Friendly People and Beautiful Solitude of the Outer Banks
Ideal weather and rugged isolation make the outer banks of North Carolina’s Cape Hatteras islands one of the most popular destination points for Americans looking to escape to the shoreline. Stretching more than two hundred miles along the coastline of the Tar Heel State, visitors are treated to an array of different beach experiences. From the relatively built-up areas around the northern beach towns of Duck, Kitty Hawk, and Nag’s Head to a more bare bones beach experience, the southern portion of the Outer Banks’ Frisco Beach offers amazing 4X4 access to pristine lonely beachfront property on which to spread your beach blanket.
Charming New England and the Beaches of Narragansett
While the New England region is best known for its splendid fall foliage, one of the better kept secrets is the surfing conditions of Narragansett, Rhode Island. This southward-facing, crescent-shaped beach is the place to Hang-10 when tropical depressions begin to move northward during hurricane season far to the south. Shifting sandbars and Mother Nature conspire to produce swells in excess of 10-feet, which is a distinct draw for the aquatically adventurous. Equally serviceable, nearby Second Beach in Middletown is available should the wave action in Narragansett not be happening.
