The Outer Banks has always been a vacation destination, but what about living here year-round?
If you had the freedom live anywhere, would you choose a place that is not only an incredibly beautiful place to live, but also has a strong community? The Outer Banks is fortunate to draw year-round residents from all over the country, where the heart and soul is neighbor helping neighbor, which is vastly unheard of elsewhere.

In the recent article titled Hatteras Real Estate: The changing landscape of real estate from the Island Free Press, the author Tom Hranicka wrote:
“… the prevalence of working at home and learning in online classrooms, the dream of buying an island home has become a feasible reality facilitated by very low interest rates. The result has been the surge in buyer demand that we have seen over the past four months.”
And The Outer Banks Voice article titled ‘It’s been absolutely nuts’ OBX homes sales boom in midst of pandemic talks about the huge home sales boom on the Outer Banks.
Another recent win for our community is featured in the news article titled KDH okays plan to transform Meekins Field by Michelle Wagner in the Outer Banks Voice, she states that:
“The Kill Devil Hills Board of Commissioners on Sept. 14 gave the green light to move forward with an $888,000 project to turn Meekins Field park into a new and improved recreational facility that, along with already existing tennis courts, will include a soccer/multi-use field and smaller practice field.
The park, when completed, will also feature a large playground area, picnic shelters, an art wall and even a splash pad — an area for water play that will be the first of its kind in Dare County.”

The Kill Devil Hills Board of Commissioners authorized town staff to apply for an Outer Banks Visitors Bureau Tourism Impact Grant to help fund the project. We were thrilled with the installment of Dowdy Park in Nags Head, now we’re super excited to have another park being transformed in the heart of Kill Devil Hills.
