North Carolina's Outer Banks

Several years ago, my wife was reading an article about America's top beaches and learned that the beach on Ocracoke Island, in North Carolina's Outer Banks, was on that list of top spots.  So, we decided to make it our family vacation that year to check it out.  That was 2007, and since then we have made four trips to the Outer Banks, each time appreciating even more the island's beauty.  We love the simplicity of the Outer Banks, the laid-back, relaxing, and non-commercial nature of what we have come to know as "paradise."
