Valentine’s Day weekend is a little over a week away and if you’re planning to celebrate with a romantic getaway for two in the Outer Banks, we’ve got a few romantic ideas for you! With your hectic schedule at home, we’re sure that the time you get to spend together one-on-one is few and far between. You deserve this weekend away and we want to help ensure that you truly make the most of it!
So what is there to do for Valentine’s Day in the Outer Banks? Tons! For example, if you’re really trying to go all out and take the romance factor to an all-time high, we would suggest planning an early picnic and then making a reservation to try horseback riding on the beach during the day. It’s something that you read about in romance novels and watch happy couples partake in when watching classic romantic comedies – something that makes women everywhere go, “Aww! I want to do that someday!” Well why can’t someday be Valentine’s Day?
Most people don’t realize that horseback riding on the beach is a year-round activity simply because they figure beach activities are solely for the summer months. Nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, instructors prefer taking the horses out when the temperature isn’t so intense and you’ll benefit from the fact that the beaches won’t be as crowded this time of year. Trust us when we say that this is an experience you both won’t soon forget. There’s plenty of companies in the area that offer this type of service, such as Equine Adventures, so you shouldn’t have to search long before finding one that you like!
Once you’re done, head on over to Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant and Tavern in Nags Head, where the romance will continue with delicious dinner specials, live acoustic music from Mike Mangum, and a free red rose for all ladies.
Allow yourselves the opportunity to reconnect this upcoming Valentine’s Day by putting a bit of effort into bringing those butterfly feelings back. We can’t think of a better place to do that than in the Outer Banks!
