The Outer Banks is a 320-kilometer strip of narrow barrier islands located off the coast of North Carolina and Virginia. The strip of islands is fondly called the OBX and is definitely a top tourist destination in the U.S.A. The temperate climate in OBX is ideal that the area has its share of thriving communities and towns up and down the coastline. I have always taken an interest in the Outer Banks as it was here that the Wright bothers first flight took off. Yup! - the town of Kitty Hawk. It is also the home of the legendary (almost) banker ponies. Are there homes for sale in Outer Banks NC? Of course! I wonder how much they cost.
