The Recipe for a Great Thanksgiving in Corolla

October 30, 2012
When you think of Thanksgiving, you likely envision a cozy long weekend at home or at your parents’ or grandparents’ house. Thanksgiving is a time for families to come together and enjoy the blessings in their lives – great food, great company, and overall health and happiness. These days, it’s not uncommon for families to make Thanksgiving a destination holiday. Turkey is turkey no matter where you travel – and even if you prefer something different for dinner you can find what you need at a favorite restaurant or through an awesome catering service. In the northern Outer Banks, specifically Corolla, families take advantage of lower rental rates and will gather together at any of the marvelous beach homes along our coast for a memorable Thanksgiving weekend. With a bit of extra time off you can make the holiday fun!

The perfect recipe for a Currituck Thanksgiving:

One comfortable Outer Banks beach rental with room for the whole family.

Great food! Whether you raid the local grocery stores for nibbles or decide to have an Outer Banks catering company do all the cooking, you’ll definitely eat well here.

A great place for sightseeing before and after dinner. Currituck Heritage Park is open year round, and it’s a great place to walk off that pumpkin pie…or work up an appetite for seconds. If you want to climb the lighthouse, be warned that it is closed on Thanksgiving Day and doesn’t re-open until the spring. Get there early in your trip.

Don’t forget, too, that the Corolla wild horses spend Thanksgiving on the shores and dunes. Why not book a tour for the whole family to see these amazing animals. What a great way to create holiday memories!
