OBX Rainy Day Guide

OBX Rainy Day Guide

If you spend enough time out at the Outer Banks, at some point you’re going to run into some rainy weather.  Whether you’re there for a couple of days or a full week, a wet forecast should not deter you from enjoying the OBX.  There are plenty of activities for folks of all ages.Have a look at these recommendations.  These are listed in no particular order. So have a look at our OBX Rainy Day Guide.

Take In a Movie

The RC Theatres KDH Movies 10 (http://rctheatres.com/location/8764/Kill-Devil-Hills-Movies-10-Showtimes) allows for the classic family activity.  I know you don’t think about movies out at the beach, but you can’t go wrong!

Visit an Aquarium

The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island (http://www.ncaquariums.com/roanoke-island) is a great place to explore.  Learn about the aquatic wildlife native to area as well as some other interesting species.  The aquarium has always been a great place to visit, but they have also made some renovations over the last couple of years.


Maybe not a fun activity for EVERYone, but certainly some folks see value in it.  And if not for anything else, you’ll get alot of walking in.  Visit the Tanger Outlets (https://www.tangeroutlet.com/locations) You can grab some pretty good deals at this popular location in Nags Head.  As an aside, be sure to hit up some of the locally owned beach shops.  For example, Beach House Dreams (https://www.beachhousedreams.com/) has unique items that everyone will love.  They also work with local artists to display their items.


Go on and visit OBX Laser Tag (http://www.lasertagobx.com/)  There are so many mini golf places at the OBX, but with them being outdoors, laser tag gives you an inside alternative to have some fun.  

Escape the boredom

With 7 different rooms from where you can solve problems, and ultimately escape, OBXscape Rooms (https://obxscaperooms.com/) is sure to be a hit with the family.  These venues are quickly becoming popular across the nation.  Why not the OBX too?  Looks like age 10 and older is appropriate.  Alternatively, there is another facility asking Will You Escape the OBX? (https://www.willyouescapetheobx.com/) This facility has 4 rooms and is located “off beach”.  No real age minimum, but looks like the common theme is around 10.  After all, you’d like the kids to have a good experience helping you escape!


The Jumpmasters Trampoline Park (https://www.jumpmastersobx.com/) is a great way to get the energy out of kids of every age.  They have events and attractions for ages toddler on up.  Some of the attractions consist of an open trampoline area, a ninja warrior course, dodgeball course and climbing wall.  To put it in perspective, the facility is over 14,000 sq ft.

Remember, for more ideas have a look at https://mvillaobx.com/our-obx-top-10/ Some of these are not exclusively indoors, but perhaps you can make it work.

We look forward to having you as our guests!

  1. A rainy day is the perfect time to visit to the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras and learn about the numerous shipwrecks and maritime history.
