Things to Do in Coastal North Carolina For an Unforgettable Snowbird Season

Come for the weather, stay for the fun! The off-season is one of the best times to visit. Discover how you can enjoy the outdoors, the hot spots in town for live music, places to bring your pets, and how to have a festive holiday season.

Heat Up the Season With Outdoor Activities

Our area has all the warm weather you could want during the cooler months. Give your body the sun it craves by getting active outdoors. Rent equipment from our friends at Wrightsville Beach SUP and go for a morning time kayak tour through the Masonboro Island Reserve. Trek the nature trails winding around Fort Fisher State Recreation Area. Admire the color-changing leaves in Airlie Garden. Jog the Loop to warm up for the seasonal marathon races.

Tune in to the Season with live music

Local live music shows continue long after all the summer tourists head out. Snag a front-row seat at one of the local music concerts to kick off your snowbirding season with some jams.

Fall into the local scene

If you’re looking to spend a bit of time indoors, fall is the perfect season to retire from the beach and dive into the local scene from history to local breweries.

Tail-waggin’ Fun with Pet-friendly activities

Our pet-friendly snowbird rentals mean you won’t have to leave your pet behind this season. Wrightsville Beach’s Seaview A or B puts you within paws reach of the beach (pets are permitted on the beach during the off-season with a leash - see leash laws here). Or Topsail’s Rising Tide offers plenty of room for you and Fido.

Things to Know When Visiting During the Off Season

Our off-season runs from right after Labor Day weekend to right before Memorial Day weekend which means ALL of our vacation rentals offer lower rates during this time but long-term vacation rentals are only from October 1 – March 31. It’s a unique time to visit this popular winter beach destination with warm weather, fewer crowds, and tons of seasonal events.

Here are a few things to keep in mind for your stay:

The seasonal warm weather makes our beaches a popular destination for snowbird vacation homes in North Carolina. The weather in the fall and winter averages between 50-75°F, perfect temperatures to escape a cold winter. The beach remains open during the off-season, with water temperatures averaging 60-70s Fahrenheit.
The off-season is the least expensive time to visit Wrightsville Beach. The low season means you’ll find more affordable accommodations, and deals on local activities. Travelers who consider Wrightsville Beach too expensive during the summer can find more budget-friendly rentals during the fall and winter.

Since the weather is still warm, your typical beach gear is perfect. But a cool breeze can be expected at times on the beach and the early mornings and nights can get a bit chilly. We recommend packing a light jacket or sweater, pants, warm socks and closed-toe shoes.

But, because our vacation homes include linens, bath/beach towels and fully equipped kitchens, your suitcase is all you need to bring. Many properties also include beach accessories like beach toys, coolers and beach carts. Other amenities can be rented from our local partners at Seaside Linen & Rental Co.

That depends on you! Most of our vacation rentals offer as little as 3-night stays so you can come for the weekend or stay till spring. There’s lots of things to do during the off-season that make our area beaches a great place to visit. Plan a weekend getaway with friends in our oceanfront properties or find monthly rentals for snowbirds looking to stay for a few months.
Planning your extended stay is a breeze! Once you’ve picked your home and dates leave the rest to our friends at Southern Magnolia Concierge. They can stock your fridge, make reservations, arrange special occasions, and other personalized services. Reserve your stay today, and let us make it your best getaway yet!

Escape the cold winter with off-season vacation rentals from Sea Scape Properties.

Fly down with the rest of the snowbirds looking to enjoy the warm weather in our professionally managed vacation homes.
We have options for short stays as low as three nights or extended stays.

We look forward to hosting you this fall/winter season!
