OUTER BANKS: JOCKEY’S RIDGE

Every time we head to the Outer Banks, my husband and I always pass Jockey’s Ridge on our way down, so it’s become an annual tradition for us to stop by for a quick visit. We just can’t pass up running up and down the sand dunes and for an added bonus, the views are stunning! If you missed my latest post on our trip to the Outer Banks, you can read more here.

There’s so much sand in one area, it kinda feels like you’re in the dessert. It’s hot, sandy, and when you get to the top your mouth is watering, and you just want a glass of water or a bowl of ice cream if you’re like me. We did end up stopping by our favorite frozen yogurt shop, Surfn’ Spoon, afterwards for a delicious treat.

Once you reach the top of Jokey’s Ridge, you can see both sides of the island—from the ocean to the sound. When we’ve gone in past years, we can usually see several people hang gliding or wind surfing, which is always fun to watch. This year, we only saw a couple people out there but still enjoyed the views.

If you’re heading done to the Outer Banks this summer, be sure to add Jockey’s Ridge to your list of things to do. You won’t regret it!

      You should definitely add it to your list! It’s so pretty, and you feel like you’re in the dessert, which is kinda cool! It’s one of my favorite spots for sure.
