It doesn’t matter if it’s the middle of winter or the height of summer, there are always things to do on the Outer Banks. Life has changed quite a bit on these outer sand islands over the past decade. Used to be that the main Outer Banks activities ended right after the last Labor Day visitor headed home. But now, year-round Outer Banks things to do include programs and events to entertain you, broaden your mind, invigorate your body or sweeten your soul. Outer Banks activities center around our glorious natural playground that offers sea and sound waters, vast open skies, giant sand dunes, woods and nature preserves filled with wildlife.
