Whether you’re planning a getaway with friends or family, vacations are a great way to spend time with the ones you love while escaping the craziness of everyday life. These moments don’t have to be limited to the summer vacation season. Any season is a great time to plan a trip to North Carolina, and Sea Ranch Resort in Kill Devil Hills is the ideal place to call home base. If you’re thinking of where to head on your next escape, consider visiting the Outer Banks in the winter. 

1. Temperatures Remain Mild

For some places across the country, winter means freezing temperatures and piles of snow. That’s not necessarily the case in the Outer Banks. This coastal area of North Carolina averages winter temperatures from 50 to 60 degrees, plenty warm for spending time outside. You’ll be able to spend more time exploring the area without worrying about the heat of summer. 

2. Summer Crowds Have Returned Home

Vacations can mean crowds of people. However, by planning your Outer Banks getaway for the winter, you can escape the summer crowds. This can mean things like more availability at the resort and lower rates. It can also mean fewer people when you visit popular attractions or partake in activities.
