Sweet Summertime on the Outer Banks

It’s the time of year we all love…the shores come alive, we kick off our flip flops and finally relax in the endless sunshine. Sweet summertime is here again and it’s time to take back your vacation. Make this year an unforgettable journey as you explore the magic that has drawn adventurers to our shores for hundreds of years. The kids are out of school and the entire family is itching to get out of the house and find something new to occupy their time. Luckily, falling in love with the Outer Banks is as easy as ABC.

A week-long trip to the Outer Banks means plenty of time to try everything. Lighthouses are open, 4x4 driving is available on the southern beaches, watersports are beginning to thrive. The OBX offers many different forms of accommodations ranging from large vacation rental homes, to comfortable B&Bs, to four star resorts and even hotel rentals for those weekend-goers. Finding the right rental for your group is a breeze and we can help! Hang poolside and grill out at our soundfront or oceanfront homes. Don’t feel like cooking, hey that’s no problem because many restaurants offer catering and family-style seafood options to-go.

Balmy Temps and Breezy Beach Days

The beach. It has many meanings for different folks. A place to meditate, to sunbathe, to meticulously sculpt a sandcastle, to dream, or simply to get away from it all. The high temps warm up the water and our light ocean breeze complements the heavenly sound of crashing waves. These newly nourished shores provide softer sands and longer oceanfront to stretch out a beach towel. Rent beach wagons or canopy tents to help turn work into leisure.

The islands fill with tons of energy as travelers flock to the coast. Events move outdoors, rain or shine, all day long. Jazz, rock, folk music festivals, opportunities to see local artists and crafters, and much more are happening around town. Enjoy drinks by the water either on a pier, dock, or marina, where any seat in the house is the best seat in the house. So let's spend summer checking items off our Outer Banks Bucket List and document the entire trip using the hashtag #OBXnow. Forget ABC, OBX is the most iconic trio of letters for this sunny season.
