The last few years we rented a house in Nags Head but this year we are going farther south-Avon
Can anyone give us any idea about that area-Is the beach about the same?
Are ther grocery stores close by?
Are there many stores in the area?
Thanks for any help you can give me:)

Avon is bounded to the north

by Federal land and bounded to the south by Federal land. It is a village that cannot expand which makes it very nice. There is a Food Lion in the shopping center that used to be(when we owned in Avon) spic and span.
The beaches come and go with the surf conditions. Overall we liked the area very much. Enjoy!
