Outer Banks Shopping

We all know the national pastime isn’t really baseball, right? It’s Shopping, with a capital S.

And the sport of Outer Banks Shopping is helping redefine that pastime. It’s the thrill of the hunt. It’s bringing the bounty home. It’s indulgence … and it’s just plain fun. Outer Banks shopping is right up there with the best of areas. In fact, we even laugh that Duck is the Outer Banks’ own local Rodeo Drive (see Duck Shopping). These Outer Banks clothing stores feature bathing suits, casual sportswear, formal dresses and suits, all the current surf shop styles, high style, easy style. If you lose your suitcase, no worries, you’re set. And, while some areas have a reputation as a shopper’s mecca, all the towns here have plenty to please even the most discriminating of shoppers. Corolla Shopping can help you navigate that area’s upscale offerings. Roanoke Island Shopping is characterized by wandering around the waterfront town of Manteo, moseying in and out of shops and galleries – a perfect way to spend the day. The same is true with Ocracoke Shopping. On this island, many of the houses along quiet streets have been repurposed into retail. It’s a charming way to experience Outer Banks shopping!

Variety Characterizes Outer Banks Shops

As with dining options in the Outer Banks, Outer Banks shopping is surprisingly varied. You’ll enjoy high-end art galleries featuring the watercolors, oils and other medias of local and national artists. On the opposite end, if you want the kitschiest of souvenirs, that’s here too. Want to prepare a fresh seafood dinner at home tonight? Choose a locally owned seafood market in Hatteras Shops to purchase fresh Outer Banks seafood and marinades, and then stop at a specialty wine shop for a bottle to make the evening complete. Set your sights on Nags Head Shopping’s selection (including the places in Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk) of antiques, fishing tackle, books, watersports equipment, home décor items, hammocks, handmade jewelry, gifts with an historic theme, nautically inspired selections – whew! You can spend days exploring these shops and always feel like you’re seeing something new.
