A trip to Outer Banks takes visitors to a string of barrier islands just off the North Carolina coast. A holiday in Outer Banks is a chance to explore 320 km (200 mi) of state parks, open sea beaches, and wreck diving sites. It's also the perfect chance to visit Roanoke Island, England's original settlement in the New World. For those looking to add a bit of adrenaline to their experience, a vacation in Outer Banks delivers many different fishing options and methods, some of which hark back to the first European settlers in this part of the world.
