Don’t worry, while the crowds may fade away the action is just picking up. With numerous events going on, specifically on the Central Coast, you and your family are sure to have an incredible time! After all, fall is the ideal time to relax at the beach, take advantage of the warmer water temperature and the cooler nights that allow you to miss the extreme heat of the summer. Looking to explore inland? We’ve got some great suggestions for things to do during your next NC coast getaway:

No matter where you choose to lay or head, be it the Northern Coast down to the Southern Coast, it’s bound to be a memorable vacation. However, the fall kicks off a slew of exciting events on the Central Coast that you won’t want to miss. First, plan a visit to the historic waterfront town of New Bern and enjoy a tour of Tryon Palace, North Carolina’s first state capital. Next, make the short twenty-minute trip to Morehead City where you’ll enjoy fresh local seafood brought in by one of the many charter fishing boats that line the waterfront.

Now, don’t even think about leaving the Crystal Coast, North Carolina’s gem, without a visit to historic Beaufort, named America’s Coolest Small Town by Travel + Leisure and listed among “The South’s Best Small Towns 2017” by Southern Living. Better yet? Reseve a room, or a rental home, and stay awhile! If you’re craving peaceful walks along the waterfront, mixed in with some excitement, plan your stay during one of the area’s local events including the second annual Beaufort Brewin’ Craft Beer Festival, taking place On September 29th and 30th  and the 2nd Annual Beaufort Wine and Food Runnin’ on Empty – Road Race on September 30th.

Did we mention the NC Coast is home to seafood that’s better than anywhere else? Well, if you love seafood as much as the locals, you won’t want to miss the always-anticipated North Carolina Seafood Festival, in its 31st  year, on October 6th through the 8th. This annual event offers locals and visitors alike an opportunity to wander the waterfront, dine on fresh Got to be NC seafood right out of our local waters, scream for joy on carnival rides, shop for unique items from local vendors and end the night with a powdered sugar-coated funnel cake!

Whether you’re looking for a serene escape after the crowds depart, a weekend filled with excitement, or maybe a bit of both, you won’t want to miss fall on the North Carolina coast. Clear your calendar and start planning your getaway today!.
