HATTERAS, N.C., July 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau announces historic deals on OBX lodging and overnights this summer on the heels of America's birthday. "We want to give the public a reason to keep celebrating after the Fourth of July fireworks, and giving smart shoppers a little relief from combing the web for the best beach cottage and hotel deals is one way we do it," explains Lee Nettles, Executive Director. "It's time to turn that cell phone into a camera and make some memories. We take pride in having a community that remains as warm and inviting today as when the Wright Brothers came here over a hundred years ago, and the last minute deals right now are about as good as they've been since then." http://bit.ly/OBX-deals
The all-new official website for the Outer Banks of North Carolina gathers the best packages across 100 miles of barrier island towns and villages. Visitors to outerbanks.org will find three pages of special offers from companies such as Beach Realty and Outer Beaches Realty offering 50% discounts on select properties and weeks, and Surf or Sound Realty, Midgett Realty and Village Realty are just a few of the companies offering big specials on select rentals. On this trend, families can save hundreds or thousands of dollars on this summer's vacation homes, cottage courts, hotels and inns.
Fuel costs are still soft compared to last summer, making driving destinations like the Outer Banks as appealing as ever, and leaving more budget for food and fun. "After folks figure out where they're going to set up camp, conversations quickly turn to what favorite restaurant they're going to eat at first. No one leaves hungry, and the caliber of cooking our local chefs put on for guests ranks up there among the best you'll find in any metropolitan center," states Nettles, "and there's no charge for Southern hospitality." Followers of @TheOuterBanksNC on Instagram can do their dining homework on a mobile device, access frequent pics and videos, and take part in the OBX conversation with other visitors.
For moms, dads and couples looking for additional inspiration, the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau has created a new OBX Daydream video series that updates each week, showcasing real experiences you can enjoy as part of your vacation, such as crabbing, kiteboarding and cruising the boardwalk, many of which are off the beaten path. "We love it when families from all over the U.S. come stick their toes in the sand, but we also cater to our virtual visitors who connect with us on social media. To say this place has a special fan following is an understatement, and new subscribers will see that pretty quickly. It is a remarkable time to be looking at the Outer Banks, whether you're in the mood to make plans or just to stay in touch."
