Military Travel Loan to the Outer Banks, North Carolina – Part 1 – North to South


OBX – Introduction
A quick overview…

The Outer Banks is a 200 mile long string of peninsulas and barrier islands separating the Atlantic Ocean from mainland North Carolina.   Also known as the Grave Yard of the Atlantic, more than 1000 ships have sunk off our coast since 1526 due to the ever shifting sandbars and unpredictable currents.  And all pirate lovers welcome as the famous Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard, used the Outer Banks as one of his anchorages.  Along with the rich history you can keep yourself entertained on the many bodies of water that make up the Outer Banks by surfing, paddle boarding, wind surfing, fishing, kayaking, boating, etc.  And if water is not your thing you can explore the many lighthouses,  sand dunes, bask in the sun, shop the many custom boutiques, sample local wine, take family portraits,  go to outdoor plays,  and dine at some of the best restaurants on the East Coast.
