Long weekends can often be a great escape from the repetitive grind of the workplace and can allow couples to reconnect if even for just a few days. The Nags Head area located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina is a beautiful and serene area situated along the Atlantic coast that screams weekend getaway.
Sand Dunes and History
Nags Head is a location few know as the location of the first flight. The Wright brothers used the large sand dunes of Nags Head to launch their first flying devices and there is a museum within Nags Head that pays tribute to the brothers and their feat. These sand dunes not only played a large role in American history, they also add to the aesthetic beauty of Nags Head. Many of the Nags Head oceanfront hotels are situated directly behind the sand dunes and although they obstruct the view of the ocean if the tenants find themselves on the first floor, there are very few other spectacles that rival the view of sea oats blowing in the sea breeze.
Blue Ocean Front Views
The beach is the main attractor in Nags Head. With deep blue water and white sand beaches, it is hard to find another place available for a long weekend with beauty like this. Many of the Nags Head oceanfront hotels offer walk out access to the beach while also providing pool access for those looking to clean off the salt water or just hang poolside to avoid the sand. Nags Head hotel suites are available in nearly all of the oceanfront properties and provide an intimate getaway for couples as Nags Head is often a destination for honeymooners as well.
Night Life Attractions
After a long day at the beach or poolside at one of the Nags Head hotel suites, the night life in Nags Head is second to none. Whether it is the five star restaurants that riddle Croatan Highway or the numerous tourist attractions, there is always something to do at night while staying in Nags Head.
The Nags Head area is a beautiful area that provides a number of activities for those looking for a weekend escape. The beach is only steps away, while the nightlife and history is available for those looking for a day away from the beach or night out. Nags Head provides the perfect destination for a weekend escape from the daily doldrums by providing opportunity for play.
