Sometimes, you are looking for something specific and sometimes you just want to go shopping and explore all the shops that aren’t like the ones you find at home. This Directory of Outer Banks Shopping Centers is perfect to guide you to explore all the nice Outer Banks shops. OBX Advisor groups the retail centers into three areas: Northern Outer Banks, Central Outer Banks, and Roanoke Island. We have cross-referenced each of these store listings with their individual listing so that you can easily view TripAdvisor and Yelp listings for stores you are interested in learning about. For example, the Kitty Hawk Kites in Timbuck II is linked to the individual listing in Corolla. Shopping centers are listed North to South from Corolla to Nags Head, while Roanoke Island is ordered as you drive into it. Each shopping center listing includes a Google map link to assist you in finding the location.
The Northern Outer Banks includes Corolla, Duck and Southern Shores shopping centers. There are twenty shopping centers on the Northern beaches, headlined by Timbuck II and Monteray Plaza in Corolla. The Waterfront Shops and Scarborough Faire in Duck are considered premier locations. Beyond that, the Corolla Village shops are in a picturesque setting. The Shops at Scarbourgh Lane provide covered decks, parking and an extensive grouping of retail choices.
The Central Outer Banks includes Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head shopping centers. There are thirty two shopping centers on the Central Beach, so there are a lot of choices. Tanger Outer Mall and the Outer Banks Mall in Nags Head are the two largest shopping centers. Yet there are a number of shopping centers in Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk that feature an interesting array of retail options.
The Roanoke Island shopping centers are all in Manteo. There are only four, but the Waterfront shops and Magnolia Market are certainly quaint. Actually, the Downtown Waterfront area of Manteo features a number of great retail shops, and there is a totally different vibe there than on the rest of the Outer Banks.
