We had a free week and on the spur of the moment decided to head to a new destination for us, the North Carolina Outer Banks. We had no idea what to expect and nowhere to stay, so I was searching vrbos along the way to find us place to stay. We wanted to be on the southern part of the Outer Banks near Hatteras as we did want to go fishing, so settled on Frisco. When we stopped off for lunch at Black Mountain outside of Asheville we stumbled across a nice vacation rental that had just posted a special for the week. We called and the owner nicely directed us to his property management company, Midgett Realty Company. We secured “Carolina Treasure” for the week and couldn’t wait to arrive.
We stopped off overnight to break up the 13-hour drive and arrived on Hatteras about lunch time to see if our rental was ready yet. Midgett Realty is a beehive of activity and looks like they manage many of the properties in that area, so if you’re looking for a vacation rental, check out their website for the easiest rental search. They needed a few more hours so we drove on down to the bottom of Hatteras where the ferry goes to Okracoke to check it all out. We were starved and the Billfish Bar and Grill at a marina was handy, so went in for lunch.
Kites are big on the Outer Banks and you can pick them up at any of the Kitty Hawk Kite store locations. I got a parrot later in the week. Families spend the day on this lovely beach, swimming, surfing, flying kites, playing games and relaxing. It was never crowded and we really enjoyed it.
Stay tuned for more of our Outer Banks excursions…
