Enjoy some summer freedom on the Outer Banks Route 12

Share this:

Answer the call of the open road this summer where you get away for the hectic, depleting summer travel woes of air travel. Why not head to North Carolina and travel Route 12 in the Outer Banks. With its 80-mile beach drive full of variety that will eliminate the boredom that comes most road trips. You sense the seascapes and walk in the footsteps of pirates. You’ll travel along meeting places of land and ocean, human activity and wilderness. Get ready for an adventure since you walk where the first white settlers found landfall and Blackbeard the Pirate cast his anchor. You also come close to nature and wildlife with the screech of migrating geese and wild birds zooming overhead.
