Choose the Outer Banks

When You Choose the Outer Banks, You Choose Peace & Tranquility

Ask any North Carolinian, and they’ll tell you: there is only one true land deserving of the name, ‘Carolina’; only one place with the finest beaches; only one place home to the nicest people; only one place — and that place is North Carolina.

South Carolina, please.

Sure, the Palmetto State has its high points: Hilton Head is great. Charleston is fun. Myrtle Beach is… crowded.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina claims to offer tons of family fun: shopping, amusement parks, water sports, golf. Et cetera. Et cetera. Et cetera. You know what else Myrtle Beach has? TRAFFIC and lots of it. Located just about 60 miles east of I-95, most Myrtle Beach vacationers access the city via US 501.

And wouldn’t you know, roundabout this time of year, as the weather starts to warm, more than 56,000 vehicles cram that little road between Conway and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. (That’s not even to mention the number of beach-bound cars taking alternate routes.)

Just think for a minute: fifty-six thousand cars per day, carrying — let’s say, on average — three per car. Times your five-day vacation. That’s nearly a MILLION people, in addition to the several thousand who live and work there every day.

Isn’t vacation supposed to be about rest, and relaxation?

The Outer Banks are… tranquil.

From Duck to Manteo, all the way to Hatteras, you who choose to vacation in the happiest place on earth — Did you think I meant Disney? —  will find yourself transported to a place that promises to fulfill your vacationing heart’s desire like no other. We’ve got the golf (and the putt-putt, too!), the shopping, the water sports, and most important of all: The beaches.

But do you know what the Outer Banks doesn’t have? The crowds.

Consider Nags Head, and Jennette’s Pier.

Jennette’s Pier: Have you been? You really should go.

This historic landmark (constructed in 1939) is one of the most well known tourist attractions along the Outer Banks, where vacationers go to fish, or hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive great whites that call the middle Atlantic home.

It’s a great place to spend a sunny summer day.

Especially when you consider this: at the height of the 2014 summer season — that is, the month of July — Jennette’s drew just north of 200 thousand visitors. Travel instead to the ever-popular island of Hatteras, and that number rises only to 350 thousand; quite a bit different than the million (per week!) at Myrtle Beach.

The choice is yours: Choose peace & tranquility.

Choose the Outer Banks. Choose Sun Realty.
