Duck, North Carolina is the northernmost town in the Dare County Outer Banks. The area remained mostly undeveloped until the late 1980's when NC 12 was extended north to Corolla. The residents have done a great job maintaining the character of this small seaside village. Miles of multi-use paths make it easy to walk and bike around the village to enjoy a wide variety of shopping and dining options. Duck has been listed on the Travel Channel's "Best Beach Directory."
