Waterfront Shops - The Boardwalk

One of the things I loved most about our stay in Duck, North Carolina was the Waterfront Shops.  It was like stepping back in time.  I didn’t count how many shops are involved but there are quite a few.  I’m guessing there were around 20 shops.  A variety of shops offer just about everything including clothing boutiques, beach items, souvenirs, and restaurants.  You’ll need to carry cash.  Some of the shops do not take cards or checks.  We stopped at a little ice cream shop that would only take cash.  I’m glad we had some because my butter pecan ice cream scoop was heavenly.  If we hadn’t been carrying a little cash, I would have missed out on this experience!  :)

The Waterfront shops connect to the town boardwalk.  We walked through the shopping area and on down the boardwalk.  We passed by several docks where the people of Duck access small boats, jet skis, and kayaks.  Visitors of the boardwalk can enjoy a long stroll along the sound waters.  We loved it.  The waters were a little bit choppy when we were there, but still peaceful.

The Waterfront Shops and boardwalk provide a great place to relax, shop, and even rent a kayak.  Later in the week, my husband and I drove down the street just past the shops where we accessed the boardwalk and a rental company.  We rented a double kayak and viewed the Waterfront Shops from the waters of the Currituck Sound.  I could have stayed in that area forever.

If you visit North Carolina’s Outer Banks, you have to make time to drive up to Duck and shop the Waterfront Shops.  Even if you don’t buy a single item, it is still a greet place to visit and enjoy a peaceful walk beside the Currituck Sound waters.
