7 Things To Do In The Outer Banks In Winter
Catch the sunrise from the beach.
Staying at an oceanfront hotel gives you a front row seat. Shutters on the Banks is where I stayed.
Visit some of the many lighthouses! This is Currituck. You can climb this one seasonally for a fee.
Ocracoke Island Lighthouse. The lighthouse is closed to the public and you must take a ferry to visit. Still beautiful!
One of the most popular - Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Usually you can climb this one but it’s been closed for COVID.
Check out this view while you’re waiting on the ferry at Ocracoke! There is a trail behind the DOT building.
Try ALL the food. We loved Art’s Place, Ortega’z, and Jason’s Restaurant.
Search for the wild horses at Corolla. The weather wasn’t cooperating but on a pretty day usually you’ll see them. Don’t get within 50ft.
Don’t miss the Wright Brothers Visitor Center & Museum! Fee is $10/adult or free with an America the Beautiful pass.
The museum is all about the Wright Brother’s lives and has a replica of their first working plane.
You can walk or drive to the Wright Brothers Memorial. We drove since it was raining.
Jockey’s Ridge at sunset. Take the ridge area Nature Trail for this view.
Walk to the top of the dunes and keep heading straight towards the edge of the park and you’ll see this.
