How to Avoid the Traffic on Your Drive to the Outer Banks – Updated

In 2014, we released this article because summer traffic to the Outer Banks was a topic we knew could use a little insider information on how to avoid this traffic. The article was well received and many people responded with their own tips and tricks. 3 years later avoiding traffic on the drive to the Outer Banks is still a subject that is valuable to our visitors so we decided to update this article with some of the wonderful tips provided by our readers.

Happy Spring!

Let us be one of the first to wish you a happy spring, or better yet a happy end to winter!   While temperatures are still not very spring like in a lot of places, we see signs of warmer weather everywhere.  Daffodils are popping out, golf courses are getting a little bit greener every day, and we are also noticing song birds in the morning for the first time in a while.   Ahhhhh…..spring.

Enjoying the beach!

Happy Monday everyone.  We hope your teams won yesterday and are in the Super Bowl in two weeks.   Lots of Pittsburgh Steeler fans here on the Outer Banks and among our usual guests so we feel for you, but we are very excited for Atlanta Falcons’ fans today who get to cheer for their team in the biggest football game for just the 2nd time in history.

Thanksgiving leftovers

I am sure you are like all of us around the office today and that is trying to figure out how we put on some extra weight over the last few days.    Could have been the last helping of stuffing?   Turkey?  Pumpkin Pie?  Country ham?  Roasted Oysters?   Well, that last one might be unique to the Outer Banks, but we are sure you are feeling stuffed like we are on this first Monday after the holiday, but looking forward to enjoying time with our families again in less than one month for the upcoming holidays!
