"Each neighborhood is different as they are mostly small developed housing areas.
Four Seasons on the south end of town is probably the nicest and the newest development. They have tennis courts and an indoor pool.
Sanderling has a nature trail and pond but the houses are mostly smaller and it looks like the HOA requires owners to paint their house gray or a neutral earth tone, very dull."
"I doubt that Duck has any nightlife outside of performers at a few restaurants. Possibly the Tiki Bar at Blue Point or the Sunset Grille might be a choice. There is live music on the boardwalk near Coastal Cantina every summer night until sunset but you're pretty much on your own after dark. Heading south to Kitty Hawk, KDH, or Nags Head would be your best bet."
"Duck has a concert schedule on the lawn at the town center which is very nice. Duck also hosts a jazz festival in early October. There are several art galleries in the area."
"The whole town is peppered with shopping areas. Scarborough Faire is the largest and nicest and rambles throughout a wooded area with the 30 plus shops connected by boardwalks. The Waterfront Shops on the Currituck Sound are also popular with around half as many stores."
Known for its relative solitude, beautiful architecture, and clean, natural beaches, Duck is consistently ranked as one of the United States' most welcoming vacation spots for families with young children. Located in the Outer Banks area of North Carolina, the laid back, quiet, historic village of Duck lies on a strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Currituck Sound. Some of the most popular local attractions here are notably family friendly, like the North Carolina Aquarium and the Adventure Museum at Festival Park. But there's plenty for adults as well, especially history enthusiasts, lovers of nature, and those who enjoy a busy, beachy nightlife - not to mention world-class seafood restaurants.
