, golf lovers, water lovers, and just plain lovers they seem to cater to them all. Our favorite places to eat besides our kitchen where my husband is the best cook, bar none, he can make a mean tuna steak, are: Jimmy's Buffet, Jockey's Ribs, where we celebrate my nephews birthday every year. He loves their mousse for dessert! The Wharf and I love Jolly Rogers! They have the best She Crab soup! We have been to the Lighthouses from Corola to Hatteras. My husband, nephew and my cousin went to the top of Hatteras after it was moved and said the view was breathtaking. We have made a trip to Okracoke which I think was worth the drive. It was beautifual and quaint. Jockey Ridge is beautiful at sunset....and dont forget about the Sunset Cruise on the Sound. I love it all and will be back again this June! Please have a wonderful vacation...Relax and let the Outer Banks soothe what ails you!

I need someone in the area to give a sense of how the Outer Banks might be in September, when I wish to have a wedding ceremony of sorts on the beachfront. We're inviting about seventy people, though even a 75% attendance would be surprising. However, ideally there needs to be a central cluster of accommodations available for everyone possible. The ceremony itself is another issue. Does the idea of such a huge wedding party descending upon the beach on one of those weekends sound do-able? If you think you have a feeling for how it might play out, your comments are gratefully welcome! Thanks, Howard

We have been going to the Outer Banks for many years. It is a wonderful place to take the family. We always rent a house from Southern Shores Realty. We have been very pleased with the beautiful homes we have stayed in. The beach is private, it is a very family oriented place. The ferry to Oracoke Island is fun. The lighthouse at Cape Hatteras is a good choice also. There is so much to do and history there.

I stayed at a great place last year and have booked it again this year. It was ocean front with a pool just steps away. It a townhouse, so I didn't pay the "big" house price. The Windjammer in Nags Head was great. I stayed in Unit V, Lovin' Life. We rented it through Nags Head Realty and it couldn't have been better. I would recommend it to groups of 6 to 8. It was perfect for the 6 of us. There was an ocean view from every window.

We have going to Nags Head for the past 25 years and have finally made the plunge to build a house there. My very favorite restaurant of all time is The Harbor Grill on Colington Island. I have never had anything there I did not like. The chef does wonderful specials and to have the waitress describe them is just as good. I promise this is worth the drive down that little narrow windy road to Colington. A beautiful area off the beaten path.

We are major golfers are looking for middle to upper scale accommodations on the ocean. This will be the first vacation alone in 4 years so we are really looking forward to it. Here is how green I am about the outer banks... I do not even have any idea how to even get there from the frozen tundra of Minneapolis. so I could use any suggestions you might have.

I am interested in visiting the Outer Banks. I am being told there is nothing to do there for children and no boardwalks. I don't care about the boardwalks but can you tell me what there is to do for kids and Adults at night?

We have a beautiful 7000 sq. ft. home w/4 bedrooms, pool and tennis courts located in Alpharetta, a lovely suburb of Atlanta, GA. Convenient to downtown, the best shopping, restaurants, cultural events and nightlife the city has to offer. We would like to trade for a beach house on the Outer Banks one week (Thurs.-Wed.) anytime late July 2003 or August.

Two of my friends and I are trying to find a place to live for the summer in Nags Head. We will all have graduated from Georgia Tech and starting careers in August. We want a small cottage that is affordable. We are accustomed to college budgets, so our living standards are not outrageous. Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

We have a 2 bedroom oceanview condo on Hilton Head Island and would like to exchange a week for a week in the Outer Banks. We would like the week of July 5th. Unfortunately, our place is rented for that week. We have many other weeks open.
