Enjoy an Endless Summer on the Crystal Coast

It doesn't seem possible that Labor Day 2012 will soon be here. Another summer is quickly flying by us.

By now, we hope you've taken some time out of your busy life to spend some down-time with us here on the beautiful coast of North Carolina.

If you have, we are happy to hear it and welcome you back anytime. If you haven't, don't despair. We have a little secret to share.
Most people tend to think that beach vacations are best had during the summer months. While we love summer here on the coast, it is not the only time you can enjoy our pristine beaches and iridescent waters. In fact, the approaching autumn months offer just as much natural beauty, fun in the sun, and rest and relaxation as the summer months do... maybe even more?
How is that possible, you may wonder. Well, there are several reasons for it.
  •  Ideal beach conditions. The temperatures stay moderate and the humidity drops as summer wraps up and autumn ensues. With the drop in humidity, the haze that often lingers on the beach is diminished and the vibrancy of the sky, the waters, the sunrises and sunsets, and the coastal greenery fully emerge. The Crystal Coast is situated near the confluence of Atlantic and Gulf Stream waters which gives it a nice temperance. The rainiest months are usually July and August when afternoon thunderstorms and cooling rain showers are more common. September, October, and November have minimal rainfall with the exception of tropical storms that may blow through the area on occasion every few years. The wind changes from blowing south off the ocean in the summer months to blowing from the north during the autumn months which allows for calmer beach surroundings.
  • Less crowds. Not that the beaches of the Crystal Coast are that crowded to begin with, but the autumn season is even less crowded than during the summer months. Enjoy a nice long walk on the beach and your only encounters may be with the seagulls, pelicans, dolphins, crabs, sand dollars, and starfish. (It's also an ideal time to fantasize about it being your own private beach, by the way. That's what we do, sometimes...)
  • Great day trips. Explore the nearby waterfront towns of Beaufort, Morehead City, and Swansboro. Take an afternoon to visit the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. Enjoy the coastal drive along Bogue Banks from Emerald Isle to Fort Macon and experience the Civil War fort for yourself. Hop a ferry to Cape Lookout National Seashore. The weather will be picture-perfect, and you'll have less people to maneuver around during your adventures.
  • Off-season vacation rental rates and specials. Take advantage of the same great selection of accommodations often with the added benefit of discounted prices and special offers during the off-season months. From luxurious properties to beach and soundside condos, you'll find just the right place with just the right amenities.
So, we guess our secret is out. You can enjoy an endless summer by vacationing with us here on the Crystal Coast in the autumn months, and still enjoy all of the coastal pleasures that this area has to offer. We hope you take us up on it and check us out during the upcoming months, as we soon will be transitioning into autumn.

Have you vacationed here during the months of September, October, or November? What did you think? Tell us about your endless summer. We'd love to hear about it!
