Nags Head is a resort community on the Outer Banks (OBX) of North Carolina. The population is only about 3,000, although it swells to 10s of thousands in summer. It is just across the bay from Manteo. The ocean beaches are exceptional with beautiful dunes and rolling waves. This is the area where the Wright Brothers were the first to successfully fly in a heavier than air machine. The huge dunes in the area of that park are something to see. The average age is in the mid 40s as many retirees choose this place to retire. The downside here is that there is always a risk from hurricanes, so many retirees only come here for part of the year.
