Fall Colors on the Outer Banks

Ask any local and they’ll tell you that fall on the Outer Banks is their favorite time of year. The season is winding down, the temperatures are still in the mid-to-lower 70’s and the true colors of the Outer Banks show themselves amongst the sea oats, beach grasses and quiet neighborhoods. 

Early mornings on the Outer Banks bring hues of yellow, peach and brightening blues; while evenings welcome vivid pinks, reds and oranges that cascade across the sky. A lush golden tone drapes the islands during this shoulder season as the sand and sea oats are left unattended to bask in the sun. When the summer air pulls back and welcomes fall, the humid island breeze turns into a salted crisp air that pushes the cobalt blue ocean to and from the shoreline; lapping at your bare feet.

With the surrounding colors complimenting one another and the ocean lulling all beach-goers, the low-lying shrubs and indigenous trees remain a deep shade of green that compliment the golden sands along the Outer Banks in the fall. It is though the islands are exceptional at recognizing this change in weather and reply with pulsating shades that both excite and calm the soul.
