Thousands Of Sea Shells Cover The Outer Banks Beaches With No Tourists Around

Meanwhile in North Carolina: Without loads of tourists packing into the outer banks during the stay-at-home directive this month, hoards of seashells have been accumulating on many of the state’s beaches. It’s a natural occurrence, of course, but not one that many truly anticipated – since we’re preoccupied with settling into new routines to best navigate the pandemic and stay safe.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

What are your plans for when it’s safe to travel again? Where in North Carolina will you be heading: to the beach or the mountains? We’d love to hear what scenic spots in North Carolina you miss the most! Tell us about them so we can feature them here.
