Easter on the Outer Banks is pretty much like it is everywhere else—except the setting is prettier, although honestly it would be tough to make that case today. It’s certainly a cool, rainy day on the Outer Banks, although we’re looking forward to some better weather later this week.
With Easter falling early this year, there is a little bit of a gap between the spring the full force of the springtime schedule and the holiday, but things are going to really start popping on the Outer Banks soon.
There are some great events coming up in April creating a perfect reason to take a long weekend and visit the Outer Banks.
An interesting two days may be the Kill Devil Hills Historic tour followed by the Southern Shores Flat Top Tour on Friday and Saturday April 22 and 23.
Bikers, kick your Harleys into gear and plan on coming to the Outer Banks the week of the 16th to the 24th for the Outer Banks Bike Week, which is actually nine days, but who’s counting.
Here at Joe Lamb Jr., & Associates we do have some availability that week, so if that can be fit into plans, check us out online or call us at (800)-562-6257.
