Every parent desires to build memories with their child and what better way to build memories than when you’re on vacation. Going on vacation can get costly especially if you have kids, but fun doesn’t have to be expensive. Here is a list of activities you can do with the kids for little to no cost while you are staying in the Outer Banks.
Last Monday of 2015!
We are sad to see 2015 go, but looking forward to a great 2016, and so on this last Memory Monday of the year we present photo memories from our friend Amy Duchnowski of Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania who stayed with Outer Banks Blue in the vacation rental property “A Corolla Corral” in the Monteray Shores area of Corolla.
Happy Birthday Marines!
Last week I happened to be travelling in Florida and was waiting for my plane in Orlando while reading a book. I was startled to hear a gate agent at Southwest airlines yell a “yahoo” and started applauding. Looking up I saw a group of young Marines walking through the concourse in full gear. Her appreciation for their service soon spread like wildfire and within 30 seconds nearly every passenger in the area was on their feet and applauding the service of these young men. It was quite a scene.
Wildlife of the OBXThis week’s Memory Monday Photo Submission comes to us from Kim Deane of Morrisville, North Carolina who stayed with Outer Banks Blue this past summer at the vacation rental property “Here Comes The Sun.” In fact, Kim and her family have stayed at Here Comes The Sun every year since 2010, and have already reserved their week for next year! The photos that Kim sent us reflect the abundance of nature’s beauty of the Corolla area with the Sandpipers, Wild horses, and of course the massive Ocean to Sound fence that keeps the wild horses penned in the area north of Corolla.

Having a Blast On The Outer Banks
This week’s Memory Monday Photo Submission comes to us from a visitor that forgot to give us her name. Sorry we can’t give credit where it is due on the photos this week, but we enjoyed the pictures anyway.
When you think about things for your kids to do on the Outer Banks, beach-related activities probably come to mind first. After all, it’s hard to ignore the vast ocean where you and your children can catch a wave, build a sandcastle, fly a kite and dig for crabs. What you may not realize is that the Outer Banks of NC offers some super-cool kids’ activities not found elsewhere.
