Outer Banks Highway, North Carolina

A drive on Outer Banks National Scenic Byway is the perfect way to see the natural beauty of North Carolina’s coastline. Water is everywhere, with the Atlantic on one side and the Intracoastal Waterway on the other. You’ll feel the invigorating ocean breeze as you take in the beautiful dunes, beaches, lighthouses and wildlife, making this the perfect spring or summer drive.
