Tryon Palace’s Outlander Weekend

outlander weekend Tryon palace

Are you a fan of the Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon? If so, you won’t want to miss Tryon Palace’s upcoming Outlander Weekend, happening November 9th-12th in historic downtown New Bern.

 

In the words of Celtic Force, “Imagine having special access to the Palace where Claire was held by Governor Martin in Colonial America. Visit the kitchen and stables, tour the interior of the Palace, wander the herb and flower gardens on the grounds, have dinner and wine on the South Lawn of this Historic Palace as the sound of bagpipes fill the night air. You will think you have traveled back in time. And that’s just a small portion of what we have planned.”

 

But wait, there’s more! After arriving at the host hotel, Doubletree by Hilton (don’t forget to grab one of their famous cookies) along the historic New Bern waterfront, you’ll enjoy a riverfront reception with your fellow Outlander fans.

 

Your first full day in New Bern will include a trip to the famed Tryon Palace where you’ll enjoy a special Outlander tour, an exciting live video chat with different Outlander personalities, and finally, a pig pickin’ dinner on the veranda.

 

Saturday is all about food and music, just the way it was in Outlander and just the way it still is in historic New Bern, North Carolina. For this Outlander-themed weekend, topics such as cooking, herbs, kilts, clothing and more will be highlighted. Then, it’s back to Tryon Palace for an evening complete with a dinner, taken straight from the Outlander Kitchen: The Official Outlander Cookbook, and wine pairing. But it doesn’t stop there. This unique experience will culminate with live music, costumed characters and a finale you won’t soon forget.

 

While the weekend is Outlander-centric, you’ll have plenty of time to tour the picturesque town of New Bern, the second-oldest European-American colonial town in North Carolina (briefly the state capital), along with the birthplace of Pepsi Cola. Take time to dine at one of their quaint eateries, cool off with a cold soda at the Pepsi Cola store, or wander the waterfront. Don’t forget to take off on a Bear Tracks Hunt and take your photo with one of the many decorated, fiberglass bears erected in 2010 in honor of New Bern’s 300th anniversary.

Why You Shouldn’t Miss these NC Seafood Festivals!

festivals

It’s festival season and while many associate that with Oktoberfest celebrations and an abundance of bratwurst, in coastal North Carolina we kickoff fall with a different kind of delectable treat: seafood. While seafood is always in abundance here, it’s celebrated extensively throughout the month of October. Up and down the coast, people come together to feast on fresh seafood and show the rest of the country who has the finest fishing around.

 

Kicking off seafood festival season on October 6-8, 2017 is the always-anticipated and award-winning North Carolina Seafood Festival in Morehead City.

Cast your vote for the People’s Choice, “Best Local Dish” and see if your favorite restaurant wins! General Admission tickets are $5 and can be purchased here. 

This next seafood festival shines a spotlight on a food people tend to either love (we’re in this category) or hate: oysters! The NC Oyster Festival, taking place since 1980, happens in Ocean Isle Beach on October 21st and 22nd and is sure to be a shucking good time! From shag to country to R&B, festival-goers can dance the days away when they aren’t slurping down oysters or competing in one of the many oyster-themed competitions. Whether you like them raw, steams, broiled, on a cracker, in a soup or straight out of the shell, you won’t want to miss this event! To learn more, click here.

Fishing in the Fall on the North Carolina Coast

fall fishing

There’s no denying that the NC Coast is chockfull of outdoor activities, beautiful beaches and ideal spots to escape the city and take advantage of nature and all the benefits it has on the soul. As the summer chaos subsides, it’s time to step away from lounging at the beach and take advantage of one of the most popular fall activities in North Carolina – fishing! Here’s a look at the many ways everyone, from novice to experienced, can reel one in this fall:

 

Charter Fishing

Charter Fishing in North Carolina is an opportunity to experience some of the finest saltwater fishing the world has to offer. This heart-pumping, adrenaline-racing experience can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. Or, if you’re looking for a guy’s getaway, this is the ideal excursion. Inshore, NC is home to redfish, speckled trout, and flounder. Other frequent catches of the Carolina coast are trophy-sized marlin, sailfish, mahi mahi, mackerel, yellowfin tuna and giant bluefish tuna. Morehead City, aptly-named “A fisherman’s paradise,” is home to a number of charter boats ready to give you a memorable outing along with the world-renowned boats located in the Outer Banks. Book your trip today and you’ll have plenty of fish for the holidays.

Pier Fishing                                                                                                          

One of the most appealing aspects of pier fishing is that it can be enjoyed on a whim, almost anywhere. If you have a rod, some bait, and general knowledge of how to cast a line, you’re good to go. The NC Coast is home to a number of piers located along the Northern, Central and Southern Coasts, which means you can enjoy this family-friendly activity anywhere from the Outer Banks to Atlantic Beach on down to Kure Beach. Tackle or bait shops are found at the base of most piers, or are located close by for convenience. Fishing from piers also offers the ideal view of our famous North Carolina sunsets.  

