You won’t find much in the form of shopping malls or designer boutiques in the Outer Banks, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get some shopping done during your time on these barrier islands. Embrace the local culture and make your way to the numerous surf shops scattered along the coast. You’ll find everything from North Carolina-made apparel at OBX Outfitters in Kitty Hawk to surf boards at Outer Banks Surf Shop in Duck. Along with the beach attire, there are plenty of craft shops in the Outer Banks. Whether you’re looking for antiques or a painting to remember your trip, you’ll find it at various stores in each of the towns.
