DUCK HISTORY

Named after the waterfowl that migrate though the area, Duck is a Northern Outer Banks paradise. With its four vibrant vegetative communities, Duck Town Park contains a maritime deciduous and evergreen forest, the willow swamp, and marshland. Complete with public sound access, the Town Park has a soundside boardwalk, trails of crushed bluestone, a playground, gazebo, and picnic area.  They even thought of the family pet with a water fountain that has a dog friendly unit.  There are summer events for everyone and an annual Jazz Festival in October.  Town Park is a vacation within itself. Visit the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility for a fascinating tour.  Research conducted at this facility has helped gain knowledge about nor’easters and hurricanes.

There is a path through the town for biking, walking, or inline skating.  The quaint shops, art galleries, day spas, and fine sea side dining are some of the unique features of Duck.  As a consistent contender on the Travel Channel’s America’s Best Beaches, Duck is ideal for a family beach getaway.
