The Virginian-Pilot recently ran an article, Tourist spending in Outer Banks sets a record in 2012,  After reading the article I wondered where the 2013 numbers would end up.  My personal feeling from living and working on the Outer Banks was that, Yes, it was going to be a record year.  So, I decided to see if things were leaning that way,and decided to take an informal poll of local business owners. 

Having recently met with Outer Banks business owners in a number of different industries it does appear that 2013 will be a record year for tourism along the Outer Banks.  From local restaurant and hotel owners to property managers the general thought was 2013 would be another record setting year.
