Decided to walk instead of driving to the shops. Easy walk to view the sound side of Duck. Markers easy to read and understand your location. Even nice and clean after hurricane Michael.

It’s pleasant, accessible, surprisingly extensive and offers amazing views of the sound. Lots of interesting little stores along the way and numerous water birds too. Don’t miss this chance to get close to the water and experience the charm of Duck.

Nice walk about a mile long along the sound side of the town of Duck, NC! You can see wildlife and shops along the way!

A special place for viewing the sound and taking wonderful photos! We spend time on every visit. Our son especially loved walking and taking pics of the surrounding areas in each particular spot on his way.

The boardwalk is very nice and well maintained, but many of the shops were closed (granted, it is considered the “off-season”). We walked around for a bit and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and then left.

Loved the Duck Town boardwalk. Perfect to view a sunset or sunrise. Great for a nice stroll, to shop or enjoy a relaxing morning or evening

Enjoyed many nice walks with our extended family on the boardwalk, from 2 years old in a stroller to my 70+ year old parents. Lots of pretty views and fun little shops to explore. You could never go hungry, either, with all of the food...More

We love this boardwalk! What a brilliant idea to maximize walking space in a crowded town during tourist season. Sunset views amazing!

If you go during the summer (between Memorial Day and Labor Day) the stores do have evening hours (8-9). Before/after then, most close early (5-6p).
