How to Have a Great Winter Beach Vacation
Winter is here, but that doesn't mean you can't head to the beach for a much-needed getaway. Let's face it, 2020 has been a doozie and 2021 is certainly offering its share of stress. Now is the perfect time to let it all go, pack the bags and head to the beach. Here are a few ways to make the most out of your next winter beach vacation on Topsail Island.
Choose a vacation home
Of course, the first step to having any incredible winter beach vacation is to choose your vacation home. Did you know we have condos, large homes, oceanfront homes, canal homes and rentals in all the best areas on Topsail Island? Ok, what we are really saying is there is no excuse for not finding an incredible vacation rental at a great price. All of our homes are following the strictest cleaning protocols and there is not a better place to social distance than the beach. What are you waiting for? Let's get started planning your Topsail Island winter vacation.
Wet a line
Winter is a great time to wet a line and try to catch the big one. Topsail Island is well-known amongst fisherman. Whether you want to head out on the water or surf cast from the beach, there is always something biting on Topsail Island.
If you need help with bait, rigs, or have other questions about fishing, our vibrant community of local fisherman will be happy to help. We can all agree that no day of fishing is a bad day.
Take advantage of the local seafood selection
Did you know that all of our homes have well-appointed kitchens? Winter is a great time to dive into learning to cook seafood. Topsail Island has tons of great places to get fresh local seafood. From grilling to baking, boiling to frying, discovering the joy and health of cooking seafood (maybe not the fried kind) is one way to make the most out of your winter vacation.
There is perhaps no better time of the year than winter to look for seashells. Because the weather tends to be a bit rougher and the wave action more intense, shells are more abundant than ever. If you are a true fan of shelling, winter is your prime time. Plus, you can't have much more fun for the price of a cheap bucket and a walk. This is also a great time for those metal detecting enthusiasts to find plenty of treasure.
Catch up on your reading list
There is just something fun about sitting in a big chair with a book on a cool day, with the sound of the ocean in the background. Reading is a passion that many of us share, but all too often don't have the time to indulge. Winter on the beach is the perfect time to kick back, pour a cup of coffee and just let yourself drift away –one page at a time. Don't worry, we won't tell anyone about your little indulgence.
Reconnect with the family
If your home is like ours, the air is filled with the constant ding, buzz, vibration and notifications of cell phones, laptops, and tablets. Winter is the time to change all that. Make some time with the family to reconnect without technology. Put all the phones in a basket and break out a board game or puzzle. Make an evening or afternoon of it. Have a special meal and truly spend time with each other. You'll be amazed at what happens.
