Stay, Play and Eat- Donuts, Ice Cream & Coffee Treats! Located on the Duck Boardwalk, behind Dockside Seafood, this breakfast & Dessert-Shop features treats you've never tasted before! Try the hot, made to order, donutz on a stick with more than 35 toppings! They'll melt in your mouth! Or try the Gluten-Free Donuts; limited quantities, daily. Plus, try any or all of the 9 flavors of homemade tastefully twisted soft serve. Frozen yogurt, sorbets, sherbet, hand dipped and homemade ice cream flavors.

 

Unique coffees, sodas and espresso that will satisfy the whole family. Mix-and-match nostalgic candies and much more. Bring the carnival to your mouth and eat it like nobody’s watchin’! Donutz-On-A-Stick- where visual stimulation meets taste bud overload!

 

Carnival Treats at the Beach—With Flavorful Creations and Allergy-Friendly Options, Donutz on a Stick Serves Up Sweet Treats for Everyone

 

David and Stephanie were not always in the business of carnival confections. In fact, Stephanie was a fitness instructor and David worked in the computer field. But he loved donuts and she loved ice cream, and when they saw an opportunity to bring their favorite treats to beachgoers, they jumped on it.

 

In 2014, the couple opened their first Donutz on a Stick—a family-run, family-friendly dessert shop on the boardwalk. They quickly realized that in order to serve everyone, they would need to get creative. “We had a family who would come in, and one of the little boys would have to wait by the door because of his gluten allergy,” David says. “That didn’t sit well with us. We wanted everyone to come under the same roof no matter what kind of allergies they had. And we continue to work towards that goal.”

 

The Williams’ daughter Desireé spent six weeks experimenting until she created a gluten-free donut that was totally safe and delicious. Gluten-free donuts are now a huge part of the business, with more than 1,000 being served each day, just out of the Duck location. But you will want to call or stop by to reserve them in advance.

 

The Williams’ other three children, David, Justin and Christian, have all invented menu items as well, such as Christian’s donut milkshake, which features hot and fresh cooked donuts blended into a milkshake with another donut on top making it picture perfect.

 

While all the Williams have created menu items, the most popular pick—the donut sundae—was actually a happy accident.

 

“We were being featured in a local magazine and we could only have one photo for the article,” David says. Since both ice cream and donuts were equally popular, “we built the donut sundae for the photo and we discovered after the photoshoot that it tasted amazing. It was completely serendipitous.”

 

The Williams family is constantly creating and improving upon their recipes. At the heart of it all is a desire to see everyone come in and enjoy an experience together. They want to bring the carnival to your mouth.

 

“No matter how busy we are—even if there’s a line down the boardwalk—every customer gets that engagement and service from us,” they say.

 

The family has since opened a second location in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area.

Series overview[edit]

Season 1 (2020)[edit]

Season 2 (2021)[edit]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

On May 3, 2019, it was announced that Netflix had given the production a series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. The series was created and executive produced by Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke.[4] The series was released on April 15, 2020.[5] On July 24, 2020, Netflix renewed the series for a second season which was released on July 30, 2021.[6][7]

Casting[edit]

Alongside the initial series announcement, it was reported that Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow, Charles Esten, Austin North, and Drew Starkey were cast in starring roles.[4] On July 2, 2019, Caroline Arapoglou joined the cast in a recurring role.[12] On October 22, 2020, Elizabeth Mitchell was cast in a recurring role for the second season.[10] On April 15, 2021, Carlacia Grant joined the cast in a recurring capacity for the second season.[9]

Filming[edit]

Co-creator Jonas Pate envisioned filming in Wilmington, North Carolina, but Netflix opted not to film the show there because of the state's House Bill 2 legislation.[13]Principal photography for the first season began on May 1, 2019, in Charleston, South Carolina.[14] Filming for the second season began on August 31, 2020 and concluded on April 2, 2021.[15][16][17]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

Steve Greene of IndieWire gave the series' first season a B- and wrote a review saying, "Some of those later confrontations buckle under the weight of their plot connecting, but when Outer Banks dials its melodrama to its own sweet spot, there's enough fun to keep a story-hungry audience following along the trail."[18] Reviewing the series for The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Fienberg described the series' first season as "pretty people, pretty cinematography, pretty dumb" and said, "the show is positively littered with characters and plot threads that feel like they might have been relevant or even important in a 13-episode season or a YA novel that offered more breathing room."[19]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season holds an approval rating of 71% based on 21 reviews, with an average rating of 6.72/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Outer Banks' over-the-top melodrama is balanced out by a strong sense of adventure that's bound to hook those looking to capture that summer feeling."[20] On Metacritic, it has a weighted average score of 61 out of 100 based on 9 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[21]

