Reasons to Vacation on Bald Head Island

Bald Head Island in North Carolina
It is that time of the year again. Time to pack the swimwear in the suitcase, load the children in the family car, and hit the open road to anywhere else where your name is not on the side of the mailbox. Summertime is the perfect time to book a vacation (or two) requiring a road trip away from home.

If you are looking for a wonderful vacation spot, you really can not go wrong booking North Carolina beach houses for rent. North Carolina is well-known for its beach house rentals, especially in the Outer Banks region of the state. If, however, you are looking for a more secluded hideaway nestled on a barrier island which is off the beaten path of the busiest tourism corridor, consider heading to Bald Head Island.

Ditch the Automobile

In order to preserve the natural environment and the quiet sanctuary of this treasured island, automobiles are not permitted on Bald Head Island. Rather, visitors leave their vehicles on the mainland and then traverse to the island by passenger ferry or private boat. Once on the island, you make your way around by either golf cart or bicycle. It is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful summertime weather while simultaneously experiencing the quiet and tranquility of an island village devoid of automobile traffic.

The secret is out. Bald Head Island is an island vacation destination lacking in mass commercialism, but absolutely rife with charm and history.
