Stay & Play on Emerald Isle's Beaches and Plan to Spend a Day (or More!) on the Beaufort Waterfront

Our last blog touched upon some of the top reasons to vacation in North Carolina's Emerald Isle in the month of May. We also mentioned that we'd tell you more in future blog posts, and we like to keep our word, so this is one of them.

Our beaches speak for themselves. They are one of the top reasons to vacation here any time of year. Once you see the sparkling crystal-clear waters, the natural beauty of the pristine beaches, and the unending coastal charm of Bogue Banks—you won't soon forget them. They will keep you coming back for more.

Naturally, most people prefer to stay right on the beach. It is convenient and the views are unforgettable. Throw on your beachwear, grab your sunscreen, umbrella, and beach chair, and walk right on out to the beach. It really doesn't get much better than that. Also remember that during the month of May, there are vacation rental discounts available. Be sure to check those out!

While we love the beaches of the Southern Outer Banks region, we only think it's fair to tell you that the waterfronts and their quaint towns are worth a visit, too. Emerald Isle is conveniently located near several (Swansboro, Morehead City, and Beaufort). We only have time and space to touch on one of these right now, but we'll revisit the others in future blog posts. We promise.

The waterfront town of Beaufort is approximately a half-hour drive from Emerald Isle (maybe a bit more, depending on traffic). It is a scenic coastal drive and the destination is the perfect spot for a day trip. Beaufort is rich with maritime and historical influence and offers things to do year-round such as strolling the waterfront, shopping in its unique storefronts, and dining at some fabulous restaurants. The North Carolina Maritime Museum and Beaufort Historic Site are must-sees. This time of year is ideal for a ferry ride around some of the local islands. You will have the opportunity to see everything from majestic yachts and sailboats to the wild horses on Carrot Island.

Beaufort often has special events occurring in addition to its everyday attractions. If you're here this weekend be sure to stop by one of Beaufort's flagship eventsThe Beaufort Music Festival. Beginning at 5:30p.m. on Friday, May 11, you'll find an artist lineup that's sure to please. Come back on Saturday, May 12 from 12:30p.m. to 10p.m. for another fun-filled day of music and so much more. This festival is highly supportive of the arts and the community. We are proud to boast that it is another free event which is family friendly. So bring yourself, bring the kids, you can even bring the dog (leashed, please), and come on out.

For the active-at-heart, The Beaufort Music Festival is also hosting the 5K Fun Run on Saturday May 12. The event begins at 8a.m. on the Beaufort Waterfront. With same-day registration beginning at 7a.m., you still have the opportunity to participate and support a great educational cause.

As usual we could go and on, but we'll call it a blog. You know we love your input, so please tell us your favorite thing to do when staying with us in Emerald Isle!
