A peek into the Outer Banks
As far back as 1526, and quite likely even before then, the Outer Banks were known as a dangerous area for ships. Since that time, when the first records were put down, more than 1,000 ships have sunk there, and as a result, the area is sometimes referred to as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Of course, this has not provided a very attractive draw to the captains of many ships, unless they were feeling particularly daring, but it does provide intriguing scuba diving opportunities today.
In 1900, the Wright Brothers chose the area to fly and experiment with their planes. It was the ideal spot due to its sparse population and the sand dunes along the coast. Though much has changed over the years, the area is still a favorite for those looking to kite surf, paraglide, or hand glide. And while sky enthusiasts are flying high, taking in the view, they might just spot some wild ponies wandering the coast. These magnificent animals are evidence of their ancestors, great Spanish Mustangs, who managed to survive shipwrecks as far back as the 1500s.
There are many reasons to visit the Outer Banks. Whatever yours happens to be, know that you will be able to see and do plenty, and that you will have a wonderful array of options for unique places to stay.
