Elan Vacations Launches a Pinterest Board with "My Dream Outer Banks Vacation”

We want to know why visitors and our guests love vacations in the Outer Banks. Whether it is relaxing on the beach, watching the wild horses, frequenting the unique shops scattered throughout the quaint beach towns, or anything else that draws vacationers to this island paradise, here is an opportunity to showcase your favorite vacations in the Outer Banks.

Pinterest is a go-to website for many people to get ideas for vacations, recipes, products and so much more. To celebrate the creation their Pinterest page, the staff at Élan Vacations is about to launch a fun contest on Pinterest.

It is an easy contest for Élan’s Pinterest followers. In addition to following our page, Pinterest users are urged to create a new board on their own page titled "My Dream Outer Banks Vacation.” On this board, they need to pin 10 items that represent their dream vacation in the Outer Banks using tags #elanavacations and #dreamouterbanksvacation. Five items must be repinned from our board. To submit entries, pinners must comment on the contest’s pin with a link to their own Pinterest board.

Not only do we want to see tons of creativity and originality with the boards, we want to see what visitors and residents love about the Outer Banks. A great way to think about making the Pinterest board is to think of it as a scrapbook. For example, post pictures of Nags Head or Corolla vacation rentals, a perfect picture of the sun coming up over the ocean, a picture of the wild horses running freely on the beach, favorite places to eat, and anything else that would turn up in a vacation scrapbook.

The best part about our contest is that we will select winners each week to receive a prize that is related to a picture pinned on a pinner’s board. The contest will run from February 1 through September 30, 2013. A winner will be chosen once a week (with the acceptation of the first week). Some of the prizes include:

  • Surf Lessons for two at from the Outer Banks Surf School
  • Family Beach Portrait Session from Island Photography
  • Moonlight Tour at Whalehead Club for 4
  • ATV Wild Horse Tour for two with Corolla Beach Adventures (must be done on at Saturday or Sunday)
  • Wild Horse Safari for a family of 4 with Corolla Beach Adventures
  • 10 minute introductory open cockpit bi-plane ride over the Outer Banks for two people (must be used between June-August)
  • Many more to come!

We are so excited to see what comes from our contest. "We know our guests love the Outer Banks and want to see what draws them to our island paradise,” says Norman T. Bibeau, President/CEO of Élan Vacations.
