  • Avon is still a nice quite vacation spot for out of towners. Its slightly removed from the development of Nags Head but not that much more of a drive.

  • I met the guy who leases the pier from the Park Service and he gave us a tour. It is an amazing place and they have done a ton of work on it this past winter. It is also a great place to fish! Highly recommended.
