Is the Outer Banks Open to visitors due to Covid-19?

We still wake up most mornings and it feels surreal that just a month ago the anticipation of the Outer Banks vacation rental season was beginning to buzz in the air, the weather was beginning to warm up, it looked like John's Drive In was about to open and this past weekend would have marked the opening of most of the piers. Nothing beats a fresh fish sandwich and a cold beer while watching the waves roll in from the Nags Head Pier. It felt like in March, almost over night, the world changed. Social interactions have changed, businesses are struggling, and sadly its hurting many families and folks across the world. It's hard to always know, what you can do to help others and its amazing to see what people are doing to help. For now, we are writing this post to help our guests and others stay informed on what is happening in the Outer Banks, but mostly, the Outer Banks misses you! So use this post to stay connected to your beach bungalow, the Outer Banks and your future vacation.
