1. Enjoy a Campfire
Sitting around a fire on the beach in the Outer Banks can be a fun activity for friends, family, and couples alike. OBX fall sunsets are especially breathtaking, so head to the beach for your bonfire a little before the sun goes down to see this radiant sight.
2. Shop Till You Drop
The Outer Banks is full of locally-owned shops, boutiques, and specialty outlets. Treat yourself to a nice OBX shopping spree and you are sure to find many unique treasures on these beautiful barrier islands. Some shops to check out are the Blue Pelican Gallery, Farmer’s Daughter, and Gypsea Fleur.
3. Get on the Water
Whether you choose pier fishing, surf fishing, or charter fishing, you’re bound to have a catch when you fish in the Outer Banks. Fall is also the perfect time for surfing, kiteboarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, or hiking. With the water still warm and the crowds smaller, fall is the perfect time to get on the water in the Outer Banks.
4. Learn About the History of Outer Banks
Climb the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, learn more about settlers at Festival Park, or visit the Wright Brothers Memorial to learn more about the history of OBX.
