Why Visit the Outer Banks for Spring Break?

The Outer Banks is the perfect place to visit during spring break for a number of reasons, but above all else, it checks all the boxes of what you’d want out of a beach vacation. From the gorgeous weather to the amazing attractions, the Outer Banks has a lot to offer locals and tourists alike during their much needed vacation.


OBX Spring Break Weather

During March and April, the average daily temperature is 65 degrees while the average temperature at nighttime is 50 degrees. So, during the day, you can enjoy the same attractions that are available in the summer without having to worry about the heat.


Things To Do

Speaking of attractions, the Outer Banks offer a host of exciting attractions that are perfect for everyone in the family. OBX offers shopping, restaurants, museums, and more that will provide hours of entertainment.

Seasonal Restaurants & Shops

Shop and eat like a local at the Outer Banks! During the spring, most of our restaurants start to open back up after the long winter season. Luckily, there aren’t as many crowds as there are in the summer, so you’ll be able to eat at local restaurants, like Black Pelican Restaurant, Kill Devil Grill, OBX Brewing Station and Good Winds Restaurant, without having to wait.

Additionally, we have beautiful outdoor shopping centers that you can browse through on a nice day, like the Outer Banks Mall and The Duck Waterfront Shops.


OBX is packed with fun activities that everyone can enjoy for hours. During this season, you’ll be able to take a long walk on the beach, visit local shops, or fish on one of our famous fishing piers like Jennette’s Pier.

You can also take advantage of all the natural and historical attractions that are in the area, like Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the North Carolina Aquarium, and nearby Roanoke Island. These areas are going to have less crowds during the spring season, so you can spend all day taking in the sites or learning more about our exciting community without the long lines.
