Nags Head, NC Real Estate

Nags Head NC Real Estate Overview

The first resort area on the Outer Banks beaches, Nags Head, NC, is still drawing vacationers more than 150 years later. The first visitors to the Outer Banks placed their attention on the sound side of the town, but it wasn’t long before the cool breezes of the ocean drew them eastward to build summer homes. These original oceanfront cottages, the Unpainted Aristocracy, are still standing watch over endless summers to this day. Today, Nags Head, NC, is one of the largest towns along these shores and it’s filled with everything anyone needs to enjoy a great Outer Banks vacation by the sea. Nags Head offers a blend of the old with the new. Visitors still can revel in timeworn traditions while enjoying a host of modern-day comforts.

Nags Head, NC, is mostly revered for the great outdoors. The town is home to the northern Outer Banks’ largest concentration of watersports outfitters, miniature golf courses and go-cart tracks. It also has the greatest number of public beach accesses. The ecologically diverse Nags Head Woods welcomes visitors into a world of high ridges, fresh water, forests, critters, flora, cemeteries with some of the oldest Nags Head names in them, the remains of old houses and trail after trail that traverses this wonderland. Perhaps the main — or at least most obvious — feature of Nags Head attractions and other things to do, besides the Atlantic Ocean, is Jockey’s Ridge State Park, the largest sand dune on the East Coast. If you don’t watch the sunset from atop this sand mountain, you’ve missed a vital and cherished Nags Head, NC, tradition. The panoramic view of sound, ocean, and surrounding towns is honestly breathtaking. The town is home to three traditional Outer Banks fishing piers — Nags Head Pier and Outer Banks Pier. A third, the North Carolina Aquariums’ impressive Jennette’s Pier, opened in May 2011 and has become a popular place for Nags Head weddings, meetings and events. Nags Head's beaches continue to lure visitors more than 150 years after the first vacationer set foot on these shores. Vacationers take full advantage of the ocean by swimming, surfing, sunning and beachcombing. You can also witness wildlife through dolphin watches or become a card-carrying member of the Nags Head fishing tradition. Or if you enjoy more low key activities you can bike or walk the town bike path.
