Shop ’til you drop
The best rainy day blues cure is a shopping trip! Whether you’re looking for small, local boutiques or outlets for well-known brands, the OBX has it.
Timbuck II in Corolla has many local shops and restaurants to offer, as well as some entertainment options. Grab a unique souvenir from The Mystic Jewel, or head to The Cotton Gin for all things Southern. Be sure to grab a sweet treat at Big Buck’s Homemade Ice Cream.
Duck has so many amazing shops that you could spend your entire vacation exploring them all! One of our favorites is Scarborough Faire Shopping Village. Start your day at Treehouse Coffee Company with a latte and Nashville Hot Chicken Biscuit. Grab a super adorable root duck from The Island Attic or grab an Outer Banks sweatshirt at Gray’s. Treat yourself to something sweet from OBX Frozen Yogurt – we have a hard time deciding between froyo and Dippin’ Dots!
If you’re looking for more well-known brands, head to Outlets Nags Head. Located at milepost 16, shop stores from Salt Coast Outfitters to Sunglass Hut to Vera Bradley Factory Outlet. Find deals at a variety of stores and pick up a new outfit for your next beach day or family dinner!
