Last updated on December 21st, 2020Spending Thanksgiving on the Outer Banks with family is a great way to kick off the holiday season. The weather is generally mild, with highs in the mid-60s, with lows dipping to the 50s at night. It’s possible to have a sunny Thanksgiving Day that is warm enough to spend a good portion of the day relaxing on the beach. In that case, we recommend planning ahead for your Thanksgiving meal. We’ve rounded up our feast recommendations for Thanksgiving on the OBX. Whether you’re looking for dine-in or take-out from a local restaurant, to pick up a complete meal, or enjoy local Outer Banks seafood on Thanksgiving, we’ve got you covered.
