People who want to get away from the icy cold winter often head off to Hawai'i, the Carribbean, or Florida. Here in Florida, we call our winter residents the "snowbirds".
When we talk about sand, beach and surf, we think about Hawai'i . And when we talk about birds, fishing, wind, sand and water, Florida comes to mind. However, sand, water, beach, birds and fishing may also refer to that great vacation place called the Outer Banks - an affordable vacation getaway in North Carolina.
For those planning their winter Outer Banks vacations, activities may include touring historic sites, art galleries, museums, or hanging out on the beach for surf fishing or simply to enjoy the beauty of the place.
