Hi all - Complete newb here. Just got my Mavic Pro and was planning on flying it on vacation in NC this summer. I know how to unlock FlySafe zones, but not sure how to do it for the Outer Banks in NC. It seems there are many overlaping areas in the spot I want to fly (Carolla/Duck). The one green pin I click on that seems to be the center pin for the region doesn't allow me to unlock it?

I hope the picture I tried to insert will describe where/what I am trying to do.

Any ideas?

As near as I can tell, recreational drone flying is allowed on the Outerbanks, with some limitations. At the county level, there is a page about drone flying that prohibits you from flying from areas administered by the National Parks Service (some of the beaches, the lighthouses). The town of Nags Head passed some additional restrictions last year.  Just best to check local laws out there.
