Once upon a time, the island closed right after Christmas. But today, many things are open straight through New Year’s and beyond. So if you’re in the Outer Banks this New Year, there’s plenty of thing you can do.
New Year’s Eve Parties
Not only are many restaurants still open, many of them are hosting New Year’s Eve parties. Here are a few of our favorites.
The Roadside Bar and Grill Crab Pot Drop
Times Square drops a big disco ball. We drop a crab pot. What could be more Outer Banks than that? And so everyone can participate, the crab pot drops at 10pm, not Midnight. It’s great family fun.
New Year’s Eve at Aqua Restaurant
If you’re looking for some more grown up fun on New Year’s, check out how Aqua does New Year’s. Some of the best views in Duck, champagne and delicious dinner await you.
Basnightâ??s Lone Cedar CafÃ© – New Year’s Eve Celebration
Live music combined with the usual great food and drink available at Basnight’s makes this a New Year’s to remember. Festivities last until midnight. Of course, if you’re just looking for a place to eat out, Dinner service starts at 4:30.
Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant and Tavern New Year’s Eve Celebration
2 DJ’s, a great menu, and all kinds of cocktails are waiting for you at Kelly’s New Year’s Eve celebration. And don’t worry if you’re the designated driver, they also have ‘mocktails’ (which are really more like dessert.) Party favors are included.
Outer Banks Brew Station New Year’s Eve Bash
This party is brought to you by some big names on the Outer Banks; Outer Banks Distilling, Outer Banks Brewing Station and Mom’s Sweet Shop. This promises to be a great time for everyone. Not to mention it’s the home of the biggest balloon drop on the beach.
Day After, Before, And Beyond
Of course, there’s more to do here then just New Year’s. These Events are fun before and after the party.
Aqua’s 2nd Annual New Year’s Day Recovery Party
This unique Event takes place at aqua in Duck the day after New Year’s. They start at noon so you don’t even have to get up early for them. Barbeque, live music, comfort food and recovery cocktails are a few of the highlights.
If you missed the Winter Lights at Christmas, don’t worry. They’re up until January 23rd. And now that Christmas is over, it won’t be so crowded. It’s a great time to see them.
Wild horses are great symbol for the New Year and great to see at any time of year. Hose tours are open year round and it’s a great thing to do on New Year’s Eve day, before or after New Year’s.
Poulos Family Christmas Lights
Featured on the HGTV and the Today Show, this Christmas light spectacular will fill you with the holiday spirit. The last day to catch these lights is December 31st. So if you’re in town prior to New Year’s, this is a not to be missed Event.
Even though summer is over, it’s still a great time to be at the Outer Banks. Be sure to check out our specials page for last minute deals. https://www.atlanticrealty-nc.com/specials
