suggestion for vegetarian restaurant

by arubaba

Has anyone had experience with a restaurant which serves good vegetarian selection at Nags Head ? If not, any suggestions for farmers market / local deli are welcome.

Re: suggestion for vegetarian restaurant

by Travmad

The only place I can think of is La Fogata Mexican Restaurant right along the main highway towards the north end of Kitty Hawk. Although The Pit could have some good Veg fare as they are a surfer bar/restaurant. Good luck and please post what you find. Have a great trip.

Travel Tips for Nags Head

Isabelle Storm

by LizMary

Hubby and I went to Outer Banks during Thanksgiving weekend last year-2003. I remember the weather was warm-almost 70! They had JUST opened up the very southern tip of OBX, and some areas were still not passable. The storm really did severe damage, I took some pics-really sad. Building torn to shreds. I went to OBX the summers of 2000 an 2001, then last year -Nov. 2003. I always did like OBX...nice people, weather, scenes-I wouldn't mind living there!

Comfort Inn (formerly the Ramada Inn)

by b1bob

The Ramada Inn (now a Comfort Inn) is a seven-storey high hotel. To this date, it is the tallest hotel in the northern Outer Banks. I stayed in the former Ramada Inn in August, 1975 and June, 1977. Last time I was there, the restaurant was on the second floor with an eye-level view of the ocean (the first floor consisted only of the lobby). There were two pools- a standard pool for the adults and older children and a smaller, more shallow one for the little nippers. There was also a poolside snackbar. This hotel was conveniently located right on the beach so all we needed to do was take the lift down, pass the pool area, and get to the beach. In 1977, we came here after the Holiday Inn relegated us to dune level due to a medical convention. Ramada Inn hooked us up with a kitchenette on the 4th floor. Believe it or not, I preferred old room 623 from 2 years before.

Customer satisfaction: 5 stars. If VT had a 6th star, I'd use that one too!
(I hope the Comfort Inn is a fraction as good as the old Ramada Inn.)

I have no idea how much it cost us to stay per night in 1975 and 1977. However, the Comfort Inn is in the $180 + per night range for an oceanfront room with two beds in high summer.

Take a long walk

by tpangelinan

These are some of the cleanest beaches we've seen, very few people as far as you can see, it could be due to the cost of renting a beach front home. Great for walks at night and very safe, not much crime around here.

Beach sandals

by b1bob

If you visit Nags Head during the peak travel season, the sand is hot during the day. To avoid doing the MALIBUGALOO (that dance folks with bare feet do on the hot sand) bring your sandals. Also, if you don't want your legs to look like they were roasted on satan's own spit, don't forget to use sunscreen on your legs.
