The Top 3 Reasons to Plan Your Emerald Isle Vacation in May

We hope to see you here on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina this year. Our sandy shores, undulating tides, and sea-salt air beckon you to come and relax with us for awhile. 

With the ushering in of May (yes, it's May), Memorial Day is right around the corner. Traditionally, that's the "official" start of the season here on the beach. However, each year as the popularity of this area of the Southern Outer Banks increases, the off-season decreases. Our visitors have realized that summer is not the only time to visit and vacation with us here on the coast!

With that being said, it's not too early to book your summer beach getawaybut keep in mind that it's also not too late to book your May beach getaway. Why wait until summer? We have some fabulous vacation rental discounts this time of year, so be sure to check those out.

Have we convinced you yet? Just to peak your interest a bit further, we've included our  Top 3 Reasons to Plan Your Emerald Isle Vacation in May. We know you want to soak up some rays and allow for some serious beach time, but here are a few additional things you may want to plan around or pencil in to your itinerary this month.

Reason #1: The MCAS Cherry Point Air Show. During the first weekend in May, the 2012 Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point Air Show begins on Friday evening, May 4, and continues through Sunday, May 6. Cherry Point is located in Havelock and is about 30 miles from Emerald Isle. It is the home of the largest military  air show in North Carolina. The MCAS Air Show offers free admission and free parking! It's a chance to experience aviation at its best with the highlight being a demonstration by the United States Naval Flight Demonstration Team, the Blue Angels. In addition to the incredible sights, this year's show offers a free concert on Saturday featuring Darryl Worley, Bill Gentry, and David Kroll.

Reason #2: Mother's Day. Mother's Day is quickly approaching and May 13 will be here before you know it. Time with family seems incredibly limited these days so make it an extra special celebration by gathering up the entire family and spending it here in Emerald Isle. Why not plan to bring the extended family, too? Sun-Surf Realty has spacious accommodations in ideal locations for special events such as these.

Reason #3: Memorial Day. Primarily a day to remember those who have died in service to our nation, Memorial Day is observed on May 28 this year. As mentioned earlier in this blog, the military has a strong presence in the area with Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville. Why not tie in some historical and modern day meaning along with the traditional Memorial Day gatherings, picnics, and time with family? It's also an opportune time for a long weekend getaway during the holiday (or better yet, extend it a week or two if you have the time) in a relaxing coastal setting. You can find all of these things right here.

Well, we've made our case for some of the top reasons you should consider a vacation here this month. Of course there are so many more reasons to be here in May, but we just don't have time to list them all. (Stay tuned for more information in future blog posts.)

In the meantime, we we want to hear from you! If you've vacationed in Emerald Isle, tell us about your top reason(s) for choosing it as a vacation destination in our comment section. Share the love!
