We live in Oregon, and a popular thing to do at the beach in the winter is storm watch. It can be pretty awe inspiring to sit in your warm beach house and watch the clouds roll in, and the waves crashing the shore.

Also, our beaches tend to be in the 40 - 50's in the winter, and are year you'd residence for many. There are great shops and lots of gallery's to browse in all the time. Several of our beaches also have great outlet malls.

Another popular winter beach trip is to go with extended family or friends, then play games and watch movies. I know several groups of women who do scrapbook weekends, or church retreats. Off season has such great prices for renting that it is perfect for this kind of thing. And if you are lucky enough to have a dry day, walking on the beach and checking out the tide pools is great fun.

A few restaurants are open, the grocery, get an oceanfront home with views of the beach. Nothing much else to do there-although on Hatteras, the various fire departments have fish frys on alternating nights and sometimes there's music.
sorry, I did mean Outer Banks

I googled Ocean Banks, and it came up with someplace in New Hampshire. I have to admit I was surprised someone wanted to go there in the winter!!! The OUter Banks should be pretty quiet this time of year. If you're looking for more stuff to be open, you probably need to look further south, maybe Myrtle Beach.
