When we’re not at the beach we’re dreaming of the beach. Such a simple statement, but with so much truth in it. Sandy toes and salty kisses signs can be found in homes across the United States, with OBX bumper stickers on the back of mini-vans and Jeep Wranglers in their driveways.

All you have to say are these two words “Outer Banks” and the reply is always “OH I LOVE THE OUTER BANKS!” It’s exciting that in this digital age, you can get a daily fix from the OBX wherever you are… from the cold-snapped Minnesota lakes to the wind-blown midwest this winter.

Instagram is a great visual place to feed that Outer Banks beach lifestyle, so, here are a few Instagram fun accounts that inspire us on the Outer Banks:
