Outdoor activities on the OBX aren’t limited to water sports you know. There is so much more to do. Did you know the Outer Banks has some of the best skateboard parks in the country and they are free? But that’s a different article altogether… From miniature golf to an aerial park, and so much more, you’ll find fun everywhere!

No longer simply windmills and dog-legs, a mini-golf family adventure might include a whole host of hazards and fun like pirate ships, rivers and lakes, life-size dinosaurs, mining towns, a train ride, and waterfalls.  Carpet or grass greens, outdoor or indoor in 3D, or even courses with amazing waterfront views, your whole family will enjoy some friendly competition and great entertainment.

Courses range up to 36 holes and give you the opportunity to putt to your heart’s content. Maybe even try a chip and putt course. Most miniature golf courses offer a choice of snacks so, don’t forget to grab an ice cream or other treat as you play. Plus, mini-golf really is not just a daytime sport any more. Enjoy a round or two in the cooler breezes of the evening! Most courses on the Outer Banks offer incentives like afternoon family rates, secret holes that win free games, multiple rounds for a package price, or discount coupons on their websites.

Add to the fun by enjoying something a little different… bumper cars or a bungee trampoline. Not the old-time ‘bash ’em up’ bumper cars of days gone by but state-of-the-art amusement lets you bump to your heart’s delight. Don’t forget to try the bungee trampoline too. Make it a competition to see who can jump the highest. Kids of all ages simply will not want to stop bouncing and bumping.

OR… Try something really Out of the Ordinary… The Outer Banks only aerial adventure park! This is truly the ultimate rope climbing experience. A little something for

everyone and every skill level too. From zip lining to mid-air kayaking you simply cannot beat this amazing adventure. Situated in Nags Head you’ll have the greatest views of both the ocean and the sound as you hang high above the ground.

From Corolla to Nags Head, no matter if you are putting, climbing, bumping, or bouncing, the outdoor fun just doesn’t stop.
