When it comes to reunions, nothing compares to an Emerald Isle family get together. Whether it’s the awesome vacation rentals, the gorgeous beaches or the just the casual, coastal atmosphere, Emerald Isle and the Crystal Coast have what it takes to make your family vacation unforgettable.
Here are some steps to help you organize the best family reunion in Emerald Isle.
Assign Tasks: Assign family members specific tasks to alleviate the burden of one person having to do all the work. It’s important to set a timeline and reminders. Some tasks include activity planning, dining and most importantly lodging.
Activity Planning: Have your task member outline a variety of activities and find out who will participate. Most importantly, assign a due date for each task member to sure up plans. Be patient, as this process will more than likely require more time than you considered, so assign tasks a few months out.
Here are a few ideas while in the Emerald Isle area. Emerald Isle is a treasure trove of activities that you and your family can enjoy. The beach is the perfect destination for you and your family to relax and take in the views, while at the same time enjoying the waters of the Crystal Coast. If you’ve got adventure seekers in the family, no problem, Emerald Isle offers some great activities from kayaking to surfing to paddle boarding, and we’ve got great fishing in the area too!
If you’re looking for something slower paced, Emerald Isle is an amazing host of museums and exhibits including the North Carolina Aquarium and Fort Macon State Park. Be sure to ask about group discounts and tours in advance of your visit! Also there are many new attractions for the whole family to enjoy along the Crystal Coast.
Food: It’s important to determine, at least loosely, a dining agenda. Will you cook or dine out for meals? Will the entire family eat every meal together or will they separate occasionally? A good majority of our properties have substantial kitchen and dining areas fit to prepare amazing meals; many properties also include outdoor grills. Dining in is a better option for those on a budget. Emerald Isle has Food Lion on Emerald Drive and across the bridge is Lowe’s Food Store on McLean Blvd. However, if you’re more inclined to dining out, Emerald Isle has plenty of mouth-watering restaurants serving up the best in fine dining, the freshest seafood, as well as some great casual family dining. We suggest ChowdaHeads on Emerald Drive, and you’ve got to try their clam chowder!
