NEW FLOOD ZONES - Posted By: WallySail on 7/9/2020
Hi Folks, I have a question about the new FEMA Flood zone maps. I am a homeowner soundside in Nags Head. When I bought my home last May I was in an AE flood zone. I am now in an X zone, not a flood zone? I am certain at ~8feet elevation, my home has seen a surge from the sound in the past. While not complaining(I think flood insurance will be cheaper) I'm wondering how large the storm surges have ... [Read Full Post]

HOUSE PARTY = TRASHED HOUSE - Posted By: Tim-OBX on 7/9/2020
I just heard one of the rental homes in the office was trashed. The cleaners called and I have not heard the final outcome. To add to the problem is we have it listed for sale and it is under contract to close soon. :-( It is one of those million dollar oceanfronts too so could be expensive to repair.

FAVORITE DUCK RESTAURANTS? - Posted By: JennaB on 7/9/2020
We've been staying in the Duck area for 16years now, but I confess, we are creatures of habit when we come to the beach and always visit the same restaurants. Since my hubby is immunosuppressed, we won't be dining in anywhere (and I'm not driving to Nags Head or KDH for carryout.) I'm going to miss my annual birthday meal at The Blue Point, so tell me your favorite Duck restaurants for carr... [Read Full Post]

4WD AREA - Posted By: MiMi on 7/9/2020
First time staying in the 4WD Area. All tips appreciated. We are staying about 9 miles north of the end of the paved road. What is the beach like up there? Does it slope into the water or big drop off? Are mosquitoes bad or does the wind keep them away? TIA for all input.

SPANKY'S GRILLE - Good Burgers
This is a great place to eat. It is a no frills establishment with counter service. You order at the counter and your food is delivered to you fresh and hot. The burgers and fries were so good and they had fried okra! I don’t know how they make a profit because the prices are low. This is my new go to place from now on.

SPANKY'S GRILLE - Good Food.
I really like this restaurant. It is a no frills place. You walk up to the counter to order. They bring you your food. The prices are low and they have a variety of choices, including fried okra (my favorite). The hamburgers and fries were very good and everyone was so nice. I plan to go back.

BASNIGHT'S LONE CEDAR CAFE - Great for Weddings!
Basnight's Lone Cedar hosted our Reception Dinner for a group of about 30 people last August (2019). Throughout the entire planning process the staff was always available to answer any questions. Our food was great and the view from our private room was spectacular. I would definitely recommend Basnight's to any other Outer Banks Brides, families, or couples looking for an evening date location. W... [Read Full Review]
