I've been to that beach several times (Grandparents live in Venice). White sand beach with sandbars that create decent sized waves for the Gulf. Very nice...

Absolutely. Already have the stone picked out. I'm working with a jeweler who is also a family friend. I went to his house the other night to look at a bunch of loose diamonds he brought home. I know I've mentioned engagement off and on here for the past year or so, but it's actually happening this time, and soon. I'll keep you posted.

Plus I know how happy it would make my girlfriend to have that ring on her finger when we go down to Florida see her family (forgot to mention the last day of our trip will be spent in Orlando with them) and all of our friends in Gainesville.

It's gorgeous down there. My mom and stepdad own a two bedroom/two bath condo RIGHT on the water. I mean, if the lanai wasn't screened in, you could throw a baseball into the gulf. The place is right on Crescent Beach (a segment of Siesta Key Beach). It's one of best places I've ever been. The Travel Channel said it's one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Needless to say, I'm stoked to get back down there. It's been two years.

As a matter of fact, my girlfriend and I have talked about getting married right there on that beach. We think it would be great to exchange vows with our feet in that white sand during a southwest Florida sunset.

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

Dominican Republic this Wednesday for a week. Never done the Caribbean, looking forward to it and the wildlife.

Trying to go up to Boston in late August, NYC in September as well and will be doing multiple trips to the Outter Banks N.C. per the norm.

Would love to do Lollapalooza in Chicago this year because Ive never done Chicago nor that music fest and the line up is effing off the chain this year, but got a party at a Lake Gaston Va the same weekend.

What vacation plans do you have this Summer?

Going to NYC for Memorial Day weekend. My first trip to New York! I'll let you know the debauchery I get into when I get back.

When you get to Vegas let me know if you want to use my local discount anywhere. Usually cuts the price of shows and stuff in half.

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

So, thinking I may want to take a trip down to NC this summer. But is Nags Head part of Outer Banks, or vice-versa or neither? And if I'm looking for a fairly quiet beach down around there....where should I go?

I think Firstdown is your man for that question. I have been there once; it was a little to quiet for me. My family generally goes to Ocean City/Bethany Beach/ Rehoboth Beach...

Yes, Nags Head is part of OBX and right beside a major tourism spot of Kill Devil Hills. It's going to be quieter than KH or KDH, that much is for sure.

nags head nc - Google Maps


I know some friends that have been to places like Duck, NC and had a great time(if you want quiet). It's more low key than Kitty Hawk or Kill Devil Hills.

duck, nc - Google Maps

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

SS -- I'm a big fan of the Corolla area of the OBX if you want a quiet spot. No beach will be super quiet in the peak of summer. I love beach trips in early September -- kids are back in school but the weather and water are still warm.

If you never been SS, Outer Banks is like 2 long skinny islands without the commercialization of typical vacation beach spots. No boardwalk, no cheezy t-shirt shops, no Snookies. The first island, Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Manteo area, are where you will find the most people, lots of rental houses, spots to eat, shops etc. U also have Duck which is the north point of the island...a little more private but your gonna be surrounded by Duke grads, now doctors, and their vacation homes. Im personally not a fan. Ive heard farther up in Corrella its better, but never been.

If you continue going down the island you will cross over to Hatteras Island which is noticably more private, skinny island with miles of beach where you can just turn off the road and find no one around. At the bottom of that island is Cape Hatteras, Buxton, and Frisco, which is great but the misquitoes this year down there are gonna be brutal. Heard that from a source last weekend. Off Hatteras is a little island call Ocracoke Island (or as dad mispronauces "Oreocake")which you have to ferry to, but is amazing. It is a must day visit just to walk the small bay and chill. So is the Hatteras area in general, just a cool area.

Im gonna direct you to Avon NC. Middle of Hatteras Island with a good number of options of food, rental houses and small number of shops and not overly crowded. Its a good balance and very private.

If your still looking for more private, Rodanthe is where my parents have there spot, but its no stop lights and you can drive through it in about 2 mins. Less people, less options, no grocery store and less things to do other than the beach which I wouldnt suggest if your first time or even 2nd time down.

So id look at Avon or very southern Nags Head (city).
