  1. I’ve been to North Carolina and it is beautiful! I have never heard of the Outer Banks though. This place is interesting! Full of war and historical battles. Ever since I seen the movie Aquaman, I would like to tour a lighthouse. It must be somewhat of a romantic spot if couples are getting married there. This review has a wealth of history information in it, so I pinned it to my Travel board. Thank you for sharing!

  2. We live in SC and no vacation for us this year. Too scary.


Thank you for dropping by! I would love to hear what you thought. :)
