Hello there!! Recently made our first trip to OBX. Had a great time in Avon and will hopefully be back soon. On our way there, I was pulled over and cited for excessive speed, asked to appear in court in Dare County (officer reported me as going 75 in a 55). It was a straight 2 mile stretch of highway, no other traffic on the road, or buildings in the area. Curious if you all have exper... [Read Full Post]

STUPID QUESTION? - Posted By: notinobx on 12/3/2016
This will probably bring smiles to serious shell collectors but since I lack Shell hunter's artistic talent, I usually pay very little attention to oyster shells, mostly picking up other types that are more eye catching. Anyhow, I did notice this one with what I suppose is a fossil imprint and thought it was pretty interesting. Is this something found fairly commonly? It might be fun to see if I c...

Was down in Rodanthe last week and see that KITTY HAWK KITES ADVENTURE TOWER has opened in Waves/Rodanthe. Then next to Sting Wrays Restaurant, a new big steel building going up and heard it might be a new lazer tag business but not sure.

NINO'S PIZZA - You must eat here
Our annual OBX vacation always includes on the first night. Their pizzas and calzones are outstanding. We've never had a bad meal here.

THE PAPER CANOE - Disappointed
We have been going to The Paper Canoe since it opened some years ago. We always sit a the bar for dinner....a great room with stunning views. Love the décor and the cozy feel of the room. Nice wait staff and barkeep. I had the sausage pizza which was not up to par. My wife had the special, yellowtail snapper.....boring and tasteless. Couple this with run of the mill chardonnay at $11.00/glass and ... [Read Full Review]

CAFE FRANCO'S - Excellent
Our family of 9 visited Café Franco's on 9/9/16 and everyone loved their meals. We had a lot of leftovers and had them for dinner a few nights later. The seafood pasta dishes were delicious as well as the alfredo sauce. This will be a place we will return every year.

THE PAPER CANOE - Excellent Dinner For A Price
We ate at the Paper Canoe in August with a party of four. Our waiter was excellent and we all had a very good time. Everyone had a drink or two and each of us enjoyed our dinner. As stated by others, it is expensive, but I feel it was worth it. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere is comfortable. Definitely not cheap eats, but everyone deserves a treat now and then.

AQUA - Amazing Fresh Seafood
We ate here on the first week of our trip and left the kids at the vacation house with pizza. They had an amazing special with a fresh-caught local Cubera snapper. It was delicious as was everything else we tried that night. This was our first time at Aqua and definitely won't be out last. It is a tad expensive, but it is worth it.
