The small seaside town of Duck is a popular beach destination for good reason. The 7 miles of privately accessed beaches are wide and uncrowded, the town offers a variety of upscale accommodations, and the charming self-contained village is full of top-notch restaurants and shops. And, with newly improved biking/walking trails and quiet side streets, Duck is one of those places where you can ditch the car and get around on bike or foot easily.
Duck is a shopping and dining destination even for those who are staying elsewhere on the Outer Banks. You could easily spend a day shopping or playing in Duck, and dine at some of the best restaurants on the Outer Banks. Watersports are popular in Duck, especially on the Currituck Sound. Duck’s main attraction is its Town Park, complete with a playground, kayak launch, soundside boardwalk and amphitheater. Here in the heart of the village, the Town of Duck fills the park with free family-friendly activities throughout the year, including the popular Duck Jazz Festival held annually over Columbus Day weekend in October.
