Nags Head among ‘Sleepy beach towns perfect for fall’ – USA Today

As reported by USA Today, Nags Head is among 10 iconic U.S. beach towns that are perfect after Labor Day. Visit in fall, when you can drive happily and have beaches and lighthouses to yourself. The winds pick up again in autumn, an ideal time for kite-surfing or flying a kite in Nags Head. The sand cools off at Jockey's Ridge State Park, where you can climb the tallest natural sand dune in the eastern U.S. without burning your feet. In October, glide beneath the dark sky during a meteor shower and spot wildlife on a nighttime canoe or kayak tour. Find end-of-season sales in boutiques, surf shops, art galleries, and the outlet mall, then refuel with fall comfort food at the seven stops highlighted on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Nags Head Inn is conveniently located to all the great fall fun. Some of our favorite upcoming fall events include the Outer Banks Seafood Festival Oct 11 & 12 that is held within walking distance of Nags Head Inn on sound side in Nags Head. and the Bluegrass Festival Weekend Oct 4-6th nearby at Festival Park.
