Since I most likely won't have a Wanderlust Wednesday post up for next month, I decided I would take today as a kind of swan song (except not really, because I will be be back at some point!) and share one of my favorite places on earth: The Outer Banks of North Carolina (OBX).
Maybe I'm a bit biased since I've gone there almost every year since I was born, but I truly think it is one of the most magical beaches in the world. If you're looking for a vacation that will surround you with people and activities, this is not it. If you want to lounge by the pool or beach and have fruity drinks delivered to you, this is not it. But if you're looking to get away from it all and enjoy some gorgeous beaches, then you need to visit the OBX.
Although it has become a little more developed over the past few decades, it still remains a calm, peaceful setting--and that doesn't mean there aren't things to do! You can go kayaking around Pea Island; charter a boat at Oregon Inlet and set out to catch some fishies; you can seek out the wild horses in Corolla; you can visit some historic lighthouses; and finally, my personal favorite, you can just hang out at the beach all the livelong day.
