Outer Banks History

The Outer Banks has much to offer. We are America's Birthplace, home to four distinct lighthouses, the site of the Wright Brothers' first flight, the largest sand dunes on the East Coast - Jockeys Ridge State Park, the Graveyard of the Atlantic, the new Roanoke Island Festival Park, and a host of family activities including hang gliding, bird watching, museums, art galleries, drama, kayaking, fishing, windsurfing, and more!
