Spend Thanksgiving on the Outer Banks

Why Yes, You Should Spend Thanksgiving on the Outer Banks Thanksgiving marks the official start of the holiday season. Soon, Christmas music will blare from our radios, and Black Friday shoppers will flock to the outlet malls, but first there must be turkey. It has long been a family tradition: an early dinner at Grandma’s, followed by dessert and touch football in the backyard, but now is as good a time as any to start a brand new tradition. Gather the family (and the gobblers, too) for a week of rest and relaxation at the beach.

Labor Day at the Beach

2014 Labor Day Weekend Events in the Outer Banks Labor Day is the last hurrah of summer for many families. One long last weekend together before all the kids are back in school and the household settles into a workaday routine. While the water is still warm and the beaches are more spacious... Why not make that last sweet weekend of summer an occasion to remember? The Outer Banks of North Carolina may only be a small island of land. Just a string of small barrier islands at the edge of the Atlantic, these tiny islands are full of things to do on a long Labor Day Weekend.
