Hi! My name is Tilly. I am a Rat Terrier mix and I love to travel with my mom, Marinda. I have a new feature on my favorite animal hospital’s blog, where I will be sharing tips from my travels for my fellow canine comrades who also love to explore the world. Here we go!

The Trip Low-Down:

  • Currituck Heritage Park
  • Duck, NC
  • Manteo, NC

Corolla, NC

  • Currituck Heritage Park and Lighthouse

My mommy didn’t take me up to the Currituck Lighthouse. She took me up to a lighthouse once, and I was so scared when my mom carried me up and down the spiral staircase. We don’t go up to lighthouses anymore. We did take pictures of the lighthouse. The park has a trail that gives you a little history of the landmarks in the park. It has a nice walk through the wetland. It also has a historical village.

Duck, NC

  • Duck Boardwalk

The Town of Duck finally finished their 1-mile boardwalk located on the Currituck Sound side. The boardwalk connects several shopping area. You no longer have to drive from one shopping area to another. Duck is a very dog friendly town, but not all shops and restaurants are dog friendly. We had lunch at Coastal Cantina on the boardwalk, and my mom said that the food was okay.

  • Duck Donuts

Duck Donuts was originally from Duck, NC. They are everywhere in Outer Banks. It now has locations in Virginia Beach, Williamsburg, and Herndon, and soon, Fairfax and Bristow. You get to choose the icing and topping, and the donuts are yummy. They taste better when warm; microwave it for about 10 seconds.

Manteo, NC

  • Elizabethan Gardens

The gardens is beautiful. It has an admission fee, and it is dog friendly. My mom took me there in November, and they had Christmas decorations all through the gardens.

  • Waterfront Marina

The Marina area is very small. It has some shops and restaurants. It is a nice walk around the marina. We ate at Full Moon Café and Brewery. They have a petfriendly patio.
