Walk on the Emerald Isle beaches.
The beaches are filled with their usual beauty this time of year but with fewer people to have to share them with. With the busy summer beach season past, all of the coastal beauty is right here to enjoy without much interruption. Take a family walk, get your daily dose of exercise, and beach comb for seashells, sharks teeth and sea glass. Step outside your Emerald Isle rental and see where the beach path leads you. It's a new adventure every day, and one you'll look forward to each day of your beach vacation.
Get to know to the local community.
When you're out and about whether it's on the beach, around town, on the pier, in the shops, or at the local restaurants, take a little time to get to know our Emerald Isle residents better. You'll find that they're a wonderful source of local knowledge, suggestions and recommendations for any and all of your beach vacation adventures. Strike up a conversation and get some insider tips from those who know this area best.
Immerse yourself in nature.
Autumn is an idyllic time in Emerald Isle for most of your favorite outdoor activities. The temperatures are perfect for just about everything, the humidity has dropped, and the coastal activities await you. Go fall fishing, take a nature walk, embark on a camping excursion, paddle the local waters, explore the local islands or do whatever your adventurous heart desires. It's all here for you! You'll be surrounded by breathtaking beauty no matter where you go and what you do. Make the most of your time on the North Carolina coast this season.
Attend a local event in Emerald Isle or along the Crystal Coast of North Carolina.
Fall is so fun on the Crystal Coast. Not only do you get to enjoy the best of the beach, but you also get to enjoy all of the seasonal favorites that are part of autumn. Go pumpkin picking and take a hay ride, attend the Emerald Isle Halloween Carnival and go trick or treating, and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday at the beach this year. You can (and should) do autumn at the beach!
Catch a coastal sunrise and sunset.
Thanks to Emerald Isle's east-west beaches that face southward, you get a double dose of blazing color shows each and every day. With sunrises over the ocean and sunsets over the sound, you'll fall in love with the brilliant coastal sky show that's unfiltered by haze and humidity this time of year. Explore a few of our favorite places to enjoy them including sunrises on the beach and from the Bogue Inlet Pier, sunsets at Soundside Park, and all of your favorite views from Emerald Isle's waterfront and waterside restaurants. Bring your camera!
Visit an area farm or local farmers market.
Visiting the Crystal Coast's local farms and farmers markets gives you the best taste of the season and freshest local flavor. Along with roadside stands, you can make the quick trip to Garner Farms in Newport for autumn's best offerings and seasonal activities including pick your own pumpkins, corn mazes, and more. The Friendly Market in Morehead City and Salty Air Open Market in Cedar Point are local favorite places for local fresh ingredients, and taste of the season—and not far from your Emerald Isle rental. You can read more about these and other local farmers market favorites here.
