Sunny Days & Fall Faves

Fall is the perfect time for adults to play while the kids are away. Enjoy a couples rendezvous or catch up with friends while enjoying seasonal events. If the active life is more your style, compete in or attend one of the many competitive races NC Surf to Sound Challenge and more. Breathe deep and enjoy a yoga class on the Crystal Pier or live music at local nightlife spots.

Voted as the Best NC Beach Destination in WRAL's Out and About Voters' Choice Awards, it's the perfect place to book your fall getaway.

Fall brings signature sporting events for swimmers, bikers and runners alike. Join the SUP crowd and paddlers from around the globe for the 6th annual NC Surf to Sound Challenge in November.
