Nags Head Vacation Rentals, Outer Banks, North Carolina
At a Glance:
According to local legend, the town of Nags Head got its name from days long ago when pirates were a dangerous threat up and down the eastern seashore. Locals would patrol the beaches at night with a lantern hung around an old nag's neck. Thus making ships wreck along the treacherous shoals of the Atlantic. The area off our coast became known as "The Graveyard of the Atlantic" due to the number of ship wrecks.
Today the town of Nags Head is a sportsman's paradise. Hang gliding and dune climbing at Jockey's Ridge, sport fishing, wind surfing, sailing and golfing are all popular activities in addition to the multitude of premier Nags Head beach rentals, situated on miles of pristine beaches. This area is convenient to shopping, restaurants, go-cart tracks and mini-golf.

Old Nags Head Place
Old Nags Head Place is adjacent to Jockey’s Ridge State Park and nested between the highways. It’s a small community started in the early 2000’s, but is rich in Old Nags Head architecture, gorgeous new homes and beautiful landscaping. In the center of the community sits a small park, with a winding sidewalk to the beach with park benches and street lights. Enjoy the landscaping as you walk the path to the Curlew Street Beach Access with dune top deck directly across the street. And just a few yards north is the Nags Head Pier. This is a great location!
