Area Attractions
The area offers a wide selection of restaurants, shopping, golfing and activities for the whole family to enjoy.  In addition to the picturesque shopping in the village of Duck, there are numerous other shopping areas and point of interest along Route 12.  Don’t miss the Wright Brothers First Flight Museum, Wild Horse Preserve, and the highest sand dunes on the east coast (great for hang gliding).
