If you have ever considered booking Outer Banks vacation rentals, make a point of seeing the wild horses. The Outer Banks of North Carolina is one of the few places that you can see wild mustangs roaming free. These mustangs are descendants of the Spanish mustangs which arrived almost 500 years ago.
Once numbering in the 1000s, these horses roam the full length of the Outer Banks, from Shackleford Banks, all along Core Banks, Ocracoke, Hatteras, and on northward beyond Corolla on Currituck Banks. They are protected by state and federal laws.
