On a recent family reunion trip to the Outer Banks, we visited Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head, North Carolina. This state park is home to the tallest sand dunes on the East Coast. If you can brave the heat — the dunes are usually 20-30 degrees hotter than the air temperature — it’s quite an experience!
Besides self-guided walks, many people take hang-gliding lessons here, although these looked too strenuous for my vacation. Many people go sand-boarding and sledding too. We saw a group of teenagers sledding down the dunes on flattened cardboard boxes — I would definitely try this on our next visit. While the sand dunes mix well with a beach vacation, I felt like I was a million miles away from our beach house. This is what made it such an adventure!