The second season has a 86% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 7 reviews, with an average rating of 6.70/10.[22]

Audience viewership[edit]

For the week of August 2 to 8, 2021, Outer Banks was ranked number one in the Nielsen ratings U.S. streaming chart, who announced that the show had been viewed for a total of 2.1 billion minutes of its 20 episodes.[23] For the following week, the series was ranked number one again in the Nielsen ratings U.S. streaming chart with a total of 1.16 billion total minutes of viewing for the 20 episodes.[24]

According to Netflix Top 10s, between July 26th and August 1st, 2021 the series accrued 322.59 million viewing hours globally on Netflix.[25]

Legal matter[edit]

On December 21, 2020, a North Carolina teacher and author named Kevin Wooten filed a lawsuit against Netflix and the creators of Outer Banks, claiming they stole the plot of his novel Pennywise: The Hunt For Blackbeard's Treasure!. Wooten is seeking for ongoing royalties and damages payments.[26][27]

If you can’t get enough of ‘Outer Banks’ on Netflix, here’s how to plan a trip there

While so many of us are cooped up at home, we’re all trying to find ways to pass the time and stay entertained — and often, this means a lot of television. A lot.

A few hit shows have gained overnight cult-status, including “Tiger King,” “Normal People” and, of course, “Outer Banks.”

The latter is currently streaming on Netflix, and features high school students trying to find a buried treasure off the coast of (you guessed it) the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

And while many of us aren’t traveling right now (and even though the actual filming is done largely in Charleston), the show still inspired us to start planning a trip to the Outer Banks when it’s safe to do so, and we know we’re not the only ones.

If you fall into that category, you’re in luck. You’ll want to bookmark this article so you can start planning your own Outer Banks adventure … buried treasure not included.

For more TPG news delivered each morning to your inbox, sign up for our daily newsletter.

How to get there

The Outer Banks (also known as OBX) are a narrow strip of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina, stretching along nearly half the state. The main areas are Northern Beaches, Roanoke Island and Dare Mainland and Hatteras.

The Northern Beaches, in particular, will be of interest to AvGeeks, since they’re the location of the Wright Brothers‘ first powered flight. Yes, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills are both situated on the Northern Beaches in the Outer Banks and are an easy must-visit.

If you’re coming from a land far, far away, your best bet is going to be to fly to Norfolk International Airport (ORF) in Virginia and then drive southwest to the Outer Banks. Delta offers nonstop flights from New York-JFK, Boston (BOS) and Atlanta (ATL); American flies nonstop from Philadelphia (PHL), Miami (MIA) and Charlotte (CLT); and United has nonstop flights from Newark (EWR), Washington, D.C. (IAD) and Chicago (ORD), just to name a few.

If that doesn’t work, another reasonable choice is flying into Raleigh-Durham International (RDU) in North Carolina. This airport is twice as far as Norfolk, but it’s a nice, scenic drive.

New to TPG? Read our Beginner’s Guide.

If you’re planning on driving in, there are a number of routes you can take, whether you’re looking for something more leisurely or searching for the most direct trip.

You can also take the ferry to get around the Outer Banks, although times vary depending on where you’re going. Be sure to check the schedule for more information.

Either way, you’ll want to queue up your favorite playlist and enjoy the ride.

Where to stay

While points hotels in the Outer Banks are somewhat limited, you do have options if that’s the route you want to go.

As far as Marriott hotels go, your best bet will be the TownePlace Suites Outer Banks Kill Devil Hills on the Northern Beaches. During the peak summer months, rates start at just $146 or 20,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night. Since it’s a Category 4 property, award nights can range from 20,000 to 30,000 points per night.

Related: The award traveler’s guide to Marriott Bonvoy

If you’re a Hilton loyalist, you have some choices here, too. There’s a Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk, as well as a Hampton Inn in Corolla. In the former, rates start at $173 per night, although most are between $200 and $300 per night. If you want to pay in points, you’ll have to fork over 31,000 to 70,000 points per night for standard rooms. But, when only nonstandard rooms are available, the points price can quickly get ridiculous. So, compare the award rates to TPG’s latest valuations of Hilton points to be sure you’re getting a good deal.

