Reunions

Tired of cramming your family reunion into one long afternoon around a backyard barbecue grill? Do you wish you had more time to reconnect with your loved ones? Make your next reunion a memorable occasion by bringing your family to the Currituck Outer Banks! With a destination family reunion, you'll have the opportunity to catch up and make lasting memories, all while enjoying an array of activities in a relaxing, fun-filled location.

No matter what time of year you plan your reunion, your family will love spending a week together in Currituck. Summertime offers a perfect opportunity to combine a family reunion with a beach  getaway, while the fall and winter holiday seasons are a great time to create new Thanksgiving or Christmas traditions. Beach rental homes are also easy on the vacation budget. With family members sharing the costs, a destination reunion to Currituck is a surprisingly affordable reality.

Family Fun

Keeping family members entertained won't be a problem at the Currituck Outer Banks. There are many attractions, tours, and indoor/outdoor activities to enjoy.

Water Sports - Explore pristine marshes and secluded waters on a kayak eco-tour. Zip across the Currituck Sound on a jet ski, or soar high into the sky while parasailing. Those looking to catch a wave can rent a board or take surf lessons from local surf companies.

Golf - Hit the greens at the award-winning Currituck Club golf course, or teach the little ones how to get a hole-in-one while playing a round of mini-golf.

Wild Horses - For a truly memorable experience, families can take a tour to see the Corolla Wild Horses. Experienced guides will show you where these horses live, while teaching you about local ecology and history.

Fishing - Cast out past the breakers while surf fishing on the beaches, or troll the open ocean on a charter boat. The Currituck Sound provides calmer waters that are also great for fishing and crabbing.

Historical Sites - At Currituck Heritage Park, visitors can climb to the top of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse for stunning panoramic views of the coastline. Tour the opulent Whalehead Club, or learn about local wildlife at the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education.

Dine - The Outer Banks offers a wide selection of restaurants. Featuring seafood, bar-be-cue and other fare.

Activities for Children

  • The Currituck Outer Banks also offers a wide selection of fun-filled activities designed specifically with children, and the young at heart, in mind.

  • The SEAL (Safety Education and Aquatic Learning) Program is open to children ages 7-14. Corolla Ocean Rescue instructors teach about the ocean, first aid, and physical fitness. Adults are invited to attend a free seminar offered at the same time.

  • Kids can race go-karts around a large track or play in bumper cars at Corolla Raceway.

  • Skate the 5000 sq. ft. outdoor skateboarding park at the Corolla Light Town Center.

  • Take the kids to Kitty Hawk Kites in TimBuck II where they can learn how to rock climb on a 26 foot outdoor climbing wall.

  • At the Whalehead Club, children will enjoy hunting for treasure while learning about geography and navigation. Each child receives a prize!

  • Listen to spooky tales about pirates and shipwrecks during ghost tours at the Whalehead Club. Reservations are recommended.

  • The Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education offers free programs for kids of all ages, including: eco-kayaking, surf fishing, nature photography, and more.

  • The Wild Horse Museum has a variety of activities allowing children to paint wild horses, pet a gentled Spanish Mustang, and even take pony rides.

Planning Tips

To make the most of your family reunion, plan your trip early and gather input from all involved before you leave. That way, you'll spend your time here enjoying the occasion rather than fretting over details.

  • Get a consensus on the best possible date so everyone can be included.

  • Give plenty of advance notice; that way family members can arrange time off from work and/or school.

  • Let everyone view online photos and information on rental homes before making a selection. Rental agencies have extensive online listings, making it easy for everyone to participate in the house selection process.

  • Send out information to relatives - especially those with children - regarding activities and attractions in the area. Survey them on preferred activities.

  • Assign bedrooms and sleeping arrangements ahead of time, based on house information and the number of relatives attending. This will save time during the unpacking and moving-in phase when everyone arrives.

  • Have special "reunion" t-shirts printed before you go. Wearing these as a group on the beach makes for a unique keepsake photo.

  • Assign individual families a night to cook dinner and clean the kitchen for the group.

  • For a special evening, have dinner out or hire a personal chef to cook a meal at your rental home so the whole group can have a relaxing evening together.

  • Designate "on your own" time to let individuals or small families do their own thing.

Need planning information for the whole group? Call the Welcome Center at 877-287-7488 and we'll mail you FREE copies of the Currituck Outer Banks Visitor's Guide for the whole family!  You can also build your very own reunion website to share with the rest of your family members.
