Relaxation is the name of the game in the beautiful, oceanfront community of Southern Shores, North Carolina. Situated on the Outer Banks, north of Kitty Hawk and south of Duck, this residential area provides access to pristine and uncrowded private beaches. Some of the activities visitors can enjoy include swimming, surfing, hiking, biking and tennis. There are also sound-side marinas and the Westside Park, the latter featuring a playground area designed for the whole family.
Be sure to check out these destinations while in Southern Shores:
- Coastal Provisions Market: This local gourmet food shop features seafood, gourmet meats, artisan cheeses, and more.
