Across the country, employees work hard year-round in the name of professional goals. While the satisfaction from a job well done can be rewarding, often employees are also looking forward to time away from the office when they can enjoy well-deserved vacations in exciting and new destinations. From gorgeous sandy beaches to mountainous settings, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to picking and choosing just the right locale to call your own for a getaway. While vacations are traditionally time set aside separate from work life, in the year 2020 and perhaps beyond—it may be time to consider combining our professional and leisure efforts in a unique way.
COVID-19 broke onto the global scene seemingly instantaneously in 2020 and with its arrival came a long list of changes and modifications that had to be taken into account quickly. In the name of safety and health, many employers began moving their employees out of the traditional office setting and into homes where remote work became the new challenge. While individuals worked to put together home offices on the fly and Zoom became a household term, those with little ones at home faced the additional hurdle of having to balance working at home with schooling at home and somehow separating out the two while remaining productive on both fronts.
As the year has progressed, many are still struggling with this elusive balance, and combined with the loss of previously planned trips, the results can be a bit dismal. Fortunately, with every difficult change comes a bright spot to notice and at Shoreline OBX, we see the opportunity shining through. While we’ve long been committed to creating amazing stays for visitors to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the exclusive name of vacation, this year, we see no reason not to take your work on the road. Working remote life offers up the flexibility to travel while still meeting deadlines. When you’re looking for a place to regain inspiration, be productive, and simply enjoy the life you live, get ready to pack your bags and make the Outer Banks your ultimate work and play destination.

Working Remote and Exploring the Best of the Outer Banks
When work is done for the day, the Outer Banks is the ultimate destination to get out and explore in vacation style. When you’re not settled into the sand, making the most of the rolling waves, be sure to set aside time to check out the many lighthouses that dot the shoreline. Capture incredible images as you make your way through a wildlife refuge or two and if you’re ready to encounter something truly spectacular, be sure to book a private wild horse excursion and see these majestic creatures in their natural habitats, far from the crowds.
