The Holiday season is all about tradition. Trimming the tree with friends and family, baking cookies for Santa, and bonding around the fire are all holiday staples. However, routines are meant to be changed! This season, start a new tradition and spend your holiday on the Outer Banks.

Outer Banks Holiday Activities

There’s a different vibe on the Outer Banks when Christmas rolls around. The air is cooler, the beaches are empty, and holiday magic is in the air. Start a new tradition with seasonal sights on the Outer Banks! Events like Winter Lights at the Elizabethan Gardens and even the Poulos Christmas House are the perfect way to get into the Holiday spirit with your family.

With such mild winters we have on the Outer Banks, bonfire season is at its peak during December! Get the family together and some smores and hot chocolate and have a beachside bonfire. Just be sure you follow all the rules and get the proper permits ahead of time.

Renting A Home For The Holidays

Another reason to start a new tradition for the holidays? Vacation rental homes are significantly cheaper during the winter and holiday months than during the summer! Meaning if you vacation during the off season and for Christmas or New Years, you save some major mula. You have the ability to get a more lavish home in the winter than you would in the summer at a fraction of the price!

Christmas Day By The Sea

Just imagine it, you wake up on Christmas morning with friends and family. You grab a cup of coffee and get to stroll along the oceanside while watching the sunrise. You head back to the beach house to open gifts and spend time with your loved ones and have a family meal to devour with everyone you love. Christmas spent on the Outer Banks is something different than spending the summer here; but it’s just as fun and even more magical.

Start A New Tradition

The beach tends to bring everyone together. We’re all made of salt water so there’s a connection we all have with the sea. Bring your family to the Banks this holiday and experience a bond with family and friends that you can only have on the Outer Banks. With homes available from lavish and luxurious to charming and affordable, Resort Realty has something to make this new holiday tradition magical for every family!
