Northern Outer Banks

Duck is a great town, with lots of shopping, water sports, restaurants and beach rentals. Duck is located on one of the thinest parts of the Outer Banks of NC on Route 12 heading North toward Corolla. Back in the 1970's Duck was no more than a few homes and has grown quite a bit in the past 10 to 15 years. The towns name came to be, because of the huge number of waterfowl that once magrated here during the season changes.You can still see lots of different types of birds for your viewing and photo pleasure. This is a wonderful area with friendly people and great little shops to "duck" into and take a look around. From Route 12 you can really on see the Currituck Sound side, you have to take a side street to go up and see the ocean, but the sounds side has lots to offer also, like water sports, bird watching and much more. So take a look at this great town for a vacation if you like quiet time with family. Enjoy!

    I didn't believe it when NCZiggy listed a town named "Duck". Thanks for the education!
