The barrier islands off of North Carolina, known as the Outer Banks, are a beautiful place to spend an afternoon exploring. The islands are infamous for their open-sea beaches, state parks, and shipwreck diving sights! But unless you plan to walk the stretch of one of these islands, you’ll want some mode of transportation so that you can maximize your afternoon. Some of the best things to do in the Outer Banks involve transportation around the islands itself!
