Fall Refresh

Wrightsville Beach is hitting the reset button as tourism businesses reopen. Fall means mild temperatures and ideal beach side activities. Catch up with friends on an island weekend getaway while enjoying local restaurants or spend some time with your significant other on a romantic retreat. From catching a breathtaking sunrise or sunset (here you get both) to wave-watching while enjoying fresh seafood, autumn is the perfect time to get outside and explore the reenergized Wrightsville Beach. Visitors planning future travel to Wrightsville Beach are encouraged to call accommodations and attractions in advance to confirm availability prior to their trips.

From walking miles of pristine coastline to taking in views and fall hues along the Loop, it's easy to stay active on vacation here. Mild temperatures make it delightful to still enjoy scenic cruises and an array of watersports like stand up paddle boarding or kayaking. If you've always wanted to learn to surf, fall is the best time with warm ocean temperatures.

Wrightsville Beach has the perfect mix of nightlife and restaurants; enjoy craft cocktails by the marina at Bluewater Waterfront Grill. Catch live music at The Palm Room and end the night like a local with a beach bar experience at Lager Heads Tavern. From authentic Tex-Mex at Tower 7 Baja Mex, classic surf-n-turf at South Beach Grill, southern and French creole at 22 North or oysters on the half shell with a side of crispy tater tots at Shark Bar and Kitchen; foodies love the diverse mix of cuisine found at Wrightsville Beach.

Fall festivals and competitions make for fun day-to-night.Sample over 100 different breweries while catching live music by Charley Crockett at Lighthouse Beer & Wine Festival. It's never too early to make plans for one of Wrightsville Beach's biggest and favorite family events with the annual North Carolina Holiday Flotilla.

This fall, indulge in resort amenities, stay in an oceanfront condo, or vacation at a beach cottage. Whatever you choose, enjoy the island life well into fall.
