SHERTZ TRIP REPORT 7/24-8/7 - Posted By: shertz on 7/31/2021
Finally able to do a 2-week in-a-row vacation in OBX. Headed down on Friday 7/23 for an overnight stay in Pocomoke City. Nice easy ride and had dinner at Don’s Seafood (not bad, by why so dark inside?). Left Sat morning at 8am and hit the usual beach traffic. Smooth sailing and hit the bridge around noon to the usual backup. Stopped at Longboards for lunch but they were closed. So went to ... [Read Full Post]

ICE CREAM - Posted By: Anniemimi on 7/31/2021
Best ice cream on OBX? I don't know. I tried Holy Cow, a new place I think, tonight. Price for 1 scoop in a dish was $7. Mine in a waffle cone was more. I was surprised by the price. Place was clean, organized, service very good and friendly, ice cream was good. At home in PA we have homemade ice cream that is sooo GREEEEAAAAT at Half Pint Creamy in New Oxford. Holy Cow wasn't near as good... [Read Full Post]

OBX OR WHAT???? - Posted By: Bentmtn on 7/31/2021
Son in law sent this pic today of their family hitting the shores of Lake Michigan in Winnetka....north shore of Chicago. His rhetorical question was...Obx or what!!?? So looked like Avon beach and surprisingly it was Lake Michigan today. Beach hazard there as well today. Wow!! Could have fooled me! Granddaughter having a ball playing on the beach!!

FRESH SEAFOOD IN TRI-VILLAGES - Posted By: jrbeck17 on 7/31/2021
We are coming down from Western NY in about 3 weeks, staying oceanfront in Waves for the second year in a row. This year we want to do a seafood boil. I know there are a couple of fresh seafood markets in that area, but which one is the best? I think we want to assemble our own pot to boil, so is there one that is better from an assortment perspective - scallops, shrimp, crab, etc.? Als... [Read Full Post]

SAFETY RECOMMENDATION - Posted By: rlaxn on 7/31/2021
If you use a fire extinguisher from your rental, please notify the property management company/ owner or be sure to replace it yourself. We had a situation where we were home in PA and our alarm company contacted us to see if we wanted the fire company to respond to a smoke/fire alarm event at our house. Knowing we had renters there, we said “send them”! We also contacted our PM and they wer... [Read Full Post]

BLUE MOON BEACH GRILL - Back to the Blue Moon
My Better Half and I stopped for lunch on a windy, overcast day. The remodeling they've done since we were last there (created a "waiting bar", added a game room, and outdoor dining) were welcome I recall the large crowds inside and outside while waiting for a table before). Even though it was at lunch, there was a small wait... we saw that as a good thing. Sat at the bar in the main area and had... [Read Full Review]

MAKO MIKES, INC. - Mediocre At Best
We recently ate here for the first time and we won't be back. The service was excellent, so I kinda feel sorry for the servers. We both got shrimp that was utterly tasteless and kind of mushy. Frozen shrimp can be done better. Fries were OK, iced tea was godawful.

DAJIO - Very nice restaurant
I had a fish sandwich and my wife had Pesto Pasta, couldn't have been better. The staff was great also. We'll be back for sure

I had the Mahi Tacos and they were great. Sort of like a small grilled filet in each one. Spicey mayo like sauce was killer. Outside dinning is a plus

MULLIGANS INC. - Sit up in the Tiki Bar
Sat up on the roof Tiki bar and had burgers. They were great and so was the service even though they were pretty busy.

Th Wright Memorial Bridge webcam on 158 in Kitty Hawk. Facing West, you can see the traffic entering the Outer Banks on this NCDOT webcam. The image is updated every minute.

A great streaming webcam from Corolla Light in the northern part of the Outer Banks. This is a full motion video feed with a very clear picture of the beach and the surf.

Nice webcam view of the beach and pool deck from the Hilton Head Beach & Tennis Resort on the north end of HHI. It may take a few seconds to load, but it is worth the wait for the clear view of the beach and ocean. This webcam is a great way to see the beach on Hilton Head Island when you can't be there in person.
