Escape to a coastal town, where high rises and big businesses give way to quaint cottages and local flair. Our Frisco vacation rentals in North Carolina’s Outer Banks are the perfect place to reset at the beach.
If you’ve ever seen one of the popular OBX bumper stickers, then you’ve heard of the Outer Banks. This string of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina is a popular tourist destination, and beloved for the slower way of life and peaceful beaches. Our Frisco beach rentals are tucked on Hatteras Island: one of the longest islands in the U.S., measuring at 50 miles long and three-and-a-half miles at its widest.
First and foremost, the reason you’re dreaming of an Outer Banks vacation: the beaches. These islands have been voted time and time again as the home of the best beaches in the U.S. Hatteras Island itself contains the largest portion of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, an undeveloped region of pristine beaches. Guests will find that the southern half of Frisco, in particular, has an abundance of public beach access and boardwalks.
Spend your days splashing in the warm, gentle waves—with a gently sloping ocean floor, you can even walk 50 to 100 feet out from the shoreline and still be touching the bottom. Hunt for shells and sand dollars or watch the sunset over the ocean. Watersports fanatics will love the kiteboarding and windsurfing conditions on Pamlico Sound, while anglers can take advantage of the abundant fishing opportunities, from ocean piers to freshwater to boat charters. Best of all, the Cape Hatteras National Seashore welcomes dogs, so long as they’re leashed—be sure to check out our Frisco pet-friendly rentals to find the perfect spot for you and your pup.
While the beach is certainly the biggest draw, that’s not the only reason guests return to our Frisco vacation rentals year after year. The town is home to fun family activities like mini-golf and go-kart racing where you can enjoy a little friendly competition.
The Frisco Native American Museum is full of artifacts and historical information, plus a birding room and nature trail. They even host an annual powwow, featuring performances and educational events. Or you can visit the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, where you can learn the fascinating history of more than 2,000 shipwrecks that have occurred off the coast of North Carolina.
Browse art galleries featuring work by local artists, and maybe even bring a piece home with you as a souvenir. Enjoy fresh seafood with southern cookin’ flair at a handful of locally-owned eateries. You can even book an aerial tour of the island by private plane, for a truly memorable and unique view of Hatteras Island.
If you’re looking to get back to the basics on your next getaway—without the traffic, noise, and other distractions—then a Frisco beach rental may be just what you need. Spend your days lazing on the beach or exploring this small, friendly town, and discover just why it’s beloved by so many.
