Emerald Isle is not actually part of the Outer Banks. It is, however, on a barrier island called Bogue Banks. I think most likely the original poster wants info on the area from Kitty Hawk to Ocracoke

I live in currituck county its just over the bridge from the outerbanks, the taxes are great!!!!! the town which i live is called grandy and its only 15 min from the obx beaches and way safer to live, i find the storms usually hit and go inland from hatteress and the salt damage from the ocean is not a problem on the mainland. Unfortune but my husband wants to move closer to where son will be going to school so house is for sale. but i really love it here. hey if anyones interested go to forsalebyowner and punch in grandy nc 27939 my taxes for a 3550 sq ft house with detached 2600 sq ft garage all brick ranch on 1.06 acres is only 1,404 per year!!!!

Default re

I lived nearby in Beaufort and worked in Morehead City. If you like a slow paced way of life, it's good, but if you like more things to do that are typically offered by higher populations, it's a place that you'll probably grow bored quickly in. The natural beauty is phenomenal. The outer banks are more sparsely populated than where I lived, and honestly, while it was beautiful, I grew bored with the area after a while. It's a nice area to visit, but it's very different actually living there. If you're older it would probably help too, not a lot of younger people in that area. If I were to move South and to the coast again (which I dont anticipate ever doing), I'd probably look into Wilmington.