At the Hampton Inn, rates start at $183 or 25,000 to 80,000 points per night for standard rooms. During popular times of the year, only pricier nonstandard rooms may be available. Again, you may want to pay with cash if the points price makes your jaw drop. Keep in mind that many weekend nights are already sold out, so you’ll want to book sooner rather than later if you’re considering a trip this year.

Still, the Outer Banks is better known for charming, small motels and inns, rather than major chain hotels. For your summer escape, consider the White Doe Inn, Sanderling Resort and Surf Side Hotel. Rates at these hotels start at $215, $299 and $425, respectively.

There are also plenty of Airbnb properties, ranging from luxury to budget. Renting a house in the Outer Banks is a common way to be near the water and truly enjoy the area, especially if you’re getting together with other families or friends. Prices will drop dramatically if you can stay on off-peak dates, meaning just before or after kids get out of school for summer break.

For example, a house that is $2,000 for a week at the end of May or early June might be at least double that price when July rolls around. Of course, the farther you are from the waves, the less expensive the houses generally will be as well.

Whether you’re reserving a hotel, Airbnb or a private boutique property, travelers paying cash should use a credit card that earns you bonus points on hotel stays, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x) or the  Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2x).

What to do

First and foremost: The lighthouses. A trip to the Outer Banks isn’t complete without a trip to see the tallest lighthouse in America, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.

Kill Devil Hills offers wide beaches with lifeguards, big waves, public parking and the Avalon Pier for fishing. Nearby Nags Head is one of the oldest communities on the Outer Banks, so the town has a charming historic feel.

You should also carve time in your itinerary to visit Jockey’s Ridge, the East Coast’s highest sand dune. There’s nothing like watching the sunset here after a full day sightseeing or sunning on the beach.

No matter which part of the Outer Banks you’re staying in, we definitely recommend a drive up to the Northern Beaches to check out the Wright Brothers National Memorial. Whether you’re an AvGeek or not, you’ll be inspired and impressed by the monument and the incredible aviation history. Tickets start at $10 for adults and entry is free for children.

If you’re craving an adrenaline rush, check out Outer Banks Kayak Adventures in Nags Head. They offer a range of kayak and stand-up paddleboard excursions, including Nags Head morning and sunset tours; a nighttime bioluminescence tour; tours of Kitty Hawk forests and marshes; a Roanoke Island history; kayak trips for kids and more.

We also recommend a jeep tour to see the wild horses with a company such as Wild Horse Adventure Tours. While there’s no guarantee you’ll see wild horses on your trip, you’re guaranteed to have a ton of fun riding around with the top down.

Of course, you’re here for some prime rest and relaxation — so be sure to leave your itinerary open for plenty of lazy afternoons in the sun.

Where to eat

The Outer Banks is home to more than 100 locally-owned restaurants, and there’s something for everyone here … yes, even the pickiest one in your group.

There are few better ways to spend a beach vacation than enjoying fresh right on the shore, and Black Pelican is among our favorites. We’re craving oysters just thinking about it.

North Banks Restaurant & Raw Bar, The Blue Point and Coastal Provisions Oyster Bar & Wine Cafe are other top picks in the area. If you’re in the mood for North Carolina barbecue, be sure to keep High Cotton on your list. Stack ‘Em High has multiple locations throughout the Outer Banks, and is arguably one of the best ways to start your day.

You’ll also want to make a stop at the original Duck Donuts (something of a household name these days) that originated in the Outer Banks. If that doesn’t satisfy your sweet tooth, Big Buck’s Homemade Ice Cream is sure to do the trick.

Carol Sutton stars in Outer Banks season 2

Pope’s season long journey is about his family’s history. As artifacts from the past bring him closer and closer to a hidden truth, it becomes apparent he’ll need to see his great grandmother to learn about his family’s ties to Denmark Tanny.

To do this, Pope visits an assisted living community where his meemaw lives, and that is how Carol Sutton is introduced to the Outer Banks audience. We learn, as Pope does, that through her line he is a direct descendant of Tanny whose rich and tragic history has led to more than one treasure hunt.

