What is the OBX?

The OBX stands for the Outer Banks and are a 200 mile string of barrier islands. You will often hear local's use the term "life on a sandbar" to explain the unique experience of living in the Outer Banks. Folks who love the OBX, love it for its epic surf, endless pristine beaches, amazing seafood and laidback local vibe. 

What to eat: Outer Banks Seafood Market


Benefiting from the Atlantic and two major North American currents (The Gulf Stream + Labrador Current), the OBX is a seafood lover's paradise. Grill or cook up your favorite seafood from fish fish, green tail shrimp, blue crab, oysters plus more from any of the deliscious local markets. Carawan's Seafood, O'Neal's Seafood Harvest, and Billy's are our favorite! But hey, sometimes on vacation we don't want to cook! The Outer Banks has plenty of cafe's and restarants for all taste buds to fall in love with.
