How to Have the Most Fun This Easter in Topsail
It's hard to believe that April is here and another Easter holiday has rolled around. What are your plans? Why not add some beach time to your Easter holiday this year? The Atlantic Ocean beckons you, the sun is shining, and the beautiful barrier island beaches await your arrival.
If you're not sure how to best spend your Easter holiday on Topsail Island, let us show you how. Here's how to have the most fun in Topsail over the holiday. All that's left to do is get here.
Relax in your Topsail rental.
Spend this Easter holiday relaxing on the beach and in a Topsail Island rental where the luxuries of a vacation are combined with all of the comforts of home. Enjoy the amenities of a vacation rental perfectly suited for you and your family by personalizing and customizing your stay to your preferences. You know what's important to you and your family on vacation, so make sure your beach accommodations are the best they can be. Pool? Ocean view? Boat dock? Pet friendly? The list goes on and on. Make the most of your vacation rental and its amenities, and be sure to spend plenty of time in. You can't put a price on quality time with your family! Kicking back and getting some much-deserved R-n-R is top priority on any vacation. Everyone needs the downtime, including you. Put it at the top of your vacation to-do list.
Hop to the beach.
No matter where you stay on Topsail Island, you're only a few hops from the beautiful beach. April on the island is stunning as spring blooms throughout the coastal landscape. Get out there as often as you like and immerse yourself in the natural elements. The sun is warm, the salt air invigorating, and the sand is inviting. Stare out over the expansive Atlantic Ocean and watch the waves ebb and flow. Listen to the pounding of the surf onto the shoreline. Feel your stress and worries melt away. Topsail beaches are the perfect place to get away from it all for a while, find perspective, and restore a sense of peace and calming in your life. We could all use a little more that!
Catch an Easter sunrise.
Vacations are usually for sleeping in and not having a schedule. But we'd recommend setting aside at least one morning to get up early, grab your coffee and watch the sunrise over the Atlantic. The warm vibrant colors are unfiltered by haze and humidity and the view is spectacular. Since Topsail is a south-facing beach, you get the bonus of watching the sunset over the sound. Both are highly recommended!
Visit Soundside Park for the Easter Egg Hunt.
It wouldn't be the Easter holiday without an egg hunt for the kids. You won't miss out on that just because you're on vacation. The annual Easter Egg Hunt at Soundside Park in Surf City is local favorite with both vacationers and residents alike. It's free and open to everyone. This year's Topsail Easter Egg Hunt happens on Saturday, April 15, 2017 beginning at 10:30a.m. for kids ages 10 and under. It's BYOB (bring your own basket), so that's all you really need. You might want to bring your camera so the kids can get their picture taken with the Easter Bunny. Even if you don't have kids, it's fun just to come and watch from the sidelines.
Add some seafood to your Easter meal.
You can still have your traditional Easter meal in the comfort of your Topsail rental. But why not make it extra special by complementing it with some fresh, locally caught seafood? Whether you fish for the catch of the day or you opt to visit the local fish market and bring home your favorite seafood indulgence, it's really nice to have a taste of Topsail added to your Easter table.
Get out on the water.
The beach is only part of the island fun. The water is the another. Get out and explore the local waters and get a different view of Topsail Island from the sound, from the ocean or both! How you do it is up to you, but you have plenty of options. You can set sail on a Topsail Island Cruise where you get a scenic sightseeing tour combined with dinner and a sunset. You can also take a fishing charter for a day filled with adventure on the open water and see what you can reel in. Or you can go low-key where no motors are necessary and paddle your way around the island in a kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard.
As you can see, Easter on Topsail Island is full of fun, adventure and many ways to relax. How are you going to spend it?
Isn't it time you started making plans to spend your Easter holiday at the beach? Topsail Island is the perfect getaway this time of year or any time you want a beach break. See you on the sand!
