Since we live here and can’t imagine a better place to be, as far as we’re concerned any season is a good time to visit the Outer Banks. That being said, we must admit that a quick getaway, long weekend or weeklong vacation during the winter months does come with a challenge that other seasons don’t have … where to go for a bite to eat?
Things do slow down during the winter on the Outer Banks. Not as much as it did 10 to 15 years ago, but there are a number of business owners who close up shop in January or February for scheduled vacations or to head out of the country in search of good surf. Nonetheless, with a bit of direction and effort, finding a good meal during the slowest time of the year is definitely possible on the Outer Banks.
