It’s been a great summer here on Wrightsville beach. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end. Although the close of the season is upon us, we still have one more holiday weekend to go out with a bang!
Even though Starbucks and Port City Java broke out the pumpkin spice extra early this year, the summer heat still lingers in the North Carolina low country. And everyone knows, the best place to spend any hot holiday weekend is at the beach! Stay cool in the surf or enjoy the view from the beach in the comfortable shade of one of our Cool Cabanas.
The beach is bound to be crowded this weekend with everyone trying to soak up one last bit of summer fun. It’s hard enough to find parking, so don’t fight for a spot on the beach too! Just choose your perfect spot and we’ll set up one of our Resort Style Chair and Umbrella Sets for you before you arrive.
If you’re looking for fun activities for the family, head to Wrightsville SUP to rent some stand up paddle boards or kayaks. Never been? No problem! The team offers on site tutorials before you head out on a self-guided tour of the beautiful salt marshes. Looking for more of a challenge? Try a paddle board yoga class or go on a surfing excursion with the experts.
Coming in from out of town and need a place to say? The Surf Suites is offering a September specials when you stay two or more nights. With private oceanfront balconies in every room, you can’t go wrong! If your not a fan of the sand, enjoy that sweet, salty breeze from the oceanfront pool.
Friday night, take the family out for some fireworks and a free concert at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. Don’t miss out on the last fireworks show of the season!
After a few beautiful days soaking up the sun and playing in the waves, you might want to relax at Bluewater Grill for some live music from “Back of the Boat.” Enjoy some local seafood or sip on a cold beverage and take in the breathtaking view of the sun setting over the Intracoastal.
If you’re looking for more of a family excursion, head to Carolina Beach for the last of the Free Movies at the Lake Series, closing out the season with Disney’s Cinderella.
No matter how you choose to spend this holiday weekend, have fun and be safe! Don’t forget to rent and relax with Cape Fear Beach Rentals.