Surf Fishing

Especially popular in the Outer Banks, but a pastime that can be enjoyed all along the NC coast, is surf fishing. Fall is the optimal time as the ocean and air are cooler, making the days more enjoyable. Some of the best spots on the Outer Banks to cast your line in the surf are Cape Point, Oregon Inlet, and Hatteras Inlet. This type of fishing allows fishermen to enjoy the ocean, relax on the sand and reap the benefits of that saltwater air.

Kayak Fishing

Home to barrier islands, the Intracoastal Waterway, and literally hundreds of creeks, rivers, and inlets, the coastal waters of North Carolina are an ideal kayak fishing destination. Kayaks allow fishermen to maneuver in shallow waters, where larger boats cannot go, often catching reds, flounder, and trout up and down the coast. Not to mention, kayakers will witness some of nature’s most secluded and picturesque land.

 

Whether you prefer a day offshore or the comfort of your own kayak, there is a fishing adventure to be had for you on the NC Coast this fall. Explore more of what the NC Coast has to offer and start planning your excursion today! Start planning your coastal North Carolina fishing vacation today. But first, be sure to secure that fishing license! Tight lights!

Must See North Carolina Lighthouses

lighthouses in North Carolina

National Lighthouse Day was on August 7th! In the spirit of the “holiday,” we want to enlighten you on the must-see lighthouses on our North Carolina coast. If you’re looking for an exciting and educational adventure to round out the summer, you won’t want to miss any of these picturesque North Carolina lighthouses.

On the Northern Coast, we have multiple lighthouses such as the Ocracoke lighthouse, the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, and the Currituck Beach lighthouse. The Ocracoke lighthouse, originally located on Shell Castle Island, was constructed in 1794 and completed in 1798. The lighthouse was placed there to assist mariners through the Ocracoke Inlet, it was a great help for twenty years, until multiple lightning strikes destroyed the lighthouse in 1818. A new Ocracoke lighthouse was built and finished in 1823 at the south end of Ocracoke Island, it still stands today along with a keeper’s house. The Ocracoke lighthouse is the second oldest operating lighthouse in the nation and, while it’s no longer open for climbing, the site can be visited daily.

On the Central Coast you’ll find Cape Lookout lighthouse. Located on Harker’s Island, the original Cape Lookout lighthouse was completed in 1812 at the cost of $20,678.54. The model was a wood-framed octagonal tower with a brick stairwell. After multiple complaints from seafarers that a taller and more stable lighthouse was needed, a new lighthouse was constructed in 1859. In July 2010, the lighthouse was opened to the public for regular climbs. The island can be reached by boat, or local ferry service, from Morehead City or Beaufort. Come take part in the horse watching, shelling, fishing, and camping!

The Southern Coast features the Oak Island lighthouse! This lighthouse, the last to be built in North Carolina, was completed in 1958. The light is located a whopping 169 feet above the water! Unlike most other lighthouses, the Oak Island lighthouse doesn’t have a spiral staircase, instead it features a series of ship ladders totaling 131 steps. Tours to the top of the lighthouse are available year around by appointment for anyone age nine and older. These tours must be booked two weeks in advance, so make sure you plan ahead!

From a historical perspective, these lighthouses have played integral roles in leading ships and their crew members home night after night. Whether you want to climb to the top or simply look up and soak in the beauty, you won’t want to miss out on a visit to one of the magnificent lighthouses that sprinkle the North Carolina coast. Start mapping your voyage to the coast today. 

Sylvan Heights Bird Park: A Wild Adventure

Have you ever wanted to experience South America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia without leaving the beautiful North Carolina coast? Look no further than Sylvan Heights Bird Park. Located on the Northern Coast in Scotland Neck, NC, Sylvan Heights is unlike any zoo, aquarium, or animal-centric park you have ever experienced.

About the Park

Originally from England, Mike and Ali Lubbock moved to the United States in 1981, with an extensive knowledge of waterfowl in tow. After continuing to cultivate their expertise with the species, establishing a breeding center and working closely with the North Carolina Zoological Society, Sylvan Heights Bird Park opened in 2006. Their mission is now to advance conservation of both waterfowl and wetlands as they also serve as an international center for agricultural training and research.

 

Educational Visits

One goal of Sylvan Heights is to “act as a local education resource for avian biology and wetlands ecology.” From field trips to summer camps, children are regularly visiting the park and expanding their knowledge about birds, endangered species, conservation efforts and much more! After receiving a grant, Sylvan Heights has worked to develop and host a STEM program for rising 9th graders called Soaring Into Science. Field Trips to Sylvan Heights will provide students an opportunity to observe the largest collection of waterfowl from all around the world. Other programs designed to enrich education include K-12 programs, overnight programs, summer camps, and more.

 

Plan Your Visit

If you are ready to observe and learn about wildlife from all over the world, Sylvan Heights Bird Park is open Tuesday through Sunday year round. Open to the public, the park offers guided walking and golf cart tours, in addition to planned educational visits, events, and more.
