Tips for Spending Labor Day Weekend on the Outer Banks 

For Families 

In the late summer months, temperatures in the Outer Banks dip down into the 70s and low 80s, with bright, sunny days that are tempered by gentle breezes. These mild temps make it easy to enjoy your favorite family activities without overheating. Take the kids to the water park, reserve your spot on a dolphin touror challenge your group to a round of mini-golf. You can even plan to have a BBQ at your vacation rental. Of course, we believe that after-dinner ice cream cones are mandatory during the last days of summer.  

For Couples 

If you’re looking to get away for one last time with your significant other, your itinerary might look like a lazy afternoon on the beach followed by a beautiful sunset dinner at a waterfront restaurant. Maybe you want to visit Sanctuary Vineyard for a relaxing tour & tasting or grab a cold one at a local breweryEither way, you’ll find plenty of romantic things to do during your Labor Day escape. Cheers! 

For Groups of Friends 

Want to get together with your besties before reality sets in? Plan a final friend’s getaway in OBX. The guys can hit the links at one of our local golf courses while the ladies spend time at the spa. In the evening, rally everyone together and take on the Outer Banks nightlife scene. It always feels good to let loose before the busy fall months. 

Note: Because Labor Day Weekend can draw crowds, we recommend making all of your dinner and activity reservations in advance.
