Plan Activities

Every couple has things they like to do together. Maybe you like to bike or go to the movies. No matter what you enjoy doing together, it's likely there is a place to do it or a way to do it in or around Topsail Island! However, if you are looking for some new ideas that are outside of your typical comfort zone, we have a few suggestions for you. Here are three activities you might enjoy as a couple that are easy and fun to plan. 

1- Living Like a Local

During your romantic getaway, go off the beaten path to find things that the locals do to enhance your vacation. Try something new like fishing, take a day trip to downtown Wilmington, or trying some new seafood. Need help? Give us a call! We have years of local knowledge to share. 

2- Delicious Food Is a Must 

A little thoughtful research before you get to your destination can help you find some enticing entrees! Think about breaking out of your usual box and trying a cuisine that’s new to you! Of course, here on Topsail Island that can only mean one thing… fresh North Carolina seafood! Yum. 

3- Moments in Motion Make Memories

Fitness-focused functions can increase your endorphins and help get the love feelings flowing. As you plan your trip, look for opportunities to engage in things like beach yoga, paddle boarding, golf, or other activities that get you up and active.

Unplug for a Few Days

Take a break from texting, calling, and answering emails. Take pictures, but consider waiting to post them to social media until you get home. You took this trip together to get away from all that, so take advantage of the opportunity to unplug and reconnect with one another.

It's All About the Food

Let's face it- you can't have a romantic getaway without some amazing food! During your getaway, think about planning a picnic on the beach or maybe using the well-appointed kitchen in your Topsail Island vacation rental to prepare something special for your loved one. Guys, this means you too! Think about it. A beautiful night, the sound of the ocean in the background as you share a meal with your loved one. Follow it up with a walk along the beach and you have the perfect romantic recipe! Not into cooking? No problem! We have tons of great restaurants to try right here on Topsail Island.
