Outer Banks - March, April, or May?

Jump to last reply

DH and I have been talking about revisiting the Outer Banks (for the first time in 40 years) next spring. Both of our daughters have moved to Raleigh, been there for a number of years but never visited OBX. So we're talking about renting a house and having them come visit (separately since they usually exchange pet care).

Ideally, I'm hoping since we're off-season we could rent for about 10 days and include 2 full weekends. But April is problematic because one daughter has a convention April 4-11 and a rental from April 12-20 would include Easter weekend, which might not be considered off-season. We'll have to see.

We would like to avoid mosquito season (and black flies) as much as possible, so I'm guessing March would be better than the last few days of April into early May. We would also like to avoid a prolonged rainy period.

We used to stay in the Kitty Hawk area except for one time when we camped on the beach on Hatteras; Kitty Hawk/Nags Head is undoubtedly so much more developed now that we might prefer to stay farther south or even go north to Corolla or Duck to rent a house.

Our overall plan is to take the ferry from Swan Quarter to Ocracoke for a couple of days, then the ferry to Hatteras and north for the house rental portion, then stay in Manteo for a couple of days before we return home.

Any advice on the most auspicious time to avoid bugs and precipitation would be appreciated. Also comments on temperatures we might expect in March. Or suggestions for rental agencies, towns or areas any of you prefer on Hatteras.
