Labor Day weekend is here and the beginning of a beautiful fall season is right around the corner! This season has been full of blue skies, glassy seas and that warm summer breeze that makes you want to lay back, relax and soak in that seemingly tropical sun. Today, the future of Hatteras Island returned back to the classrooms, which means soon those blue skies will be painted with luxurious sunsets, those glassy seas will be filled with an abundance of fish for the catching and that summer breeze will be just a little bit crisper, but still intoxicating nonetheless.

While we’re still enjoying the last weeks of summer here in Hatteras, the good times continue. There’s plenty of fun to be had while the salt air swirls through our hair and several of our local businesses are providing the perfect venue for an outing worth remembering, so be sure to check out some…or all…of these events and max out your vacation with good times and everlasting memories of the beach.
