Long before the summer vacationing families discovered the Outer Banks as a hot tourist destination, fishermen from across the country flocked to coastal North Carolina. With no roads to navigate, and no vacation homes to stay in, anglers would brave the makeshift sandy paths that ran along thebeaches, and would set up makeshift campsites whenever there was protection from the wind and waves. They went through great efforts to visit the Outer Banks for one reason: Exceptional fishing.
The Outer Banks Family YMCA is a great place for all ages. Programming offered for children, teens, and adults to stay active in mind, body, or spirit. Equipped with everything from the two outdoor pools which are opened seasonally, a fitness center, a full-court gymnasium, racquetball courts and an indoor pool-there is something for everyone! The workout room includes, free weights, treadmills, cardio machines, weight machines, stationary bikes and a MotionCage.
The six-lane, 25-meter aquatic center has a lifeguard on duty at all times, and swim lessons and aquatic exercise classes are available throughout the year.
