Longtime visitors will tell you – quietly – that Fall is their favorite time to visit the Outer Banks of Currituck County.
Shhhh. Can you keep a secret? When the summer crowds go back to work and school, the weather and the ocean stay warm on the northern Outer Banks well into October. For those in the know, that means beautiful beach weather by day, and crisp, cool evenings perfect for family barbecues, camping and long walks on the beach.

The off-season vacation home rental rates? They can’t be beat, either. Come slip away for a night, a long weekend or a whole week.

Get out and enjoy
Just about anything you can do in the summer is available in the fall, too – for a whole lot less. You don’t have to go crazy packing your car full of gear, either.
You can rent surfboards, boogie boards, beach gear, fishing equipment, bikes, kayaks … you name it. There are great activities here to keep everyone in your group happy.
Many companies offer reduced off-season rates on guided tours to see Corolla’s famous wild horses, too.
Jump in a 4X4 for a guided tour of the northern beaches where Corolla’s wild Spanish Mustangs have roamed freely for generations. Whatever you do, don’t forget your camera.

An Outer Banks Thanksgiving
Gather the family … without the crowds
Year after year, extended families gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving Outer Banks-style, with all the comforts of home and a beautiful, wide-open beach right outside their door.
Our large, beachfront homes are perfect for putting the whole extended family under one roof, while still giving everyone plenty of elbow room.
Plenty of things to do outdoors, too.
Roast a turkey out on the deck in the fresh sea air, fill the table with freshly caught seafood from the local waters, then work it all off with a long walk on the beach.
