44. Outer Banks Golden Years

Ah retirement… You’ve worked hard and now you are ready to enjoy the “golden years”. So why not consider retiring to the beach? Idyllic days spent beach combing, fishing, painting, or pursuing any number of other pastimes followed by evenings spent simply enjoying a cold beverage while watching the sunset are certainly alluring. But the Outer Banks presents so many activities for retirees, that many complain about being busy all the time.

The weather on the Outer Banks is generally nice all year-round. Winter certainly stops here, but it doesn’t stay long and the golf courses are open all winter. Spring can be luxurious and bright with gentle breezes off the water. Summers are no hotter or cooler than other beach resort communities but it can be crowded during tourist season. And fall… Well fall is the best time of year on the OBX. Beautiful clear days, warm sound and ocean water with great fishing, and uncrowded world class restaurants.

Throughout the OBX there are senior centers, clubs, community sports, and other activities that appeal to everyone who lives here. Whether you’ve been waiting your entire life to try tap dancing, competitive swimming, you want to become the next Monet, or the next singer-songwriter sensation this could be the time and place to try.

With Norfolk International Airport just a short commute your family will never be far away. And, soon enough, you’ll have developed your own local “family” because, after all, the Outer Banks is really just a small town. Everyone here is happy to meet you and glad you are here.
