Think beyond the beach umbrella.  


Not sure about the shoulder season at the beach? Some weeks are beach-ready sunny, while other days invite you to head out and explore the area. Here are a few ideas...


Get up close with sea life at the Roanoke Aquarium. The more adventurous can explore shipwrecks littering the coastline, giving the area the name the Graveyard of the Atlantic. 


History buffs--and their not-so-buff companions--may both be drawn into the history at sites such as the Currituck Club, multiple lighthouses, the Wright Brothers Memorial, World War II U-boat attacks, the Lost Colony, and the Elizabethian Gardens.


State and national seashores such as Jockey's Ridge, along with kayaking, nature centers, and Banker Pony excursions make for a great unplugged holiday. 


Follow pirate lore south on the ferry to Ocracoke Island, or drive north to Corolla and Carova where you may spot banker ponies on 4-wheel drive beaches.


Shop 'til you drop at the boutiques and galleries of Duck, or explore an eclectic selection of locally owned businesses, a treasure-trove of second-hand shops, and Tanger Outlets. 


Want more? The Outer Banks has fun for kids of all ages: laser tag, movie theater, bowling, putt-putt, ropes course, go-karting


After a day of exploring, come home to the Dolphin Inn, set with all the conveniences of home and more! You won't forget the starry night sky, especially from the Dolphin Inn's private hot tub.  



The Dolphin Inn is located in Southern Shores,

the heart of the Outer Banks. 

Conveniently located just two miles north of the causeway/Wright Memorial Bridge and two miles south of Duck, NC.
