If you like to walk on a road less taken, this place is a must-visit for you. A maritime forest that is still untouched and is filled with marshes and brackish swamplands. You can access it from two parking lots: David Paul Pruitt Park and Sandy Run Park. There are provisions for both a quiet leisure time or thrilling activities like paddleboarding, hiking, etc. 

And if you want to sit alone admiring the sunsets and the wildlife, they’re there for you too.

Like any other Outer Banks beach town, if you genuinely want to experience the whole town, you must try the beautiful beachfront vacation rentals in Southern Shores. A perfect country home, featuring all the necessary amenities and more. Have a look around before finalizing the one, because this will be your home away from home.

5. Sandy Run Park

Last but not least, you have to visit the place if you need to witness nature in its true form. There is a beautiful gazebo for you to sit and relax, and you can even feed turtles there. That’s right! Friendly turtles who just want some food and some love.

You can also try fishing here, but it is a catch and release system.

Southern Shores is a town that welcomes you with open arms and so much warmth. The food, the view, and the people here will make your stay comfortable. A perfect break from city life, once you visit this place, you will start recommending it to your friends. A quaint, peaceful town is the therapy we all need.
