How to Have the Best 4th of July on Topsail Island | Coastline Realty Vacations

It's hard to believe another summer is upon us. That can only mean one thing; Independence Day is right around the corner. Here on Topsail Island, we know how to throw a birthday party, and there is none bigger than the 4th of July. Gather your friends and family this 4th and head on down to Topsail Island for all the best events and, of course, the best beaches on the North Carolina coast. Here is everything you need to know to have the best Topsail Island 4th of July celebration. 

Start Your Day 

Let's get the day off on the right foot this 4th of July. It is going to be a fun one. First head over to your favorite coffee shop before you head to the beach for a quick walk. Can you think of a better way to start your day than an early morning walk along the beach. Nothing crazy here, just head out for a half hour or so. Get your blood moving, burn off last night's dinner and get ready for the day.

Topsail Island is famous for its family-friendly atmosphere and activities. So it only makes sense during your 4th of July vacation to take some time to explore Topsail Island with your family. We have three affordable and fun ways to get out and explore the island and its unique charm. 

 A Bike Adventure

Topsail Island is a very bike-friendly place. With quiet streets and fun places to stop all along the island, you'll love seeing where your two-wheeled adventure takes you. If you have your own bikes that is great. If you need to rent bikes, check out the good folks at Herring's Outdoor Sports where you can rent a bike for 4 hours for $10.00. Hard to beat that. Please remember to wear your helmet!

Hit The Water

If you're looking longingly at the water and wondering what's the best way to explore the water around Topsail Island, it might just be by kayak. Don't worry if this is your first experience kayaking. The folks at Paddle NC have all the equipment you need to get out on the water quickly and affordably. Make sure to bring the camera as you never know what wildlife and marine life you might see. 

Learn About Our Local History 

One of the most interesting things about Topsail Island is the unique role we played in the nation's defense. For a period immediately after World War II Topsail Island was home to a secret missile program called "Operation Bumblebee." We don't want to give away all the fun so take a little time and head over to the Missiles and More Museum and learn all about it and other Topsail Island history. 

End The Day With A Bang

No proper Independence Day celebration can end without fireworks, and we have two great shows. The main event is on July 3rd, in Surf City. Then for a little off-island fun, just around the corner on July 4th, you'll find the Holly Ridge Sneads Ferry fireworks. Both events are free, great fun, and family-friendly.

Surf City Fireworks 

The events kick off at 5 p.m. on July, 3rd, at Soundside Park. The best way to get there is to walk or ride your bike as parking is a little tight. There will be live music, plenty of great food, and lots of kid-friendly activities. Fireworks start at nightfall (about 9 p.m.).
