The Outer Banks isn’t the only vacation spot on the Currituck Sound. The peninsula adjacent to the famous barrier islands has a culture all its own, and a drive across it offers countless opportunities to enjoy the rustic and refined culture of Currituck County. Drop by a brewery or vineyard on your way down, or visit one of the area’s many golf courses. Stop by a plant nursery, or check out scenic points and parks set up across the peninsula, some of which have water access. Speaking of water access, don’t forget the Poplar Branch Public Boating Access for those more nautically inclined. That’s not even to mention the possibilities after crossing over the Wright Memorial Bridge into the OBX islands! Though it’s nice to have the option, still, to leave the Outer Banks after a day of adventure, and return to the quiet and cultured atmosphere of Poplar Branch in Currituck County. Read More.
