Fishing, Festivals & Fall Fun

It's the best time of the year for an adults-only or friends' getaway where summer-like temperatures and fewer crowds paint a picture-perfect fall at Carolina Beach. Attend seasonal events, spend some time outdoors exploring, and experience a colorful fall the Carolina Beach way.

Take a quick getaway with the kids and visit the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher to Trick or Treat Under the Sea October 26-28 for a spooky, safe place with thrills and gills. Taste the nation's best BBQ from "ribbers" across the nation at the Port City Ribfest November 10-12 at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk.

From the coral and orange of a seaside sunset you'll see on your stroll along the Boardwalk to the beautiful hues of the water as you hike alongside at Carolina Beach State Park or kayak around the marsh, there are plenty of outdoor activities to experience a colorful getaway at the beach. After you've spent the day admiring the beauty of the island, experience the island nightlife scene like a true local and find your favorite live entertainment by the sea and under the stars. 

Check for special deals or book your fall getaway now choosing from seaside cottages to hotels overlooking the ocean and Carolina Beach Boardwalk.
