Duck - Boardwalk Area and Donuts

Duck is located about 8 miles north of the Wright Brothers Bridge.  If you survive the traffic in the height of the season to get there you may not need your car anymore..... Lots available that you can walk to..... Car still needed for serious grocery runs, but other than that, your needs can be met within walking distance.
The "Town of Duck"  has added a beautiful boardwalk over the Currituck Sound.  It has platforms for fishing or crabbing and is lit during the evening by solar power.  During the summer there are concerts, children's shows, and exercise classes at the Pavillion in the heart of Duck.    A variety of sizes of homes are available for rent.  The websites have become MORE informative over the years with virtual tours and great maps.... making it easy to pick out a great vacation home for your travels. There is also a small playground near the boardwalk. (Public Restrooms too!)

The Boardwalk Has Grown to Include a Picture Perfect Chair!

A regular stop for our family is Duck Donuts.   We make at least one visit each time we are at the beach.  The store has expanded so you place your orders on one side of the soundside pier and then pick them up on the other side.  The store has built small platforms so the kids can watch the process of making the delicacies.   They are warm and yummy.  The variety comes from the frosting and toppings and most folks LOVE them!

Watching the Process

The donuts are popular so be prepared to wait in a line.... it moves along, and the scenery can't be beat... At least at the original location..... They've expanded to Southern Shores, Corolla and other parts of Virginia as well.....
