You know that feeling you get on the last day of an Outer Banks vacation? When it’s time to go home? Those sad and sudden realizations that come Monday morning, everything goes back to normal?
It’s kind of a drag. You wave goodbye to the dunes, pack up the car and resume your workday routine.
Sleep. Commute. Work. Commute. Repeat.
Sure, you like your job, but you miss the sand. You miss the easygoing afternoons. The only thing that gets you through daily rush hour traffic and conference calls is counting the hours to your next beach getaway.
I feel your pain. I’ve been there.
You fall in love with a place and wish there was a way to keep that “vacation feeling” going all year long. But that doesn’t seem practical. Maybe you’ll just wait until you retire.
You don’t have to wait.
In 2005, my wife and I decided to make our vacation house our permanent residence. The place we loved to visit became the place we loved to call home.
If the thought of living and working here has ever crossed your mind, there’s no better time to consider launching, expanding or relocating a business in Currituck County.
If you still need a reason to make the leap, here’s a fun fact: in the 18th century, doctors used to prescribe salt air, seawater and sunshine for their patients. It’s true. They believed that a few days at the beach could “cure all ills.”
Modern medicine has come a long way since then, but I think those docs were on to something.
Life here in Currituck County just feels different. It feels… better. Healthier. Happier. It’s hard to describe, but I’ll give it a shot.
You know that feeling you get on the last day of an Outer Banks vacation? When it’s time to go home? That sudden and sad realization that comes Monday morning, everything goes back to normal?
Imagine if you decided to stay.
That’s what living and working in Currituck County feels like.
