Labor Day Weekend Activities to Enjoy

Take a chartered fishing trip


What better way to spend a summer weekend than out on the open water, reeling in some fish? There are plenty of great charter companies in the Outer Banks that can make sure you have a fun and safe fishing trip.

Pirate’s Cove Charters bases its operations out of Pirate’s Cove Marina on Roanoke Island. It’s adjacent to our private gated community and features almost two-dozen nearshore, offshore, and inlet fishing boats in the fleet. Check their website for a complete list of dates, time, and rates regarding your ideal fishing experience!

Visit One of the Many Lighthouses


The Outer Banks is home to multiple historic lighthouses that are definitely worth a visit. You can even go on a self-guided tour to learn more about these fascinating structures.

The Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse is a reconstruction of the old lighthouse and an active navigation aid for ships traveling through the Roanoke Sound and also houses educational activities in coordination with the Roanoke Maritime Museum. While it may not offer the same stately sight as most Outer Banks lighthouses, it’s definitely worth checking out while exploring Manteo.

Check out the Local Shops and Restaurants


There’s no shortage of great places to eat and shop in the OBX. Make sure to stop by some of the local favorites during your stay!

With multiple locations around the Outer Banks, the Front Porch Cafe is one of the best places to grab a quick breakfast before hitting the beach. Their menu is full of gourmet coffees, tasty cinnamon buns, muffins, scones, croissant sandwiches, oatmeal, and more! You can even stop by later in the day to enjoy a glass of wine or a beer on the porch! 

For shopping on Labor Day Weekend, you can enjoy the Tanger Outlets. The Tanger Outlets in Nags Head is home to more than a dozen famous brands. Shop some of your favorite designers like Ralph Lauren and J. Crew before making the short drive back to your Pirate’s Cove Realty vacation rental to show off your haul, and enjoy discounts and Labor Day deals!

Explore Roanoke Island


Roanoke Island has plenty of fun things to do for the entire family during labor day weekend. You’ll also find attractions like Roanoke Island Festival Park that are great for kids.
