There is this skinny strip of land that stretches for 130 miles off the coast of North Carolina that they call the Outer Banks. It is rife with American history. For instance, the Wright Brothers used this area to practice their flights. Today, hundreds of people go to the Outer Banks for kite surfing. Vacationers can also participate in paragliding and hang gliding. There is a Wright Brothers National Monument in Kitty Hawk, North Caroline. In 2011, 447,000 people went to see it.
Also, the first baby to be born in the New World was from England. She was born at Fort Raleigh on Roanoke Island in 1587. They named her Virginia Dare. Congress gave its approval for building the now famous Cape Hatteras Lighthouse back in 1794. They approved it because so many ships were having problems along the coastline there.
Today the Outer Banks is a popular vacation destination. The Hatteras Island rentals are particularly nice to stay in when vacationing here. Hatteras Island rentals are just some of the OBX vacation rentals available today. Besides the Hatteras Island rentals, vacationers can stay in a Kitty Hawk rental, Nags head vacation rentals, Corolla rentals or the Duck NC vacation rentals, all situated along the Outer Banks area of North Carolina.
