A lot of families have made coming to the Outer Banks a tradition each year for Thanksgiving because if you are staying in one of our vacation rentals, there will be plenty of space for everyone. Staying at home can be stressful because many of us want our home to be perfect, meaning we stress over everything.

It will be totally up to you as how you want to spend your day.
Fall is Here
Fall has officially come to visit the Outer Banks this year and we have to say that it’s wonderful. While the weather has a little chill to the air, it’s still much warmer than living up north. One of the most amazing times to be on the Outer Banks is during the fall months. The weather during the day seems to warm up for you and your family to get plenty of sunshine and play in the sand. And the night time air has a chill to it, but not so much to where you wouldn’t want to take a late evening walk on the beach. This is the perfect time of the year to come celebrate Thanksgiving with your friends and family.
Even during the off-season, the Outer Banks Coast is nothing but absolute beautiful. Spending Thanksgiving watching the waves roll in and out from your oceanfront vacation rental is what everyone dreams of. You may see fishing boats off in the distance and people taking their holiday pictures for their Christmas cards on the beach. With miles of beauty how could you not want to vacation here? Take a stroll along the beach, have your family holiday pictures taken, or enjoy a nice night in the hot tub. There is absolutely a ton of things to enjoy while you vacation here.
Shopping Until You Drop
After Thanksgiving, while the Christmas music begins to play, go shop until you drop at the Nags Head Outlet Mall. We know that most everyone likes to make sure you get the best deals for Christmas shopping. We know that while you can find wonderful deals at the outlet mall, you can also find great deals at some of the local shops too. Don’t forget about possibly bringing home something that one of the local artists made or painted to share your Thanksgiving vacation with. The Outer Banks is known for having some of the best homemade gifts to give to others for the holidays. Don’t miss out on any of them this year.
