Everyone knows that Ocracoke is a fantastic place to visit during summer, but have you ever considered coming for Thanksgiving? The weather is mild, and the beaches are wide open. Daytime high temperatures are often in the 70s, and it can cool off into the 50s at night. You can escape your daily grind and enjoy the beach and attractive rental rates.  

Fall fishing on Ocracoke is a must. Anglers are likely to catch red drum, speckled trout, bluefish, and striped bass. You could be eating more than turkey for Thanksgiving. Move beyond the traditional holiday fare and try something delicious fresh from the sea.

Wobble first, gobble later! Start your morning by taking a run, walk or stroll through Ocracoke Village, celebrate your finish with friends and then head off to enjoy your Thanksgiving feast. All participants will receive a shirt and a medal! All Ocracoke Island 5K Turkey Trot proceeds are donated directly to the community. Fun for all! 

Native Seafood will be having an Oyster Tasting event Thanksgiving week, Friday, November 25th from 12pm to 5pm. In addition to oysters, there will be steamed shrimp and clam chowder. For details visit Native Seafood online.

Gather together to enjoy not just the holiday meal but spend time with family and friends to make life-long memories. Everyone is a guest, so there’s no stress about determining who will host this year. 

All our homes come with fully equipped kitchens to make your holiday meals. However, if you want to skip the fuss of cooking all day, enjoy a meal out. We will update our blog closer to November with what’s open for dining out options.
