Fall Season in Wrightsville Beach

The summer may have come and gone, but for residents of Wrightsville Beach and the surrounding area, fall is no less exciting! Even if you're not a resident, visitors and potential relocators will love spending time in Wrightsville Beach during the autumn months. With so much going on, from oyster roasts to holiday parades and much, much more, Wrightsville Beach is anything but boring in the off-season!

If you're looking for a fun, outdoor activity, Wrightsville Beach offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the cooler weather in a scenic atmosphere. In mid-November, the annual Surf to Sound Challenge offers stand-up paddleboarders from around the globe the chance to test their skills and raise money for a local nonprofit organization. If you're new to water sports, why not visit some of the local surfing schools and sign up for some lessons? Fall is a great time of year to get a feel for the waves, since the beaches will be less crowded. More experienced surfers will enjoy the fall months, as our hurricane season usually offers more favorable wave activity.

Looking for a way to get into the holiday spirit? Wrightsville Beach and the surrounding area hosts a variety of events that are sure to spread holiday cheer! Check out the 29th Annual North Carolina Holiday Flotilla on November 24, where local boaters decorate their vessels with holiday themes and parade them through Motts and Banks Channel. Or come sign up for the 8th annual Turkey Trot on the morning of November 22 (Thanksgiving Day) and help raise money for the Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity.

In addition to these special events, Wrightsville Beach also offers a variety of fun activities that you can take advantage of any day. Want to take a stroll along the beach? Maybe walk "The Loop?" You can do all this and more in Wrightsville Beach, and what's best about doing it in the fall is that you can enjoy these perks without having to pay for parking! Enjoy complimentary public parking in Wrightsville Beach from November 1 to April 30. Want to bring your furry family member along for the day? Dogs are welcome on Wrightsville Beach from October 1 through March 31, as long as they are on a leash. (Be sure to pick up after them, too or you could get stuck with a hefty fine!)

If this isn't enough to entice you to spend your fall in Wrightsville Beach, here's a few more reasons to head to WB in the off-season:
  • Fall fishing via charter boat, fly fishing or on Johnnie Mercer's Pier.
  • Airlie Gardens Oyster Roast in October (if you missed it this year, be sure to mark your calendars for next year's event!)
