From the first settlement of the English on Roanoke Island to the Wright brothers first flight at Kitty Hawk, the Outer Banks holds a wealth of history. While many flock to the 200-mile strip of wind-swept barrier islands to try to solve the mystery of the Lost Colony or to stand on the spot where Wilber Wright first left terra firma, more often than not, visitors today come for relaxing days along the Atlantic, adventures in the back bay, and to witness the wild horses frolic on the beach. No matter what brings you and your furry friend to the Carolina coast, Outer Banks pet-friendly rentals— like the Comfort Inn on the Ocean —put you near all of the action…even if that action is a novel in hand and James Earl Bones napping at your feet.
Depending on your pet’s temperament, you can take Mr. Bones along to see the famous wild horses. The descendants of wild Spanish mustangs are an amazing representation of fortitude in the face of adversity, having withstood centuries of hurricanes and human intrusion. You can rent a four-wheel drive vehicle and head out to the dunes on any of the northern Outer Banks areas, with Corolla and Carova being the most popular locations. If you prefer to let someone else do the driving so you can snap some photographs, we recommend the following guided tours. Call ahead to confirm that you can bring your four-legged family member:
