Outer Banks What To Do: October


As much as I love the Outer Banks in the summer with all the swimming and sun bathing I can stand, there is nowhere better than the beach in October! The humidity (and crowds) has finally left and I can really get outside and enjoy where I live. I'm not the only one either. There are numerous events taking place all over the OBX every weekend. October is, by far, my favorite month of the year. I swear, the sky always looks bluer and the sunsets are more golden. I love the warm days and cool nights. I love pumpkin everything and I love Halloween! This is a great time to take your family on a small getaway, before the craze of the Holidays sets in, where you can really enjoy what you have. Whether you want to come and spend days flying kites and taking at the beach or if you want to party for a cause, this is the place for you.
