Duck Real Estate - Homes For Sale In Duck NC 

About mid-point in the 1960’s, my family started vacationing annually in Duck, usually during the second or third week of August. Back then, there were no paved roads, and few homes for sale in Duck NC. You could walk the beach most of the day and not see a single soul.

Each summer, anticipation ran high for my parents as our week at the beach approached; and every year, I dreaded the idea of being away from my friends, with only my two brothers for company. Looking back, now I understand what my parents treasured. Although Duck has changed dramatically since then, it has retained its charm, and is known as a family oriented vacation spot for thousands of visitors, who just like my parents, anticipate their week at the beach with great relish.
