The little resort village of Duck earned its name from the vast amount of waterfowl in the area. As it lies in the migratory path for these birds, the abundance did more than coin the area's name - it also brought many hunters. In the 1800's many different hunting clubs appeared to help with the over abundance of the species. But as is true with any abundant resource, it soon found itself being tapped to scarcity. As a result, the government implemented wildlife protection laws to ensure the safety of these animals and most is now protected ground. Visitors come to watch these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.

While this sleepy residential area is quaint and hoses some rental cottages and fewer condominiums, it still has fine dining and shopping. There are many different types of shops in the village. Vacationers can find anything from surf and skating shops to toy stores and specialty gift shops, like the Farmer's Daughter that specializes in coastal decor, collectibles and gifts. With no hotels and only one Bed and Breakfast, most visitors find a home on the beach. Here, however, there are many water sport activities: adventure sports, boat and water craft rentals, as well as bicycle rentals and surfing lessons. With few commercial centers in the area, the quiet peacefulness of duck from sea to sound is why so many love the beautiful area.
