Outer Banks, North Carolina
Like Cape Cod, the Outer Banks draws people to the Atlantic Ocean
and all of its shoreline splendor. Its barrier islands separate the ocean
and the mainland. It is where the first English settlers landed and also
where the Wright Brothers tested their first heavier-than-air flying
There are so many options for meeting planners to consider that they
are urged to connect with the Official Outer Banks Group Planner to
look over choices for meeting venues and accommodations and stuff to
do. The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau arranges site inspections of meet-
ing facilities, all the promotional materials a person could want and
information about attractions and special discounts.
Conferences, board retreats, business strategy sessions, training,
reunions and incentive trips are regularly held in the Outer Banks, and
when the work of the day ends, the abundant menu of outdoor activi-
ties will give attendees some great coastal experiences to enjoy.
Visitors will enjoy three National Park Service sites, including the
Wright Brothers National Memorial, America's first National Seashore
and the nation's tallest brick lighthouse at Cape Hatteras. There are five
lighthouses to view and three of them can be climbed at certain times
of the year. Shipwrecks have produced a treasure trove of artifacts and
remarkable stories of tragedy and survival.
Visitors can explore the area's waters using a standup paddleboard or
kayak, or by taking a coastal tour by boat. Fishing in all its forms is
popular. Some have visited Jockey's Ridge State Park and scampered or
tumbled down the largest natural living sand dune on the East Coast.
Others have been on horseback and meandered along the coastline.
