There are only a few weeks left of summer on the Outer Banks. The days will once again shorten and the busy traffic will wind down. Fall on the Outer Banks is the best season to be here! The extreme heat has come and gone, the water is still warm, the sunset times up with your dinner reservations, and recreational activities are still in full swing. Here is a master list of all the things you must try during an Outer Banks fall.
