Carve out some time to enjoy fall by the ocean! Salt air breezes, great seafood, and fun seasonal activities make booking a Carolina Beach vacation rental a fantastic idea. We have a list of reasons why October and November at the beach is the perfect place to spend time with friends and family.  

Fall Events in Carolina Beach

On Saturday, October 29th, the young ones will enjoy a Halloween-themed version of Story Time by the Sea! Wear your favorite costume and join Fairytales and Dreams by the Sea for storytelling and crafts. Three Princesses will host this magical program at the Kure Beach Ocean Front Park at 10:00 a.m., and it’s a free event. You’ll want to have your camera handy for photo opportunities!

The Cape Fear Kite Festival will take place November 5th through 6th, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Fort Fisher State Recreation Area in Kure Beach. Serious kite flyers, spectators, and novices will enjoy kites of striking colors and all sizes. The fall breeze is perfect for this event! Live music, food trucks, and arts and craft vendors will be on-hand for this annual event. 

Planning a Thanksgiving stay at Carolina Beach or Kure Beach? Don’t miss the Island of Lights opening celebration on Saturday, November 25th at 7:00 p.m.  View lighted displays from the one-mile-long trail along Carolina Beach Lake and visit Santa Claus. What better way to kick off the holiday season?

Things to do this fall at Carolina Beach

We can’t talk about fall at the coast without mentioning the great fishing and seafood you can enjoy later in the year. For an experience the big kids won’t forget, book a fishing charter to catch Spanish mackerel, mahi, or tuna. 

Up for an independent adventure? Cruise the Intercoastal Waterway in a pontoon boat and explore the area from the water and at your own pace.

Fall may be the very best time to visit Carolina Beach State Park. Easy hikes allow you to explore the coastal ecosystem and animal habitats up close. Walk along Sugarloaf Trail for truly fantastic birdwatching this time of year!
