Last days of August

The thing about summer on the Outer Banks, if flies by. It is already August, well, the end of August, and while there are still lots of visitors here, most of the families with school aged children have already been here. Our local children started school today and I think by next Monday, school will have begun almost everywhere.

Where do the locals go?

It seems like one of the most popular questions we get asked is "Tells us where we should go...places that locals know about...not the places that everyone goes to". Well, that list is long and very varied but I will try. Of course it all depends on what you are interested in. For this post I am going to focus on museums, art galleries, etc.

It's Already August

We wait and wait for summer and then BOOM, it is here. But, it goes by very quickly. Many schools will be starting in just a few weeks and by the end of the month, things slow down...just a bit.

Owens Restaurant Nags Head a NC

Great Seafood, Owen's Restaurant on the Beach road

My best friend came to visit the Outer Banks last weekend. She has been living in California for the past 40 years and just moved to Greenville, SC for her job. She had not been to the Outer Banks since the last time she visited me, five years ago. So, we talked, we shopped and we ate.

Jockey's Ridge

Almost everyone who visits the Outer Banks knows a little about Jockey's Ridge and many have climbed it or gone hang-gliding. There is a lot more to Jockey's Ridge than sand...a lot of sand yes but, there are hiking trails, a boardwalk and a soundside access where you will find shallow, calm water. This is where a lot of windsurfers go. There are self-guided hiking trails too.

About our beaches

 Which beach on the Outer Banks is just right for you?  Do you want a beach with walkways to the ocean and public restrooms...or do you want some place a little more rustic or closer to nature?  Lots of choices...so here we go...

A couple of things that apply to all our beaches. 

Slow Down...you move too fast...you've got to make your vacation last

Wow...it is already June. The season is here...and so are the  people. For that, we are very grateful. Summers tend to pass by in a blur for us...we stay very busy. Thankfully, it is a labor of love and it is always nice to see guests come back to the inn.

Not So Well Known Places on the OBX

You may want to check out these places and attractions on the Outer Banks. We have a lot more than our beautiful beaches to offer. If I had my wish, everyone would be able to spend two consecutive weeks here on vacation. At least. The first week you relax, rest, restore. Go the the beach, out to eat, spend time with family and just take it easy.

Spring is here...what's new and what you need to know

Outstanding weather, blue skies, calm ocean and almost every business is open back up for the 2015 season. There are quite a few events coming up that you may want to go to...music, art, open houses, an earth fair and more. 

And, lots of marathons, if you are the running type.
