When to Visit Morehead City, NC

When planning a visit to Morehead City, consider both tourist patterns and your ideal weather before you book. Morehead City sees a wide variety of average temperatures, and it's often quite humid. That leads to pleasant temperatures some of the year but hot summer months and cold winter months. June is Morehead City's busiest month in terms of tourism, with July and May following close behind. As a result, you'll find higher prices for accommodations during these months. December is a slow month for tourism, so if you plan your visit then, it's a good time to find deals.

Carolina Chocolate Festival occurs in February, while October is the time for both the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament and NC Seafood Festival. The Crystal Coast Oyster Festival takes place in November, and Downtown Countdown happens in December.

Overall, spring weather feels moderate, with temperatures steadily rising from March through May. Rain also is common in these months. Spring is the second busiest time of year for tourism in the area, so you'll find a lot to do. June through August brings warm temperatures as well as a high likelihood of precipitation. The summer is the busiest time of year in Morehead City. You may find that accommodations cost more then and go quickly. Book early to lock in your preferred places.
