Flying High in Summertime

Expect anything but ordinary when you bring the whole family to get away from it all at Carolina Beach before the kids go back to school. Let your spirit and the boardwalk be your guide when visiting this colorful beach destination as both will lead you to the marina for fishing charters and cruises, fireworks overlooking the ocean and lively entertainment at the gazebo just for starters.

The nationally-recognized Carolina Beach Boardwalk features new eateries opening this summer like Carolina Smokehouse as well as a newly-extended walk where you can easily visit the Carolina Beach Fishing Center & Marina to set up a fishing charter expedition. Family thrill seekers and sightseers will love the seaside amusement rides and Fireworks by the Sea & Boardwalk Blast lighting up the summer nights. 

Visit Carolina Beach State Park for an astronomy lesson in the night skies or hike one of the trails with a Park Ranger to learn about the indigenous Venus Flytraps that grow in abundance. Kids will also love Free Movies at the Lake with favorites like "Hidden Figures" and "The Lego Batman." If you want to explore the island, take a self-guided tour on a surrey bike big enough for the whole family or take a guided paddleboard or kayak tour with Paddle NC.
