A treasure trove of experiences

Located in North Carolina’s Southern Outer Banks, the Crystal Coast is an inviting, family-friendly destination. It’s where sea, sun, and sand meet, and it’s the perfect place for your next reunion. At Cape Lookout National Seashore, you can enjoy fishing, swimming, birding, boating, windsurfing, and kayaking. Explore the second most visited state park in North Carolina, the Fort Macon State Park, where the Battle of Macon was fought in 1862. Your group can even go swimming in a protected area and explore on nature walks.

Families with little ones will be thrilled to see the variety of aquatic flora and fauna at North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. With an impressive 306,000-gallon ocean habitat teeming with many different species of fish, sharks, and turtles, the aquarium also has a replica of the U-352 German submarine that was sunk off the North Carolina coast. Visit the Harkers Island Visitors Center with interactive displays and exhibits centered around island ecology and take a ferry to Shackleford Banks and see wild horses roaming freely.

Not to be missed is Beaufort, also known as “America’s Favorite Town,” with its lively waterfront. Take a cruise down the waterways, pick up treasures at the local community market and take a double-decker bus tour of the historic district to see the Carteret County Jail built in 1829 and the Apothecary Shop and Doctor’s Office dating back to 1857.

A Proven Destination for Reunions

“With so many things to do and see at North Carolina’s Crystal Coast, there’s something for your whole family or group to enjoy!”

Crystal Coast is the perfect beach destination with plenty to see, do and eat

Comprising communities like Atlantic Beach, Beaufort, Morehead City, Cape Lookout, Pine Knoll Shores, and Harkers Island, the Crystal Coast is the hub of activity all throughout the year with sporting events, seasonal festivals, concerts, and shows.

When it’s time to eat, you might have a hard time choosing from the wide variety of culinary delights the Crystal Coast has to offer. You don’t have to cast your net far to find fresh seafood prepared any way you like it. Local eateries such as Snapperz Grill & Steam Bar in Morehead City and Emerald Isle, Caribsea in Emerald Isle, and Bahia Beach House & Surf Bar in Atlantic Beach all offer up their own takes on our favorite food group. For dock-to-dish delights made with fresh seasonal ingredients, including hand-crafted sushi, don’t miss Amos Mosquito’s in Atlantic Beach. And at Black Sheep in Beaufort, you’ll enjoy an elevated take on the most classic of dishes: pizza. Grown-ups can sip on refreshing cocktails at most restaurants, or they can enjoy craft brews at Crystal Coast Brewing Company.

Reunion groups of all sizes have a variety of accommodation options to choose from, including oceanfront hotels and condos, boutique bed & breakfasts, camping and RV parks, and beachfront cottages.

We look forward to hosting your reunion event at the Crystal Coast!
