Make it an endless summer on the beaches of the Outer Banks!

Day 1: Beach Bound (D)
Sit back and relax as we hit the road, heading south for the beach! Smell the salt air as you arrive at your ocean front hotel, The Ramada Plaza in Nags Head, NC, just steps from the beach! You’ll love your Oceanview room! Celebrate your arrival in style with a welcome dinner at Miller’s Seafood Restaurant.
Day 2: Flight of Fancy (B, D)
Take a Flight of Fancy on a guided tour of the Wright Brothers National Museum, where Wilbur and Orville Wright changed the world forever with the first powered airplane. After an historic morning, the rest of the day is yours… relax on the beach, swim in the Atlantic, explore this wonderful town – it’s your vacation! Tonight, eat like an “Outerbanker” at Pamlico Jack’s Restaurant, a favorite of tourists and locals alike.
Day 3: A Wild Ride… #1 Tour in the Outer Banks! (B)
