We've been vacationing on the Outer Banks for nearly twenty year. Recently, we've decided to make it our annal Easter Vacation with our children and grandchildren. Since most of our kids are scattered along the east coast, Smooth Landings (SL) is not only the perfect place to vacation--It's our Favorite!
After our lengthy trip from Upstate New York, the convenience of the elevator is a welcome treat to lug our belongings up to the middle and top floors. For us, rather than have a vigerous itinerary, we enjoy all that Smooth Landings has to offer. The beach is incredible during the day, but relaxing in the hot tub in the evening (with a glass of wine) is a true pleasure! We play frequent games of pool, have puzzle tournaments, and watch movies. For Easter, the grandchildren plant jelly beans the night before Easter Sunday and in the morning they're overjoyed to see that lolly pops have grown where they planted their jelly beans--Priceless!
However, if your looking for attractions, Smooth Landings is centrally located with Putt Putt Golf, Litl Caesars and our favorite--Cold Stone Ice Cream, all within walking distance! If you love to cook at home SL's comes equipped with a grill. ...or if your not in the mood to cook, there are many awesome restaurants near by. Some of our faves are Jolly Rogers, Dirty Dicks and Moes. Other cool attractions are Jockey's Ridge, Wright Brothers and for the first time, we actually went to see the Grave Digger Monster Trucks--pretty cool! Grand kids loved it!
We look forward to this trip every year and hope to enjoy this perfect oasis for many years to come!
Oh...and for some newly added fun, don't forget to hide Billie the Crab!
