Spring and fall visitors will notice the popularity of kiteboarding on the Outer Banks the moment they ride down a stretch of soundfront highway. In the off-season months, it's not unusual to spot dozens if not hundreds of multi-colored kites lining the skies over the Outer Banks' miles of sound waters.
In business since 1983, Professional Opticians sells the latest designer sunglasses as well as the best trendy and classic frames for corrective glasses. But what’s great about this store is that it owned by an independent local licensed optician who can fill prescriptions from any doctor. She knows about the products she sells, and she can provide the personal service you need when choosing eyewear. Each spring, she visits the Vision Expo, a large trade show in New York City, to find the latest and greatest in eyewear. Brands at the store include Ray-Ban, Esprit, Costa Del Mar, Maui Jim, Guess, and Liz Claiborne. Whether you need sunglasses for driving, fishing, athletics or just to look cool, you can find them here.
