The Waterfront Shops in Duck, NC

Shopping, Restaurants and Things to Do

1240 Duck Road, Duck

The Waterfront Shops in Duck, NC, is a destination. The shopping center sits at the edge of the boardwalk that wraps along the soundside of the village, offering a hub for shops, eateries and activities – there’s an attraction for any age and interest. Stroll the boardwalk and admire views of the sound while venturing into any of the shops and eateries that catch your eye. In the nice weather, many open their doors and even have boardwalk sales to tempt you farther inside. Boutique clothing stores, galleries with the work of local artists and craftsmen, coastal-inspired men’s and women’s clothing stores with products from your favorite brands, a toy store, a pet shop, specialty food stores and much more line the waterfront. Wander in and out of them and find new ways to update your own style and your home’s aesthetic too. Treat your children, your dog and also yourself to the plush toys, homemade dog treats and fine, handcrafted jewelry. Younger shoppers (and those young at heart) are delighted by confectioneries from sweets shops or feeding ducks and geese in the duck pond at The Waterfront Shops.

The Waterfront Shops Beyond Retail Therapy

There’s more to The Waterfront Shops than shopping. The opportunities for Duck, NC, restaurants and things to do create a place where you come and shop then happily stay for hours. Unwind and get centered with a class at a yoga studio. Or re-energize, with an iced latte in hand, on a coffee shop’s picturesque porch. Those feeling up to an adventure can practice kayaking or standup paddleboarding in the sound. All the activity is bound to work up an appetite. Quiet rumbling stomachs or raise a glass to shopping success with a gourmet meal or quick bite. No matter which you choose, expect to pair it with sunset views over the sound.
