August On The Outer Banks

Are you wishing for an Endless OBX Summer in 2017?

You will love August on the Outer Banks at the Sea Ranch Resort!

Summer is fast and furious here on the Outer Banks. There is a point in the month of June when warm, blue waters show up on our shores and bring an unbelievable amount of sea life with them. We see schools of fish, dolphins and plenty of birds as well. This time period also brings more than just ample sea life – it brings human visitors from around the world. Hundreds of thousands of people cross the bridge each weekend to join the summer fun we love to have here on the OBX. As the action ramps up into the July 4th celebrations, the old saying “time flies when you’re having fun” seems to take hold and then, before you know it, thoughts of the impending fall season start to arise. Over the last days of July it sometimes feels like summer is beginning to wind down.. We playfully talk about the almost endless OBX summer, and there truly is still plenty left to enjoy! Indeed, August on the Outer Banks is a fantastic time to visit with an abundance of events happening and summer very much in full swing yet. Many families try to get a last vacation in before the start of the school year, as there are still many events and activities going on and the weather is still fabulous. So, if you are already thinking ahead about the fall, let’s bring you back to the beautiful reality that is August on the Outer Banks with a list of some things that are happening in this upcoming month you should know about:
