4th of July on the Outer Banks
Celebrate Independence Day at the very spot the U.S. began. Did you know that the Outer Banks were the site of the English's first attempt to colonize the New World. About 20 years later, they were successful in setting up the Jamestown colony.
With warm summer temperatures in the mid-80s and 90s, refreshing Atlantic breeze, and playful waves, the Outer Banks is a very popular spot to celebrate the 4th of July, beyond its historic roots. Spend the day soaking it in, cooling off or playing in the surf. If you love activities and exercise, rent a SUP or kayak to truly explore the area or join in on the Freedom 5K run in Kill Devil Kills. The Town of Duck hosts an annual parade not to be missed, followed by a park party featuring music and festivities.
No matter what you do during the day, you're going to want to head to be in a good spot for fireworks when the sun goes down. Here are some of the top local spots.
Best Spots to See the Fireworks in the Outer Banks:
- Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills
- Avon Fishing Pier
- Manteo sound
- Nags Head Fishing Pier
