Labor Day Weekend 2009
Come to the Outer Banks for your big summer weekend!
(Outer Banks, NC) September 1, 2009 - Take advantage of cool summer deals this weekend at one of the hottest East Coast beach destinations. The Outer Banks of North Carolina is a wildly popular place to get away from it all, and what a way to officially celebrate the summer of 2009 than a trip to the barrier island coast. Finding a place to stay is as simple as browsing our Great Summer Offers at outerbanks.org. You'll find something affordable no matter what your budget. From living simple to lavish, Dare County has a wide selection of hotel and motels, rental cottages and inns, campgrounds, condos and cottage courts to suit your taste and pocketbook. For dining, you'll find brand new restaurants mixed among your tried and true Outer Banks favorites from Duck to Hatteras, and for those who prefer to do their own cooking, you can pick up fresh NC seafood harvested from local waters at one of several real fish markets and fresh produce stands.
With 130 miles of free access beaches and free parking for everyone, not to mention the unbridled nature and wildlife of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore as your setting for fun in the sun, you and yours can have a blast doing things found nowhere else! Go hang gliding off 85 ft. sand dunes, or play a round of golf at a waterside Scottish style links. Climb the tallest lighthouse in North America or walk where the Wright Brothers flew the world's first powered airplane. Learn about the first English colony in what would become America at Roanoke Island Festival Park. Charter a trip offshore to catch billfish, tuna or mahi mahi or just cast out from the shore to reel in dinner! Treasure hunt among the great retail sales going on for just the right gift of clothing, souvenirs or beach home decor.

This beach scene near Avon, NC is typical of what you'll find along the villages of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, particularly among the villages of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. But like all beaches in Dare County, parking and public access are free, and there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy. Aaron Tuell photo courtesy Outer Banks Visitors Bureau.
