Nags Head---Crowded right after Labor Day?

Planning our first trip to Nags Head for the Tuesday thru Saturday right after Labor Day. How crowded is it then, in terms of occupancy & traffic? Thanks for your opinion. Cheers!------Ken

It shouldn't be too bad. North Carolina schools are already in session, and Virginia schools start the Tuesday after Labor Day, so many families will have left the area. Even Labor day & the weekend before is not too bad, in my experience.

We always go Labor Day week. Labor Day weekend is a little crowded (not summer like), but the week itself the crowds go away as school is back in.

Thanks Pens. Seems like we picked a good week. Here on the Jersey Shore, Labor Day's crazy, then mellows out afterward.

You won't see a lot of traffic until around the 3rd week of June and then loads of people until 4th week of Aug.

OBX thanks. Same as the Jersey Shore where I live. ----Looking for opinions on the Surf Side Hotel. Looks good based on reviews here. Know about the place?

Great time to come. Beaches are wide open, rates are down, and restaurants are relatively uncrowded. Water is perfect then. Just watch the Hurricanes forming in the Atlantic.
