Making the Most of Your Beach Vacation


If you're looking for a destination that offers the perfect combination of relaxation and fun, consider planning a visit to the beaches of North Carolina. Renting beach houses in North Carolina is a great option for groups of all sizes, whether you're looking for a romantic, two-person getaway or big family vacation that doubles as a reunion. While you're there, make sure you follow these tips to make the most of your time in this amazing area.

Be Smart About Sun Safety
While the summers in North Carolina can certainly be hot, you might find the weather to be more temperate during the spring and fall. Even if it's not a scorcher, make sure you're taking the proper steps to protect yourself from overexposure to the sun. Otherwise, you could be dealing with sunburns, dehydration and even heat stroke, all of which can put a damper on your vacation.


Try Visiting the Beach at Night
Most people enjoy visiting the beaches during the day. However, you can enjoy fewer crowds, more pleasant weather and some gorgeous views when you venture out in the evening. A sunset picnic or evening stroll is a great way to relax and unwind while enjoying the show as the sky transitions from the vibrant hues of dusk to a starlit night.

Take Time to Enjoy Local Cuisine
Whether you're looking for delivery, takeout or the chance to dine at a restaurant, North Carolina beaches have hundreds of unique and local options that you can't find anywhere else. If you're a seafood lover, you should definitely take advantage of the fresh and tasty fare you'll find so close to the ocean. There are also numerous restaurants that have become famous for other types of cuisine, from pizza and donuts to Caribbean-inspired dishes.


Explore the Numerous Historical Treasures
While the beaches are breathtaking, there are several other interesting and beautiful places to visit when you're in the area. The Wright Brothers National Memorial is located where the famous sibling duo piloted the first flight in a powered aircraft. Several lighthouses are also within driving distance, including the famous Cape Hatteras lighthouse. You can also explore the shipwreck of the USS Huron. Many history buffs enjoy stopping by Fort Raleigh, the mysterious settlement that eventually became known as The Lost Colony.

North Carolina beaches truly do have something for everyone, no matter what your age or interests. Don't forget to venture out and enjoy everything this incredible area has to offer.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?
