Planning Your OBX Beach Vacation

Planning Your OBX Beach Vacation

So you want to head to the beach.  Where do we go?  Where do we stay? What are we bringing?  What are we going to see and do?  Where and what will we eat?  Now is the time to start planning for your trip!

Where do we go?

But of course we will be going to America’s favorite coast!  The Outer Banks of North Carolina.  You’ll have to decide what area of the OBX to visit.  Whether it’s the Northern most area of Carova or Corolla in Currituck County, or down past Hatteras, there is plenty of space for everyone.  Each area is unique onto its own, with a different look and feel.  Of course we are partial to Kill Devil Hills, which is why we decided to buy here.  It’s got a little bit of everything all around you.

Where do we stay?

Will you be looking to stay in a hotel, motel, beachfront home, soundside home, condo, cottage or beach box?  The answer will depend on a comnbination of preference as well as budget.  That being said, you’ll also have to consider how many people you’ll be going with as well as taking into account how much cooking you’ll want to do.  Not to be neglected is the question again about what you’ll have around you as far as food and entertainment.  If you want to have everything around you with enough room for 6, and still have money leftover to be able to enjoy your vacation, the practicality of a condo has much to offer.

What are we bringing?

You’ll have to decide on whether you want to bring absolutely nothing or are ok with saving some money and bringing a few items with you.  If you’re staying with us, please ask for any specifics as well as consulting the site to sew

What and where will we eat?

Are you looking to eat out for the different meals while on vacation?  Will you want to cook your own meals to save some money or even to sample the local seafood on your own?  Depending on those questions, we have compiled various recommendations that are supplied to you when you stay with us.
