spring is arriving on the outer banksAhhh… Spring is arriving on the Outer Banks! The daffodils are beginning to bloom, the birds are chirping happily in the sunshine, and seasonal businesses are starting to reopen. We’re all excited to see what the coming season has to hold.

New restaurants and shops are opening up and down the OBX and luckily we are right in the middle of it all. Our location allows our visitors full access to the length of the Outer Banks! We may be called the Nags Head Beach Hotel – Outer Banks Travelodge but we are actually located in Kill Devil Hills within walking distance of the Wright Brothers Memorial, right across the street from the beach, and smack dab in the center of the action!

spring is arriving on the outer banks1Spring brings so much fun to the Outer Banks and March kick-starts spring with everything from tons of St. Patrick’s Day activities including the famous Kelly’s St Patrick’s Day Parade to amazing Easter activities and celebrations! If you haven’t been here to see the Kelly’s St Patrick’s Day Parade you really have to come and see for yourself. It is actually one of the biggest St. Patrick’s Day parades on the East Coast. Giant crabs, lawn chair marching bands, and dancers are just the beginning. Each year is a treat and the viewer are often treated to beads and sweets!

If you are a bird watcher this is an ideal time to come to the OBX. The Outer Banks is right in the path of the Atlantic Flyway and in March the bird populations can vary greatly depending on whether the birds are north or south bound. Plus we have a amazing variety of indigenous birds that will keep you busy for hours.

Although the weather isn’t quite right for swimming on sunny days the beach is a wonderland. Beach combing in March can be fascinating. You really never know what you might find. And there are sand castles just waiting to be built!
