OBX Taste of the Beach 2016

This will be our fourth year staying on the Outer Banks and attending the OBX Taste of the Beach.  I’m so happy that I discovered this great four-day event back in 2013.  This event is in its 7th year.  Take a look at the posted events.  Never will you get such a wide and varied opportunity to experience the culinary and libation offerings of the Northern Outer Banks like you will during this four-day event.  No grocery shopping or cooking is involved during this getaway.  There are so many unique events and experiences specifically created by local restaurants, breweries, and wineries to showcase their best and most popular offerings.

We have our accommodations nailed down for that week.  We’ll be staying at the new Beachwoods Resort with upgraded, state-of-the-art amenities geared to the four-season vacationer.  We are looking forward to our first stay at this premier resort since the completion of the Indoor Water Park, Lakeside Lodge and Fitness Center.

Now for the really hard part; narrowing down the events to attend.   It’s really tough.  But it must be done…..and it should be done rather quickly now that all the events have been posted.  Some events have limited tickets and many well sell out very quickly.

I just finished going through the offerings.  I’m thrilled with the change to the Grand Tasting, which is held on the last day of the event.  This will be our first year being able to attend this event, which has been moved up in the day to start at 1:00 pm and end at 4:00 pm, allowing time for travel back home.

If you love visiting the Outer Banks and enjoy unique and fun culinary experiences, consider placing this fun event on your list of potential getaways.  Rates on lodging are at a discount during March, which provides the opportunity to put your vacation dollars towards some of these exciting events…..and avoid grocery shopping and cooking.  Now that’s a vacation!
