Currituck - Robert Heikens

By: Robert Heikens

Currituck County may be a small county in size compared to others in North Carolina, but it's huge in so many ways. I have lived here since 1993 and have found that this area has some really wonderful people in it.The small town atmosphere might not appeal to everyone, but the people in this community care for each other and their neighbors.

This county is truly a sportmans paradise with hunting and fishing being a part of many locals everyday lives! The commercial fishermen, crabbers, oyster harvesters, hunting guides, and all the various markets and businesses work to make this area a great place to live and raise a family!  The miles of beautiful beaches, the beauty of the ocean and our sounds attracts people to this area from all over the world. The summertime here can be hectic for locals because of the traffic situations but it does help our local economy and patrons also so it's an inconvenience we live with and have adapted to! The new proposed bridge could help alleviate some of the traffic backups, maybe it won't, maybe we need another option! Whatever happens, the local people adapt and move forward, we will always move forward!

Currituck people are always willing to help others in need and the outpouring of help to the Wounded Warrior program and their duck hunting trips  over the last several years here in Currituck was again a success! The community even put together an awesome escort out of town to the state line with full Fire Department, EMT, Police, local citizens and motorcycle riders following these men with crowds of people waving banners and flags by the side of the road! It was an amazing day! The support of one of our own veteran on the beach, the love the people showed this man was remarkable, but the man is quite remarkable himself and was very humbled by the generous support from the local people! Mobility May OBX brings veterans down for a weekend of jetpaking, pier fishing, charter boat fishing, provide housing and food from great businesses that help support our love for our disabled veterans, and hope this year more can be added!

Currituck has so much to offer, motorsports are a big part of this community also, mud racing parks,motocross and Atv tracks, Drag race tracks, go cart tracks, late model and stock car tracks, and truck and tractor pulling tracks! Almost every kind of motorsports is covered and we are the home to the World famous Gravedigger Racing Shop and Dennis Anderson and his wonderful family that do alot for our community and the kids as well as numerous charities they are involved with! If you can't find something fun and wonderful to do in our "SPORTSMANS PARADISE", you just haven't looked outside or drove around, it's an amazing place to live!
