NAGS HEAD, N.C., May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau announced this week that it has seen some of the best peak season savings available for vacation rental homes, hotels and other lodging types in years, some of which are highlighted on the newly relaunched official site outerbanks.org. "Families and couples shopping for a beach vacation right now can find discounts of hundreds of dollars, free nights and value-added bundles on the OBX under our Offers and Specials page," explains Executive Director Lee Nettles. "We're closing in on what we anticipate to be another great June, July and August, particularly with the opening of the Outer Banks National Scenic Byway and the National Parks centennial celebration featuring the three big parks out here. Browsing some of the incentives that companies are offering to rent homes and rooms to travelers online and our site, I imagine people are going to be clicking up these accommodations once the word gets out."
The Outer Banks of North Carolina has become the home away from home for generations of families across the country, prized for clean and natural beaches preserved for recreation and wildlife. "Customers to the OBX coast are happy to share what they love best on social media, and that has become a big feature of the new outerbanks.org," says Nettles. "We know that destination shoppers check lots of resources before making travel plans these days, and the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau enjoys one of the most vocal and engaged audiences of its kind on the east coast online. We encourage browsers to check out testimonials and photo or video posts about the OBX; just be prepared to become a fan, too." Visitors can stay in modern, luxurious coastal homes that offer a bedroom count from a cozy few to upwards of 16 or more. Across the one hundred miles of island coast, you can also find rustic bungalows, bed and breakfasts, mom and pop motels and campgrounds that welcome tent sites to big RV's.
For those following this year's park service Centennial, there will be special programming at Wright Brothers National Memorial, Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Fort Raleigh National Historic Site to consider adding to your checklist. Jockey's Ridge State Park, one of North Carolina's most popular attractions is also being recognized as part of the state's park centennial. Two more national wildlife refuges at Pea Island and Alligator River add to the Outer Banks' reputation of open spaces and endless elbow room both on the sand and in the water, celebrated in the form of a new trail, the Outer Banks Scenic Byway that travelers will notice signage for along NC12 south of Nags Head, NC and on Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands.
Other reasons to browse outerbanks.org include new restaurants, a year round events calendar and constantly updated listings for all the tourism related businesses on the islands, including multiple-day itineraries, based on interest. "Whether you're a loyal customer or a first-time visitor to the OBX, we think you'll find something fun and new on the site, no matter if you're a mobile only user or a dedicated laptop person. You'll certainly be able to appreciate the deals you're going to find if you've been looking at beaches."
