The Waterfront Shops in Duck is a unique waterfront shopping village with over eighteen boutiques, restaurants, eateries and more ....... Our waterfront boardwalk meanders along the shores of The Currituck Sound and connects to the new Town Boardwalk that has become the focal point and showplace of our Town. At the centerpiece of our Boardwalk is  the new expansive Town pier that can accommodate many boats which makes water travel to our complex possible.

We wanted to create an environmentaly friendly project that is in harmony with nature. You can stroll along our pond and enjoy a relaxing morning at Duck's Cottage , which features your favorite coffee, tea and pastries not to mention every newspaper in the world. Duck's Cottage is the former "Powder Ridge Gun Club" a waterfowl hunting club that dates to the early 1920's. It was restored in 2001 to reflect our commitment to protect Duck's  early waterfowl heritage . The whole family can enjoy walking around our pond feeding the wildlife . We have egrets, ospreys, herons not to mention waterfowl , martins, turtles and fish that make this area their home. This is truly a tranquil setting an a busy world. If you desire a little more action take a leisurely stroll on the Boardwalk and enjoy viewing the parasailing and all the watersports activities.

The Bluepoint Restaurant, a Southern Living regular, has some of the finest food in the South or anywhere else for that matter.  They have an expansive restaurant as well as a nice side yard to enjoy some incredible sunsets.  If you are looking for the perfect gift for that special someone then you came to the right place with an eclectic mix of retail stores, from hand crafted art and specialty women's stores to upscale mensware and surfware. The Kids Store and Sunset Ice cream are a childrens paradise while the Coastal Cantina, a mexican eatery, offers the family a more laid back dining experience outside.

Spring and Summer at the Waterfront Shops affords your family  the opportunity to spend a day of fun filled activities and create memories of a lifetime. If you are little more adventurous discover our "Secret Season's ", Fall and Winter, and watch the  Fall migration of Waterfowl including the Tundra Swan that spend their Winter in front of our Boardwalk.Please stop by and find out why everyone is flocking to The Waterfront Shops.  We would look forward to seeing you and your family at The Waterfront Shops real soon.

Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education

Corolla, North Carolina is a must see nautical village scented with the spray of the salty sea. It's located on NC Highway 12 along a thin strip of land bordered on the east by the tempestuous Atlantic Ocean, and on the west by the inland waterway of Currituck Sound. Corolla is home to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, whose beacon first beckoned to sailors at sea in 1875, and to art noveau Whalehead Club, a turn of the century hunt club for sportsmen. The quaint village is also home to one of North Carolina's natural history gems called the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education. The center, which opened in 2006, is an impressive and marvelous 22,000 square foot interpretive center for young and old alike to explore the history and vast diversity of North Carolina's wildlife.
