What draws you to pick a certain vacation spot? Perhaps you are an outdoors enthusiast and the number of things you can do outside is what guides your decision-making. Maybe you are one who loves arts and culture so galleries and museums are your thing or shops and boutiques where you can stroll and window shop to your hearts content is what makes a great location. Or, you may be the kind that just truly wants to escape—a place to relax and unwind and forget out the cares of this world. The truth is that the Outer Banks has it all! No matter what kind of getaway you want, our little piece of heaven offers something for everyone and if you are a true foodie, we’ve got plenty of amazing restaurants and fabulous events such as the Outer Banks Shrimp Cook-Off!
The Outer Banks Shrimp Cook-Off is an annual event that is held at the Ocean Boulevard Bistro & Martini Bar in Kitty Hawk, NC, with a mission to raise money for The Outer Banks Center for Dolphin Research. This year this very popular event will be taking place November 6th, 2016 from 12-3pm. This cook-off brings in as many as ten local chefs to compete for the ultimate prize of best shrimp dish through votes given by attendees. So far this year’s list of competitors include chefs from The Bad Bean Grill, Coastal Cravings, Beachside Bistro, Bluewater Grill, The Saltbox Café, Coastal Provisions Market, and Café Lachine. Tickets are $20 and you can purchase in advance or at the door. In addition to the cooking competition there is also an impressive silent auction.
Our bed and breakfast is a quaint and elegant historic Victorian home and is the perfect choice for accommodations during your time here. We offer a fantastic gourmet, homemade breakfast each morning, afternoon and evening refreshments, and concierge services for whatever you might need during your stay. Come see us this fall—it’s always beautiful on the Outer Banks!
