The Outer Banks is known for its pristine beaches and casual atmosphere. . Known for its fishing, sand dunes and lighthouses, you’ll also find the Outer Banks offer a wide variety of activities for the whole family
I want to highlight a couple of major events taking place in September:

There were over 850 cyclists registered for the 2011 Cycle North Carolina “Mountains to Coast” October 1 to October 8; and they arrived in Manteo yesterday afternoon. It was a beautiful, sunny day for their ride from Plymouth, 80 miles inland.

Working with Cycle NC event organizers, the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, College of the Albemarle, Town of Manteo, and the Marshes Light community, we gave them a warm and exciting welcome. Shuttle service provided transportation to area hotels and restaurants. A good number of cyclists camped on COA property and walked over to Manteo on the sound-side boardwalk, a short walk to First Friday with live music, food, wine, and other festivities.
They leave Manteo on Saturday and ride to Corolla, 61 miles, along the Beach Road for the last leg of the trip.
