Debuting this October, a new series on the PBS network TV travel series entitled “Getting Away Together” showing the growing trend in families’ gathering for vacation is now in production.
A different group of family members or friends is featured on each episode as they travel to a beautiful destination, stay at a luxury rental home and explore the area’s points of interest, unwind and spend quality time together.
Dare County and Currituck County tourism boards split the production costs as the series provides a great opportunity to market the area’s vacation home rentals. Aaron Tuell, director of public relations at the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau stated, “We identified some attractions and experiences that will help make the Outer Banks stand out in viewers’ minds as a great place to vacation.”
Visitors Bureau Managing Director Lee Nettles added, “Ours is one of the top vacation rental markets in the country, and this is a great way to promote the benefits of rental homes and help people become more familiar with the whole process. We boiled down our list of destinations to a handful to give people a good snapshot of the Outer Banks.”
