Avon is located in The Outer Banks region of North Carolina. This is an area rich in history and natural beauty that has become one of the most beautiful vacation areas in the country. The Outer Banks is a series of barrier islands that meanders along 120 miles of breathtaking coastline between Corolla and Ocracoke. Visitors have their choice of swimming, sunbathing, fishing, scuba diving, sailing, hiking, birdwatching and many other recreational options. Many find golf to be a delightful challenge in The Outer Banks, where courses resemble the Scottish links courses. The beaches in the Avon area are stunning - huge sand dunes and wispy sea oats dot the coastline where the sand is perfect for sandcastle building or collecting seashells. One of the most famous attractions in the Avon/Outer Banks region is the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, located in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. At 208 feet, the lighthouse is the tallest in the U.S. and is loved by artists, photographers, tourists and locals. Also near Avon is the Wright Brothers National Memorial located in nearby Kill Devil Hills. A vacation at the seashore in Avon, North Carolina is sure to leave you feeling refreshed and renewed - ready to face the challenges of daily life once again.

Avon Weather & Climate

The Gulf Stream has some direct effect on North Carolina temperatures, especially on the immediate coast. Though the Gulf Stream lies some 50 miles offshore, warm water eddies spin off from it and moderate the winter air temperatures along the Outer Banks. Coastal fronts are common during the winter months, and can push inland, bringing warmer than expected temperatures to the coastal areas. However, at times the cold Labrador Current passes between the Gulf Stream and the North Carolina coast, offsetting most of the general warming effect the Gulf Stream might otherwise have on coastal temperatures. The meeting of the two opposing currents sometimes provides a breeding ground for rough weather. Summer air temperatures along the immediate coastline are lower than those even a few miles inland. Tropical hurricanes come close enough to North Carolina to influence the weather about twice in an average year.
