It might seem tricky to fit in all the attractions, historical sites, and fun activities off the beach into an Outer Banks vacation, and still have plenty of time left over to just lounge on the sand. That said, there are a number of attractions up and down the North Carolina coastline that any new visitor would be remiss to miss.
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.
There is child care offered while you workout (check with Member Services Desk for hours) a sauna in each locker room, family changing rooms, a hot tub and two group exercise studios on premises.
Year round group exercise classes are offered such as TRX, Barre, Tai Chi, Zumba, and Yoga. To see a full list of classes check out the YMCA website at www.ymcashr.org/OuterBanks.
Memberships are available and weekly and daily passes are offered to visitors. This facility is associated with the YMCA of South Hampton Roads.
