Most people who go to Duck end up finding the boardwalk but the town has really done a good job of extending the boardwalk to be exceptionally lovely. They have added solar lights and you can shop or eat along the way. Don't miss it!

Loved walking along the boardwalk - SO much nicer than trying to walk along the road. Access to the shops, restaurants, boat launch and the water views and the breezes were just charming.

This is a great place to shop and enjoy the scenic view. I think the shopping selection here is better than the other areas in Duck. Wish I had discovered this earlier, I would have spent more time here!

What a great addition to Duck! Great place to walk, crab, and watch the amazing sunsets! It is so much safer than walking next to the busy road! Walk to Wave Pizza and grab a pizza and a cold brew!

I really like the boardwalk now that they extended it from Tommy's Market all the way down to Wings. It hits all the shops along the way and has multiple access points for convenience. I also feel a lot safer walking on the broad walk...More

Wide path, lighted. Fishing and crabbing area. Goes from behind Winks in Duck to the Waterfront Shops with several access points. Worth a visit.

Loved the Boardwalk! We enjoyed our walk on the boardwalk, it connects the little shops along the bay and also has special areas to go crabbing. We saw many families using homemade 'crabbing' devices using these places! There are some nice places to get something...More

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).
