With more than 300 miles of coastline, the Outer Banks has stretches of sand that are consistently rated among the top beaches in the world — a perfect setting whether you crave an active vacation or a simple barefoot walk along empty beaches. The long stretch of beaches is a six- or seven-hour drive from Baltimore, and the sense of place can change markedly from one milepost to the next.

From crabbing, fishing and kiteboarding to major historical sites like the Wright Brothers National Memorial, where the duo achieved their dream of flight, North Carolina's Outer Banks has more to offer than long white beaches and warm summer breezes. There's romance in Rodanthe, kites in Kitty Hawk and concerts in Corolla. Best of all, there are free, family-friendly events throughout the 100 miles of barrier islands, from festivals to fireworks displays. This summer, a trip to the Outer Banks can cost less than you think.
