Did you know that there are 49 more days until Spring? That means that you have over a month and a half to enjoy a winter vacation at the beach! Because of our mild and wonderful winter weather, Ocean Isle Beach is the perfect place for an off-season retreat. Most folks think that you have to travel all the way to Florida or the Caribbean to escape the blistery & frigid temperatures. However, the southeastern coast of North Carolina is perhaps one of the most fantastic and overlooked winter vacation destinations.
It’s time to leave your snow boots behind, and pack-up for a unforgettable, affordable, and stress-free vacation at the beach. It may not be swimsuit season yet, but Ocean Isle Beach still has tons of offer!
Wonderful Winter Weather That Will Make You Glad to Be in NC
One the best things about an Ocean Isle Beach winter is the temperature. Of course, all of eastern NC experiences the four seasons, and with that does come a dip in temps during January and February. Overall, however, our daily weather is wonderfully mild.
For the month of February, the average daily high is 62 degrees F. And it is very common to see days reach well into the 70’s. This creates a fabulous atmosphere for a winter retreat. As we head closer and closer to spring, the days typically just get warmer and warmer.
When packing for your OIB winter vacation, you are going to want to think “layers”. Jeans, t-shirts, a light sweater, a light jacket, a thin scarf, and even your favorite pair of flip-flops. Mornings and evening can be chilly, but be prepared to shed your layers as the day warms up.
You are going to love the warm winter rays of the sun beaming on your face, as you soak up all that our lovely winter weather has to offer.
