The Outer Banks Media Trip
North Carolina - USA
May 2018

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Outer Banks, NC

Five IFWTWA Journalists were welcomed by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau to visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina, also known as the OBX. The four islands that make up the OBX are home to half a dozen national and state parks with rich stories dating back to the first English colony in the New World at Roanoke Island, the Wright Brothers’ first flight near Kitty Hawk, and the tallest lighthouse at Cape Hatteras. Our journalists enjoyed diverse local fare from several restaurants including Kimball’s Kitchen, Coastal Provisions Oyster Bar and OBX Trio, Wind, Beer & Cheese. They were able to really get a sense of where the local food comes from in the Outer Banks by visiting oyster bars, oyster farms, a sea salt farmstead and taking a crabbing and shrimping charter.
