Planning a summer vacation can leave you feeling overwhelmed. 

But we’re here to help with these summer vacation tips to help you plan a fabulous summer getaway.

VactionChecklist1. Stay organised as you go

  • Keep all your research and booking confirmations such as accomodation, activities, travel together and easily accessible.
  • Book as much as you can early. Not only are you likely able to save money, it means you can just show up and and enjoy.

2. Next, the details

Once you know when you plan to travel, and with whom, you will naturally end up with a shortlist of options for the “where.”

  • What you each need to get out of the vacation?
  • What do you want to spend your time and money doing?

Do some research, and take the time to go through reviews. Consider the activities that are going to help you get the most out of your summer vacation. 

3. Know yourself & your vacation limits

There is no point planning things that won’t be enjoyed. So think…

  • Do you enjoy trying new things?
  • How much travelling for day trips do you want to do?
  • How much do you want to spend each day?
  • Do you want to engage in a lot of activities, or would you rather rest, read and just chill out?

Be open and honest, allow for some give and take with whomever is going.

4. Be clever

Think about how to avoid the crowds.

  • Activities in the morning instead of at night?  
  • Early breakfasts with sunrise instead of dinners at sunset.
  • If possible, plan your vacation outside of peak season. Not only will it mean less crowds, there’s the added bonus of cheaper rates!

5. You’re not at home

Let that soak in…

Allow yourself to enjoy just being on vacation, slow down, breathe and take it all in.

6. Finish on a high note

Save something special to look forward to at the end of the vacation. It really helps avoid the ‘end of vacation’ blues! How your vacation ends goes home with you.

Going green
Apr07

The Inn on Bath Creek has recently been awarded a Certificate of Recognition for our commitment to “Going Green”. The certificate was awarded by the NC Department Environment and Natural Resources.

The NC Green Travel award is designed to encourage the tourism industry to “Go Green”. It recognizes businesses that recycle material, excel in water efficiency, practice energy conservation, and therefore strive to practice green standards in all aspects of their housekeeping practices.

In the travel industry today, more and more visitors actively seek out properties that are committed to green initiatives. Eco-tourism is a growing phenomenon that we applaud. We believe that our environment deserves to be protected, and are delighted to be recognized for our efforts.

Some of the benefits of ‘Going Green’ eco-tourism include:

  • Increased environmental awareness.
  • Improving the local economy by supporting sustainable, local growth.
  • Natural resource management.
  • Improved understanding of local ecosystems, geology and biology.

The Inn on Bath Creek is the only B&B in Beaufort County with this recognition. Most importantly, we hope to lead the way in encouraging other business to go green.
