Located along the Outer Banks, Roanoke Island is a unique place to travel to. It’s a great place to visit all year round, but especially in the fall. Even though it’s technically the “off-season,” there is still plenty to do, and a fun place to travel to with a lot of opportunities to explore.
Let’s look at a few reasons why you should consider traveling to Roanoke Island in the fall:
Comfortable Weather in the Fall
Especially in September and October, the weather in the Outer Banks and Roanoke Island is very comfortable. Typically temperatures are in the 70s and 80s, and water temperatures are in the high 60s/low 70s. These temperatures are great for outdoor activities, and it usually ends up being less humid and a little more breezy, which feels lovely!
There is Usually Fewer Crowds in the Fall
Because schools have started by September, you’ll notice fewer crowds and shorter wait times when you travel to Roanoke Island in the fall. It’s not uncommon to find uncrowded beaches, and to not have to wait for your table! If you have the flexibility, it’s worth waiting to travel in the fall to beat the crowds.
Seafood is Spectacular in the Fall
Throughout the Outer Banks, the fall offers excellent fishing. Which also means great seafood to all of the local restaurants. Fresh fish, crab, oysters, and other seafood will taste extra delicious during the fall months.
Great Time for Golfing
Because the temperatures are beginning to cool, it’s an excellent time for a golf getaway. Travel along the Island to find a course, plus you may find discounted rates!
Fishing is Fantastic in the Fall
Rumor has it, some of the best fishing you can do in the fall is right here in the Outer Banks! Fishing is a great way to relieve stress, and being near the water can help lower anxiety and make you feel more relaxed.
