Fall Events on the Outer Banks

Fall is the OBX Locals' Favorite Time of Year!

The temperatures become cooler, the pace more relaxed, and the crowds less abundant. With this changing of seasons also comes fantastic fall events!

Looking for Money Saving Tips?

  • You can save up to 50% off peak rates by making your OBX vacation reservation during the fall months.
  • The longer you stay, the more you save on average per night.

KEES is known for our FlexStay™ calendars but we also offer the traditional weekly stay as well as extended stays. Most KEES properties only have a 3 night minimum this time of year! Perfect for those quick weekend stays.
