Romantic New Year’s Experiences

The beauty of a New Year’s getaway to the Outer Banks is that you won’t be met with the harsh winter weather conditions that are found elsewhere throughout the country. Instead, the Outer Banks typically enjoys January weather that lingers around the mid to upper 50s in the daytime, providing plenty of options for outdoor fun. If you’re looking to layer up and explore the shorelines in style, planning a New Year’s horse-riding event with your loved ones may be the way to go. It’s a thrilling way to take in the landscape and likely to be a highlight of your adventure.

You can also head to Sanctuary Vineyards to enjoy wine and great company. They offer delicious wines which you can try for yourself through one of their tasting experiences. With their Discovery Wine Tasting, you’ll choose a theme—Whites, Reds, White/Red or Sweet—and receive five samples tailored to the theme you pick. The Reserve Wine Tasting expands upon the Discovery tasting and includes six limited edition options usually reserved for their Bunch Club members. There is a small fee for tastings, but the fee is waved if you purchase a bottle to take home!

The Best Time to Visit the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks truly has no offseason. Follow our guide to the best things to do in each season!

Make It a Fantastic Fall Adventure 

Fall is one of the best times to plan a trip to the Outer Banks. At the beginning of fall, visitors can enjoy warm weather and smaller crowds. The water is still pleasant enough for a swim, and finding the perfect spot in the sand is always a breeze. You also won’t have to worry about making dinner reservations at the best restaurants in the area or booking a tee time at one of the best golf courses in the Outer Banks.

Prices start to fall again this time of year as crowd numbers wane and weather take a turn for the mild as well. You can still get out on the water and enjoy the shorelines, but you’ll need to pack layers just like you would in spring.

A Winter Journey to the Outer Banks

It may seem counterintuitive, but winter is still a fantastic time to visit the beach. Similar to fall, winter drives smaller crowds to the area. This means you’ll be able to enjoy the peace and quiet that you might miss out on during a summer getaway. Additionally, winter in the Outer Banks brings some incredible holiday events with it. Plan your winter getaway today!

This time of year, crowds are few but winter hikes, fat tire biking and photography are all activities that remain firmly within reach.

Consider a Spring Journey to the Outer Banks

Hurricane season is over and the Outer Banks is starting to warm up again. Spring is a great time to plan a trip to the beach. May and April, if you can make the time for a trip, introduce delightful weather and exciting events to the area. If you’ve never seen the Outer Banks during the most inviting time of year, you don’t want to miss out!

For travelers who appreciate mild weather conditions and fewer crowds, spring is a great time to journey to the Outer Banks. Across the board, prices this time of year tend to be lower before summer hits, while newly opened seasonal businesses mean you have all the options you would during the middle of summer too. You’ll want to pack layers this time of year, but if you’re willing to bundle up, those beaches and outdoor activities are sure to inspire.

Savor a Summer Trip

Summer in the Outer Banks is the most obvious time of year to plan a beach trip. Whether it’s by necessity or by design, visiting in June, July, and August is a first choice for most. The kids are out of school and the weather is hot enough to warrant a dip in the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean. As the most populated time of year, the Outer Banks comes alive during the summer. This means that finding incredible things to do is never a problem!

Those who love vibrant crowds, time on the sand, and soaking up the sun at every turn will want to make sure their travel plans to the Outer Banks focus on summer. This is the area’s peak travel season, so you will want to make sure you’re prepared for higher activity prices and more people in general. That said, every restaurant and shop in town is sure to be open, expanding possibilities for fun!
