Corolla Family Vacation in the Outer Banks

Here’s a great picture submitted to us by Gary Szczensny of Tonawanda, New York. Mr. Szczensny and his clan have vacationed with Outer Banks Blue several times over the years, most recently they stayed with us in Corolla at the property “House on The Hill” in early June.
 On a beautiful August Monday morning we thought this picture was a great memory to share with our readers and remind us all of what the beach is all about – friends, family and fun! Thank you Gary for such a great picture.
 Don’t forget to send along your best vacation memory pictures to be placed on our blog each Monday. Once per month we draw a random winner of a $100 gift certificate good towards a future stay with Outer Banks Blue! All the best from the beach! READ MORE
