During these unprecedented times, the holidays are a time to be thankful, spend time with family and friends, create new memories and reminisce about years past. With the holidays just around the corner, many are wondering if it’s safe to travel, and if so, what precautions should be taken. This helpful guide will help you plan your Emerald Isle holiday getaway or winter escape with ease and peace of mind.
Traveling Safely During the Holiday Season
Avoid the hustle and bustle that comes with airports and flight delays. It’s time to load up the car, hit the road, and to head to the Crystal Coast! No matter where you call home, driving to Emerald Isle is a breeze. Plus, a road trip to the Carolina coast is a great way to see the beauty of area landmarks and landscapes along the way! Pack your favorite holiday treats to make your drive even more enjoyable.
Once you’ve arrived, enjoy our spacious beaches, which allow plenty of space to social distance, or as we like to call it – coastal distance. There’s plenty of room for a traditional post-Thanksgiving meal family football game along the sands. Or bundle up for an evening stroll with a warm cup of hot chocolate as you take in the glowing sunsets over the shoreline. The coastal memories you make will last a lifetime and you’ll want to relive them for future holiday seasons to come.
