Off the coast of North Carolina is a chain of barrier islands known as the Outer Banks. These islands draw tourists from many miles around to experience their beaches, historic lighthouses, and wilderness areas. The Federal Highway Administration has designated the Outer Banks National Scenic Byway to highlight the best the Outer Banks experience has to offer to an aspiring visitor. This 137-mile (220-km) route follows portions of NC 12 and US 70 through the islands. It is one of only 150 scenic byways FHWA has so designated.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation posts unique blue markers along the length of the Outer Banks National Scenic Byway. This marker depicts the North Carolina shoreline, including one of its sandy beaches. In the foreground is a boat atop a bed of coastal grasses. In the background is a depiction of one of the Outer Banks’ famous lighthouses.
Our Outer Banks National Scenic Byway marker is a recreation of the genuine markers found along this noted byway. It uses a completely accurate layout and fonts derived from photographs taken of markers in the field. With our recreated marker, you can bring a piece of the Outer Banks home with you, without depriving other visitors of the guidance the signs provide. It makes a great addition to a man cave, bar, or to flesh out a collection of nautically-themed home decor.
Our version of this sign is flat printed on heavy steel, for quality and durability, indoors or out. We’ve made it available in four sizes, from 8 × 16 inches all the way up to 24 × 48 inches. All sizes have pre-drilled mounting holes to simplify hanging them. Our sign is non-reflective, making it an excellent display piece. (If you need a sign in a different size, just contact Jake to place a custom order.)
