Spring 2021: Things To Do In OBX
The cold winter weather is preparing to head back out to sea, which means Spring waves are on their way back to the beautiful Outer Banks. Spring brings warmer temperatures and longer days, creating the perfect environment for a beach getaway. We all know and love summer on the Outer Banks, but do you truly know Spring? Below are all the fun reasons why you should visit the Outer Banks during the Springtime.
Better selection of homes at affordable rates: Springtime is traditionally less busy than summer. A wide selection of homes will be available to you to choose from, and the rates still tend to be lower than they are during prime summer weeks.
Enjoy the outdoors before the summer heat kicks in: Whether you enjoy fishing, hiking, bike riding — Springtime's mild weather temperatures makes any outdoor activity more enjoyable. Enjoy some fun in the Outer Banks sun without having to battle humidity and hot temperatures.
Events, events, and more events! Grab your mask, emerge from your winter hibernation, and head on down to the Outer Banks for some fun and socially distanced Outer Banks events. Some of our favorite Outer Bank's events are back this year:
