Why You Should Fly to the Outer Banks

Running parallel to the coastline for almost 100 miles, North Carolina’s Outer Banks is a system of fragile and shifting sand bars, islands and waterways. Dotted with characterful towns, protected national shoreline and linked by bridges and ferries, this is a unique landscape that’s just begging to be explored.

When to Book Flights to the Outer Banks
