I have spent weekends in the Outer Banks before, and my recommendation is to visit in the off-peak: late spring or — preferably, even — early fall. The water stays warm through September, and you’ll get sunny, temperate days through much of October, when the summer crowds have long since evaporated.

Still, the beach is sprawling enough to give vacationers enough elbow room during the peak season, even if the roads and bike paths get crowded. And even in close quarters, the people are friendly. Everyone’s on vacation, so no one’s in a rush. Faster bikers will shout “good morning!” as they whiz past you.

The Outer Banks, in particular Duck, Corolla, and Currituck, were the focus of a travel article featured in the Houston Chronicle. It’s no surprise that we receive praise from all corners of the country – every year we welcome visitors from all over the world. Some pass through on their way up or down the Atlantic Coast, while others stick around for a lengthy, relaxing vacation in a spacious beach rental. Wherever you hail from, however long you stay, you are always welcome here!
