As the weather heats up, so does the fun at the NC Outer Banks. Summer is prime time for outdoor activities like fishing, swimming, surfing, boating, kayaking, hiking, cycling, and so much more.
Best Time to Visit
The best time to plan an Outer Banks vacation depends on your idea of relaxation. The weather, crowds, and activities vary by season. In the summer the Outer Banks see the highest temperatures and the biggest crowds. In fall, crowds thin but temperatures are still warm. Winters are cold and quiet — but serene.
Best Months for Thawing Out
Spring Break signals the start of the season, so starting in March it’s all hands on deck for local businesses. Temps are still chilly with a high of 60 – 67F in March and April, rising to mid-70s and 80s in May. April is the driest month in the Outer Banks, making it a good candidate for a vacation if you’re not working around a school schedule. Endured a string of sub-zero months in the north? The Outer Banks are the right place to start your spring thaw.