Sutton embodies the place our elders hold in our communities. They’re the keepers of our history, the ones who choose what history shall be passed on to the next generation, and what’s better left in the past.

Her role on Outer Banks is one of the last times the actress brought her talent to the screen. Sutton died on December 10, 2020. She had a long and storied career having made her debut in 1974 in the TV movie The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman.

Sutton tread the boards of the theater and starred on both the big and small screen over the course of her 46 years as an actress. Her career was honored in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana where she received a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.

An outpouring of love came in the wake of Sutton’s passing. The mayor of New Orleans, LaToya Cantrell, had the following to say about the actress’ life:

Carol Sutton was practically the queen of New Orleans theatre, having graced the stages across the city for decades. We will always remember her commanding stage presence, her richly portrayed characters and the warm heart she shared with her fellow cast.

Had Sutton not contracted Covid-19, she would have likely continued to act. However, she passed due to complications from the virus. She was 76 years old.

If you fall into that category, you’re in luck. You’ll want to bookmark this article so you can start planning your own Outer Banks adventure … buried treasure not included.

How to get there

The Outer Banks (also known as OBX) are a narrow strip of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina, stretching along nearly half the state. The main areas are Northern Beaches, Roanoke Island and Dare Mainland and Hatteras.

The Northern Beaches, in particular, will be of interest to AvGeeks, since they’re the location of the Wright Brothers‘ first powered flight. Yes, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills are both situated on the Northern Beaches in the Outer Banks and are an easy must-visit.

If you’re coming from a land far, far away, your best bet is going to be to outer banks car show to Norfolk International Airport (ORF) in Virginia and then drive southwest to the Outer Banks. Delta offers nonstop flights from New York-JFK, Boston (BOS) and Atlanta (ATL); American flies nonstop from Philadelphia (PHL), Miami (MIA) and Charlotte (CLT); and United has nonstop flights from Newark (EWR), Washington, D.C. (IAD) and Chicago (ORD), just to name a few.

If that doesn’t work, another reasonable choice is flying into Raleigh-Durham International (RDU) in North Carolina. This airport is twice as far as Norfolk, but it’s a nice, scenic drive.

If you’re planning on driving in, there are a number of routes you can take, whether you’re looking for something more leisurely or searching for the most direct trip.

You can also take the ferry to get outer banks car show the Outer Banks, although times vary depending on where you’re going. Be sure to check the schedule for more information.

Either way, you’ll want to queue up your favorite playlist and enjoy the ride.

Where to stay

While points hotels in the Outer Banks are somewhat limited, you do have options if that’s the route you want to go.

As far as Marriott hotels go, your best bet will be the TownePlace Suites Outer Banks Kill Devil Hills on the Northern Beaches. During the peak summer months, rates start at just $146 or 20,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night. Since it’s a Category 4 property, award nights can range from 20,000 to 30,000 points per night.

If you’re a Hilton loyalist, you have some choices here, too. There’s a Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk, as well as a Hampton Inn in Corolla. In the former, rates start at $173 per night, although most are between $200 and $300 per night. If you want to pay in points, you’ll have to fork over 31,000 to 70,000 points per night for standard rooms. But, when only nonstandard rooms are available, the points price can quickly get ridiculous. So, compare the award rates to TPG’s latest valuations of Hilton points to be sure you’re getting a good deal.

At the Hampton Inn, rates start at $183 or 25,000 to 80,000 points per night for standard rooms. During popular times of the year, only pricier nonstandard rooms may be available. Again, you may want to pay with cash if the points price makes your jaw drop. Keep in mind that many weekend nights are already sold out, so you’ll want to book sooner rather than later if you’re considering a trip this year.

Still, the Outer Banks is better known for charming, small motels and inns, rather than major chain hotels. For your summer escape, consider the White Doe Inn, Sanderling Resort and Surf Side Hotel. Rates at these hotels start at $215, $299 and $425, respectively.

There are also plenty of Airbnb properties, ranging from luxury to budget. Renting a house in the Outer Banks is a common way to be near the water and truly enjoy the area, especially if you’re getting together with other families or friends. Prices will drop dramatically if you can stay on off-peak dates, meaning just before or after kids get out of school for summer break.

For example, a house that is $2,000 for a week at the end of May or early June might be at least double that price when July rolls around. Of course, the farther you are from the waves, the less expensive the houses generally will be as well.
