Many would argue the multitude of unique waterfront shops is what attracts so many visitors here each year, but we know it’s so much more. Friendly to bikers and pedestrians alike, with paved paths through the town Duck has become a destination in its own right.

Pet Friendly Outer Banks Vacations
Duck is pet friendly too! Finding pet friendly accommodations in Duck is never a problem, and pets are welcome on all of Duck’s beaches. You’ll find plenty of other spots throughout the area where they are welcome as well but there are leash laws so watch for posted regulations. Most areas in the town require your dog to be on a leash however Duck is one of the few places that allows dogs to be unleashed on the beach so long as they are under control.
Dining by the sound at sunset is a truly breath-taking experience! Whether you are vacationing in Duck or just passing through, be sure to treat yourself to a night of magic as you watch the sun set over the sound while dining in one of Duck’s soundfront restaurants. Save some time to stroll through the town afterward though. You’ll find tons of unique shops with gifts for everyone on your list, including your furry friend.
Family fun is free in Duck! Located in the heart of Duck on 11 soundfront acres you will find Duck Town Park. Boasting gorgeous sunsets from 1823 feet of boardwalk, a floating dock for crabbing and kayak/canoe launching, walking trails and a playground this park could rival that of any major American city. Best of all, its free! The park also offers a variety of summer events such as children’s story time, magic shows, plays, Tai Chi, author discussions and summer jazz concerts.
If you are a little more adventurous, and strolling through a quaint town doesn’t sound like your idea of a good time, don’t worry. Duck won’t let you down! The town offers many activities for the outdoor enthusiast including surf fishing, kayaking, jet skiing, parasailing, surfing, sailing, and the ever popular SUP. (That’s stand up paddle boarding for those of you new to the sport.)
