The beauty of the new year is the realization that the next 12 months of your life stretch out before you like a blank slate. When you wake up on January 1st you know that anything can happen and if you start out the new year the right way, every month that follows will be your favorite! The best way to ensure that 2023 is your year is with an Outer Banks New Years trip to the tranquil Hatteras Island of North Carolina and a stay in one of our Midgett Realty island escapes; if you don’t believe us, take a few minutes to explore the wonders of our island home and learn all about the beauty of our holiday hideaways! This guide to starting the new year off the right way will help you make plans for the trip of your lifetime!
The last few years have been interesting, to say the least, and many of us are quite ready to bid adieu to 2022! If your visit begins with New Year’s Eve, it will be easy to find the best ways to do just that! Maybe you will choose to start the night’s festivities with a seafood dinner at Diamond Shoals restaurant, located within sight of one of our Hatteras Islands’ most recognized landmarks, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Offering a casual vibe that is simply beachy and fresh and delicious seafood that somehow just tastes so much better when enjoyed on an island, your first resolution of the new year, eating healthier, will be easier to accomplish when you eat at Diamond Shoals! After a hearty meal, heading back to the comforts of your Midgett Realty seasonal sanctuary will bring more fun adventures allowing you to sip champagne on balconies that overlook the sea and relax in your most comfortable pajamas. Our beachfront homes make moonlit walks on the beach an easy thing to do and as you walk hand in hand with your favorite traveling partner, you will know that choosing to spend your Outer Banks New Year’s on Hatteras was the best decision you could have made!
So now that it is time to open the first page of your new calendar, the early days of 2023 will set the standard for the rest of the year, but we should warn you; there might be a letdown when you have to return home! Life on Hatteras never fails to impress and although there isn’t a whole lot of acreage, there is definitely a plethora of activities that will help you start out the new year the right way! Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, for example, is the tallest brick lighthouse in the world and has a long and rich history that makes it even more fascinating when you visit! Currently closed for climbing but expected to reopen sometime in 2023, family pictures taken with its black and white painted structure in the background will be conversation pieces for years to come! The winter months aren’t quite warm enough for swimming in the sea that surrounds us, but the temperatures are sure to be a lot higher than the ones in your northern hometown, ensuring that evening walks on the beach will be comfortable, inviting, and spectacular as you take a few minutes of every day to watch the sunset. The fiery colors in the sky, the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach, and the company of your favorite traveling partner will make these moments stand out in your memories for years to come! And when you find yourself wanting to take a walk on the wild side, the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge will give you all the wild you can handle! Offering over 370 species of birds, bird watchers from all over the country find their way to this special refuge every year, and a visit in the new year will bring you happy memories that will help every month in 2023 shine bright!
