The deal: The threadlike barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina are cohesively known as the Outer Banks — a popular vacation destination for many East Coast dwellers looking to sunbathe on sugary-sand beaches and perhaps surf some gnarly waves.
And now through May 22 (before the summer tourist season kicks into high gear), you can sneak in a quick 3-night getaway to the Outer Banks for just $570 (the third night is on the house) at The Sanderling Resort. Besides the initial $285 savings on accommodations, ShermansTravel.com readers will receive an exclusive complimentary room upgrade to the Main Inn (a $90 value), as well as one free breakfast for two (worth $30).
Plus, guests can choose between participating in one of the following activities:
- Tennis lessons (one per person)
- Corolla wild horses guided tour
- Guided kayak tour
- Bicycle rentals for two
About the resort: Positioned on a spit of land between the Currituck Sound and enormous Atlantic Ocean, the full-service Sanderling Resort features deluxe guestrooms, a spa, salon, and fitness center. In addition, the property also contains two restaurants and bars, an indoor swimming pool, and, for you nature lovers, sits adjacent from the 3,400-acre Pine Island Audubon Sanctuary.
The dollars: Rates are based on double occupancy. Taxes and fees are additional.
The catch: The ocean temperature may be a little too chilly to take a dip.
