Residents of North Carolina as well as visitors from around the world have discovered the many pleasures of North Carolina's Outer Banks. Home to the legendary Andy Griffith and featured in novels by Nicholas Sparks, the OBX (as the natives call it) is famous for many things including beautiful beaches, plentiful fishing, sun-dappled ocean waves, windsurfing and much, much more.
