How To Vacation Like a Straight Boss
On occasion, we get questions on exactly how to do an Outer Banks vacation. When we do get those kinds of questions, it’s fun to think about all of the options and choices guests can find in order to achieve the ultimate Outer Banks Vacation.
Step by step, here’s how we’ve seen a few folks hit the Outer Banks like a boss:
Fly to OBX
Skip the traffic and fly into the Outer Banks from your hometown via Ultimate Air Shuttle. About a week prior to your arrival, contact us for links to grocery delivery and executive ground transportation options. Arrive with no hassle at all, and professional ground transport will be there waiting for you.
Have Your Beach Gear Set Up For You
Hire a cabana service to set your stuff up on the beach every day. OBX Beach Cabana Services rents high-quality beach gear, and the best part is they set everything up in the morning and take it all down in the evening. No lugging stuff to the beach or fussing with setting up a beach tent or umbrella. Walk to the sand, sit down, relax for the day. Simply walk off the beach with your beach bag and loved ones. Repeat. Beach chair and umbrella or tent packages are available. Delivery and pickup are included, so you don’t have to lug beach equipment anywhere during your vacation.
Book a Boat for a Day
Book a private clamming trip down to Oregon Inlet! A boat can pull right up on the ocean sandbar, and the family can jump over the side into waist-deep warm water. Here, you and your family can find keeper clams with their feet–think the Bahamas. This one is a home run with the kids! With the right cooler packing, via the Fresh Market in Nags Head, it is a home run for the adults as well. We can help find the right boat and captain. Keep the clams, and ride home in style via your transporter. You can also plan ahead to use the Kitchen Witch in-home catering to make fresh-caught clams casino for dinner that evening.
Get a Cabana at H2OBX Waterpark
Take the family to H2OBX Waterpark. Make plans ahead of time to book a staffed-and-serviced private cabana and it will be a fantastic afternoon. A trip to the waterpark could easily be the highlight of your kids’ Outer Banks vacation. Be sure to buy your discounted tickets in advance through Twiddy to breeze right through the gates and start splashing right away.
Day Trip to Pick Peaches
Schedule a family trip to go peach picking via boat from Corolla through Coastal Explorations. The trip to Knotts Island takes about 45 minutes. Here, you step from the boat directly into a delicious (and we mean delicious) peach orchard. From the boat on the way over, call Bluewater Seafood for a fresh tuna delivery upon your return. Hand fresh peaches and fresh tuna, again, to the Kitchen Witch for a meal that you’ll never forget.
Let us handle a golf reservation at either the public Currituck Club in Corolla or the semi-private Duck Woods County Club in Southern Shores. With some advance notice, we can also arrange for food and drinks upon your arrival, departure, and just after the 9th tee.
Bring the Entertainment to Your Vacation Home
Although local music is pretty cool, sometimes local bars can get crowded. We’ve seen some guests book bands and bartenders poolside, and ask for 10-15 simple songs around happy hour. That way, you’ve got the entertainment and the beverages without the drive or the crowd!
Vacationing like a boss on the OBX starts with a straight baller vacation home. Homes with all of the bells and whistles normally book a year or more in advance. Now is the time to plan an epic 2020 Outer Banks vacation in a top-notch vacation home!
