Here’s How You Can Enjoy Holiday Dinners in Corolla and Currituck

November 9, 2022

How would you describe your family’s holiday feasts? Do you prefer the traditional fare of turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie? Perhaps you like to shake things up at the Thanksgiving table with seafood or all vegetarian dishes. Maybe turkey isn’t to your tastes, and you scroll your phone looking for that one pizza delivery spot open on Thanksgiving. Whatever your crave this season, when you gather the family for the fall holidays in Corolla we are happy to help satisfy your appetites.

One advantage to renting a vacation home in Corolla or Carova Beach is that there’s plenty of room for extended relatives and friends. Over the years, we’ve welcomed many multi-generational families to our beaches for the fall and winter holidays. Among the amenities included in our beach rentals are contemporary kitchens for cooking and/or staging big dinners, and spacious dining areas where everyone can sit together and give thanks. Once you’ve booked the perfect house for your stay, next comes planning the big holiday dinner. While Corolla offers a remote setting for your fall or winter vacation, you do have options.
