Nags Head

Most visitors take a trip to Nags Head to enjoy the beach, but this Outer Banks town offers more than just waterside entertainment.
Bring the kids along to Currituck Beach and Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. Take a break from the city and head to Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Currituck Banks Reserve. Get out of town with these interesting Nags Head side-trips: Museum of the Albemarle (in Elizabeth City) and Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education (in Corolla). There's much more to do: delve into the lush surroundings at Nags Head Woods Ecological Preserve, pause for some photo ops at The Monument to a Century of Flight, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and find something for the whole family at Full Throttle Speedway.

To see photos, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Nags Head trip planner .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 72°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
