50. Explore the Town of Duck

By: dcJohn

Vacationing, visiting, or living in Duck provides ways for the whole family to enjoy a wide range of activities.  Warm sandy beaches on both the ocean and the sound provide a perfect playground for adults and children alike to swim in the warm water, collect shells, and build castles in the sand.

Rent a boat, kayak, or wave runner and access the natural beauty which surrounds Duck. Consider taking sailing or windsurfing lessons from a certified local trainer. The consistent winds and calm waters of the sound make this a perfect place to learn and to develop the confidence to challenge yourself in a new adventure.

Beautifully shaded by the overhanging branches, the bicycle path that runs parallel to Route 12 gives visitors the chance to rent a bike and explore the ambience of Duck.  Or, enjoy strolling along the boardwalk. You may be enticed to visit the art galleries and shops along your way.

Most days in the summer the Town of Duck sponsors children’s events and activities like puppet shows, magic shows, and story-telling events.

Duck’s many restaurants serve everything from fast food to the finest cuisine including freshly caught local seafood. Whether you choose to throw on some clothes and flip flops and sit outside or get dressed up and enjoy fine wine and white tablecloths, there is the perfect meal awaiting you in Duck.

Night life in Duck varies from restaurants and bars with live entertainment to one of the many town-sponsored events. “Duck Unplugged” and “The Summer Music Series” are free, outdoor, family-friendly concerts with a variety of music from blues, jazz, folk and bluegrass to dance, funk, pop, and classic rock.

Whether you are simply visiting for the day or spending a lifetime living in Duck, this little gem of a town is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy “Paradise Found”.
