Jockeys Ridge

As a first time visitor to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, I had never heard of Jockeys Ridge State Park. The park is located in Nags Head, and it contains sand dunes that vary in height from 80 to 100 feet. The sand makes it look like a desert.

People climb a sand dune to run, roll or ride a boogie board to the bottom.



The park includes a hang gliding school. The wind was strong during my time there.


Get out of the water, kid! Pools of water in the park help support sensitive wildlife.
