Plan a Family Vacation to Nag's Head North Carolina

As you plan your upcoming family vacation to the seashore this summer, consider all that Nags Head, North Carolina has to offer.

A Rich History

Nags Head is so much more than just a day at the beach. It is an area of North Carolina that is rich in significance and history. Even the name itself holds some historical intrigue, and there is some debate over its origin. Some people believe the name Nag’s Head comes from a town in England, while others prefer to believe that pirates once roamed the beaches at night and attempted to lure ships to sure by using a lantern tied to the neck of an old nag.

Though no one knows for sure how the name came about, Nags Head was officially established during the 1830s as the first tourist colony, and it wasn’t long before the area became a wildly popular family summer retreat, and over the years, its beauty and charm has kept visitors coming.

Nag’s Head is just a few miles away from several beautiful historic lighthouses, and is in close proximity to other historical sites, such as Kitty Hawk. A quick, 15 minute drive will take you right to the spot where the Wright Brothers flew the very first airplane. And military history buffs in the family will be interested to know that there are several boats from the Civil War and both world wars sunken just a few miles off shore. A trip over to the Outer Banks History Center will give you some time to look through original documents and pictures from the area from over the centuries.

Of course, as times have changed, so has Nag’s Head, but visitors always enjoy a visit to the original homes along the breakers known as Cottage Village, which have kept their original structures – and charm – for over 75 years.

Experience Shore Dinging at its Best

After a day enjoying sand, surf and history, you and your family will want to sit down and enjoy some of the best food in North Carolina.

In Nags Head dining is in no short supply, and some restaurants even allow you to sit right within the pages of history. An area restaurant restored from an old building can provide the ultimate historic dining experience, as you enjoy food and drinks from an award-winning menu, surrounded by nautical artifacts and memorabilia.

So as you plan your trip, look for Nag's Head condos that allow you to experience all that the area has to offer.
