Driftwood ChartersThanksgiving is a fun time of the year to be on the Outer Banks. There are several events happening for the week of Thanksgiving. Here are a few:

Fishing on the Outer Banks is Really good now! - This is one of the best times of the year for surf fishing. Fishing is great right on the Nags Head Inn’s 4-acres of oceanfront hotel! In addition you will love the convenience of Pier Fishing at nearby Jennette’s Pier just down the beach from the hotel. Jennette’s Pier is also having the Jennette’s Third Annual Redfish Saturday Tournament Nov. 30 from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Kites with Lights - Saturday, November 30 - Sunset. Watch the sky light up with Kites with Lights! As soon as the sun starts to set, go to nearby Jockeys Ridge and see huge lighted kites soar above the dunes.

Santa Under the Sea - Santa is stopping by the NC Aquarium on Friday & Saturday  and is going scuba diving with the sharks! Get your picture taken with Santa while he is under water, tell him what you want for Christmas, and write him a letter to put in the drop box. Check out the NC aquarium in Manteo for more information.

Come stay with us for Thanksgiving in the Outer Banks! Reserve your room at one of the best rated Outer Banks Hotels - Nags Head Inn Oceanfront!

Jockeys Ridge, Nags Head’s Hidden Perfect Beach

jockeys ridge nags head sound beachYou may already be aware that Jockeys Ridge State Park showcases the tallest naturally occurring sand dune on the East coast and a premier destination for kites plus hang gliding, but did you know it also has a near "perfect family beach" on the West side? Somewhat protected from the chilly Northeast, this West facing beach typically stays warm on into the autumn afternoons while the waters are very calm, safe and shallow ... even hundreds of feet from shore. You won't be catching any waves, but you may elect to paddle board, float or just play in calm, clean waters. To discover and explore, just Book Your Reservations Now at Nags Head Inn  and once you are here, check-out the South Entrance to Jockeys Ridge State Park, across from the Kitty Hawk Connection Shopping Center ... turning West on Soundside Road driving all the way back to Roanoke Sound, then turning Right into the public parking spaces by the beach. Of course, you can also hike back up the magnificent dunes from there or enter the park's main North entrance on Carolista Drive at milepost 12 on Hwy 158 Bypass (South Croatan Hwy). There you will find facilities, displays and lots of interesting programs plus activities for the entire family to enjoy.
