Vacationing in North Carolina for spring break is a wonderful idea, especially going to the Outer Banks with kids. The coastal area boasts several Outer Banks activities for children—whether they’re learning to walk or just accepted a college offer. Guests of all ages will find something they enjoy during spring break in North Carolina. Luckily, most spring break activities for kids are situated near our Shore Details’ vacation homes. So no matter which of our beach houses in the Outer Banks you’re looking into, there will be countless Outer Banks activities nearby.

Water Sports

When in the Outer Banks, you’ll likely be searching for ways to be on the water. The most common way to enjoy the ocean is by exploring nearby Outer Banks equipment rentals, such as jet skis and boats. Other popular Outer Banks equipment rentals include kayaks, surfboards, and paddleboards. Recently, windsurfing and kiteboarding are two of the most requested Outer Banks activities. There are several facilities situated on beaches that offer guided lessons, such as Kitty Hawk Watersports. For an extra treat, Island Cycles & Beach Gear gifts Shore Details guests a $250 voucher to use on free beach gear rentals, such as bikes, kayaks, and paddleboards.

Crabbing in the Outer Banks

While there are several attractions you’d like to try in North Carolina during spring break, we bet that crabbing in the Outer Banks never crossed your mind. For those of you who have never taken a moonlit stroll down the beach, Ghost Crabs are the most active and visible at night. Locals and guests alike shine flashlights along the shoreline to spark the crabs’ reaction. Keep in mind; you can also go crabbing in the Outer Banks during the day. Just dig in the shallow water, and dozens of critters will crawl to the surface, such as sand crabs and sand daggers.
