We’ve all become experts at staying home during the pandemic. Although travel is limited, Sanderling you can still get out and have some amazing experiences without stepping foot in an airport.
This week’s’ Road Trippin’ in the 757 takes us to Currituck County, just a stone’s throw away from Hampton Roads, to check out the sites.
Even in chilly weather, there is little that compares to watching a beautiful sunrise or sunset as you walk along the beach. Or even better, enjoying that same view from the comfort of your own room.
The Sanderling Resort in the Outer Banks provides the perfect luxury getaway whether you’re looking for a romantic weekend, of some quality family time. And with their extensive sanitizing between stays, the Sanderling takes all the worry away from your special trip.
From a ship, this historic lighthouse can be seen at a distance of 18 nautical miles, but you can see it up close when you take a quick road trip to Corolla, in Currituck county.
Built in 1875, this majestic lighthouse still serves as a navigational aid as it lights up at dusk and flashes at 20 second intervals.
A self-guided tour will lead you up the 220 steps to a beautiful view, and since you control your pace, you can maintain social distance and keep yourselves safe while taking in the history of the lighthouse. Don’t forget your masks!
If horses are your thing, then Corolla is an absolute must.
Descendants of the Spanish Mustangs brought to the Outer Banks by early explorers, wild horses roam freely in Corolla. They are mainly found in the four-wheel drive areas of the beach, so while wild horse tours are available, you can always hop in your 4 –wheeler, or rent one, and go check them out on your own.
It is important to note though, that you will have to appreciate them from a distance, as it is illegal to intentionally get within 50 of them. But near or far, their beauty is breathtaking, and well worth a visit.
With all of these great, safe options, and so many more, just a couple hours’ drive from the 757, it is easy to see why Currituck County in North Carolina is such a great place to go Road Trippin’.
