The Outer Banks has become one of the top destinations on the east coast for a vacation.
Especially over the past few years, with COVID impacting vacations, visitorship has exploded because a family could stay relatively isolated, traveling between the beach and a vacation home.
But, did you know that more and more people are choosing to stay in Edenton for their beach vacation?
Today, I’ll tell you why.
Escaping the crowds
The Outer Banks is fantastic, but especially during peak season, if you want to avoid waiting for an hour for a seat in a restaurant or need to get away from overwhelming crowds, you’ll want to stay somewhere else. Edenton is the perfect place. When people stay in Edenton, they miss the crowds, traffic, and congestion that create hassles for many OBX travelers.
A place to escape during bad weather
When it’s hot and sunny, a beach vacation is a perfect way to spend your time. But what happens when the clouds roll in, bringing lightning and rain? Do you want to spend the day in a hotel room or museum? Edenton is perfect for a rainy vacation day, allowing you to explore new places and enjoy yourself no matter the weather.
Better and Cheaper Accommodations
There are a million hotel rooms near the OBX. Some are right on the water. Others are a short walk from the beach. But, during peak season, you’ll pay an arm and a leg for something small. Whether you choose the Hampton Inn or one of our Bed and Breakfast options here in Edenton, you’ll save money and avoid the crowds.
Everyone loves to pick up an interesting souvenir or two to commemorate their vacation. Edenton has an abundance of fun, interesting, and surprising shopping options. Fine art, jewelry, hand-crafted goods, mugs, shirts, and more.
Above all, your beach vacation should be about one thing: relaxation. You want to take a temporary break from the stresses of life, stretching out, laying your head back, and simply existing for a few days. I don’t know about you, but it’s hard to do that when you have honking horns, crowds, and chaos just feet from your door.
A Beach vacation…with options.
When you vacation in Edenton, you can spend time on the beach. But, you also get to avoid crowds, overpriced accommodations, and all the headaches that come with staying in an over-crowded tourist destination.
I’d love for you to see why more people choose to stay in Edenton for their beach vacation!
