An outer banks original the village (Town) of Duck, NC. Established in 2002 it is the newest incorporated town on the Outer Banks. Locals will likely remember this tiny community and its dirt roads, abundance of waterfowl and if the wind was blowing too hard from the SW the roads would cover with water. Duck has changed dramatically over the past 50 years. Fortunately, it has managed to maintain the quaint and cozy small village feeling, with a waterfront boardwalk on the sound front that connects shops, restaurants and the recently finished town park.
The village lies on the sound side (west) of the banks. Sheltered by the large natural sand dunes and vegetation which has been weather and shaped by the wind and seasonal elements. The hardy and robust natural vegetation include live oaks, bayberry, cedars, willows and pines. The town continues to support a strict vegetation ordinance and building code requirements in an effort to keep this precious balance of nature and development.
Duck has recently added the sound front park with pavilion, playground and walking paths. In the summer you may be able to enjoy morning yoga or evening Jazz in the park. There is always something going on. This pedestrian friendly community is a favorite vacation spot for thousands of visitors every year. A variety of delightful restaurants, specialty shops, spas and the beautiful beaches keep vacationers coming back year after year.
