Celebrate the Holiday Season at the Beach!

November 30, 2009
If you haven’t yet been to the Outer Banks this year, it’s not too late! December is actually a terrific time to come to the North Carolina shore and spend time with family and friends in a gorgeous vacation rental on the beach.

If you’re thinking everything’s going to be closed for the season, think again. You can still check out a number of local eateries catering to our winter guests. Though you may not be able to go swimming, there’s still plenty of good fishing and sailing to enjoy, just dress appropriately. With the worst of the hurricane warnings behind us, visitors to Currituck can enjoy long walks on the beach and even a trip up to the Whalehead Club for holiday-themed activities. It is especially nice to come see our historic sites during the holidays, when this former home of the rich and famous is brightened during our Grand Illumination on December 12.

Nearby Wrangler Farms also hosts an annual Christmas on the Farm celebration, with horse-drawn rides and hot chocolate, and the opportunity to visit Santa Claus for last-minute instructions.

Don’t forget to visit our main site for detailed calendars and directions. Happy holidays!
