Small Beach Town with Big Summer Activities

Kure Beach has big things planned to do this summer for you and your family. Dance the night away by the sea with Boogie in the Park on Sunday evenings, enjoy kids' programs at the Ocean Front Park and visit the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher to make some new feathered friends.

For a small beach town, there's never a dull moment with summer activities and events you won't want to miss. Visit the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher for underwater adventures, summer camps for the kids, and the Lorikeet Landing exhibit where you can feed beautiful exotic birds as they fly above you. Everyone will find a good time at Ocean Front Park with weekly live entertainment at the Boogie in the Park concert series and Story Time by the Sea with princesses, pirates, and fun crafts.

Take a picnic lunch to the Fort Fisher State Recreation Area and hike a sandy trail that leads to a WWII bunker where the Fort Fisher Hermit used to live, and pets are welcome too. If you're feeling competitive, challenge the family to a round of disc golf or bocce ball at Joe Eakes Park or see how many fish you can reel in at the Kure Beach Fishing Pier as a summer rite of passage.

Book your summer vacation now at North Carolina's Small Wonder and enjoy your time away.
