Top 5 Autumnal Outer Banks Activities

Spring and fall are the perfect times to visit Atlantic Realty because the temperatures are less hot and humid, and there tend to be fewer people. While crowds have thinned, there’s still a plethora of fantastic autumnal Outer Banks activities to keep you entertained. Treat yourself and your loved ones to our beach house rentals, NC, and a tranquil coastal getaway.

1. Perfect Weather for Beachy Outer Banks Activities 

The average temperature highs during September and October range between 73 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, which is prime for swimming, hiking, fishing, biking, and other outdoor ventures. If you’ve booked a Nags Head rental, consider hosting a bonfire on the beach. You’ll have to get a permit to do so, but it’s worth it. Roast corn, hot dogs, and marshmallows over a peaceful bonfire while watching the moon rise over calm, Atlantic waves. 

2. Visit a Local Pumpkin Patch

Hit up a local pumpkin patch for that authentic autumnal experience. Meander through farms with a hot cider in hand, sign up for an oxen ride, and pick out your favorite pumpkin. You can even make use of your private Outer Banks house rental to paint or carve your pumpkins.  

3. Sip Some Autumnal Outer Banks Brews

While the classic IPA’s of summer are super crisp and refreshing, there’s something comforting about the spiced lagers, ales, Belgians, and porters that hit brewery taps in the fall. Whether you prefer a sweet pumpkin ale or a classic lager, you’re sure to find a brew to your liking at a nearby OBX brewery. There’s a wide variety of price ranges and on-tap selections, so don’t shy away from trying out a few in order to find your favorite. 

4. Check out the Outer Banks Fall Events

Just because the crowds have thinned doesn’t mean there aren’t many local events to partake. It’s quite the opposite! If you love seafood, their Seafood Festival is a must-go Outer Banks activity. Find out what other festivities might pique your interest:

Jockey’s Ridge Kite Festival

5. Dune Climbing at Jockey’s Ridge State Park

Autumn is the perfect time of year to take on the dunes at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. They’re much easier to climb when the sun doesn’t burn as hot, and you’ll be rewarded with outstanding views. Plus, the park is open all day, so the possibility of bumping into other tourists is slim.

Top 5 Reasons to “Coastal Distance” on the Outer Banks

Coastal Distancing is social distancing – Outer Banks style!   Here are the top 5 reasons you should make plans to Coastal Distance on the OBX this Fall! 

  1. Privacy – You have the entire home or condo unit to yourself!  No common areas like hotels or resorts or sharing rooms/spaces like in Airbnbs and VRBOs. 
  2. Cleanliness – Our properties are cleaned by professional housekeeping staff who follows industry guidelines for disinfecting and sanitizing homes between guests.  We use commercial grade products to ensure your home is safe and clean for your arrival. 
  3. Safety – Linens are delivered from a commercial laundry company and left if their sanitary plastic wrap for guest to use.  This limits handling.    
  4. Keyless Entry – to further enhance the contactless experience, almost all of our homes feature keyless entry.  No need to check in at the office – go straight to the home to begin your vacation. 
  5.  Internet Acccess – With high speed internet access in most homes, it’s easier than ever to work and attend school virtually from anywhere – even the beach!  
Work remotely or learn virtually anywhere with coastal distancing

So, grab your family (and your masks) and head to the Outer Banks this Fall!  Search for vacation homes here:  weAReobx.com
