A Guide to 5 Top Outer Banks Events and Activities

While you may not get a snow-filled holiday, there are still plenty of things to do and see in the Outer Banks that bring the joyous energy of the season to life.

  1. Kick off the holidays with a memorable run. The Tipsy Turkey Beer Mile is open to 100 runners and takes place the day before Thanksgiving. This is a 21-and-over run, with prizes going to the fastest finishers.
  2. View colorful light displays at Elizabethan Gardens. WinterLights takes place from mid-November through December and is a holiday tradition you don’t want to miss. Tickets to the Manteo attraction are available online only.
  3. Kitty Hawk Kites hosts two memorable Outer Banks events. Say hi to Santa at Hanging With Santa, which takes place at Jockey’s Ridge State Park towards the end of November. They also help put on Kites With Lights, which lights the sky above Jockey’s Ridge near the solar Christmas tree.
  4. Trade in for sledding down a snow-covered hill for sledding down a sand dune. Rent a sandboard from Kity Hawk Kites and go flying down the dunes at Jockey’s Ridge. 
  5. For a different kind of holiday light tour, check out local lighthouses on a self-guided tour. Landmarks like Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse and Bodie Island Lighthouse serve as a lasting part of the area’s maritime history.
