As if you needed another reason to visit the beach, but honestly, Mother’s Day is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate than with a specially curated trip to one of her favorite places on earth? Though the past couple of years may have altered how we celebrated Mother’s Day, her dedication and commitment to her family never faltered. Today, more than ever, Mom’s busy schedule consists of wearing many hats and juggling personal and professional life and often at the same time. For this, she deserves some time away! We are confident these five reasons to celebrate Mom with a beach vacation might move you up the list—Hello, favorite child award!

Happy Mothers Day
1. Permission to Relax & Enjoy the Moment:

This year, let’s leave those never-ending to-do lists behind, let that laundry pile a little higher, skip those brain-numbing chores and pack your bags! You, my friend, are going on a well-deserved vacation! Let’s face it, moms can sometimes be long overdue for a bit of rest & relaxation. This year, give the gift of an opportunity to unwind and recharge because no one is at their best on empty. A magical day at the beach is always the best refresh, as nothing soothes the soul like a stroll along the shore together, wading in the cool morning water admiring a beautiful sunrise. After some well-deserved beach time, head on over to Island Massage & Spa for some Mothers’ Day pampering fit for a queen! Their many individual services and package selections make a day of pampering mom fun and easy. 

2. Delicious Meals Without the Clean-Up:

Our beautiful beaches are usually reason enough to visit. But, throw in a delicious meal made with the best in fresh ingredients and local cuisine, well, then you have yourself a Mother’s Day meal fit for all to enjoy! There is honestly nothing better than sitting down to a family meal you do not have to shop for, prepare and serve yourself. So go ahead and indulge without the hassle and chore of cleaning up. We suggest starting your day with a delicious breakfast from Gulf Steam Restaurant—a local favorite for over 40 years, offering hearty breakfast, lunch, and dinner options with a lovely view overlooking the Yacht basin and Charter Marina. Another local favorite is Kure Beaches’ award-winning Freddies Restaurant, serving a variety of your favorite Italian and American dishes made from the highest quality ingredients daily. Another local favorite is Jack Mackerel’s Island Grill, located in the heart of Kure Beach. Indulge in a fun casual dining experience with Caribbean-inspired dishes made from the best locally sourced products, and be sure to check out their second-floor deck! 

3. Shopping & Area Attractions:

Whether you’re looking for a commemorative souvenir or ocean-themed decor for your new house, you can find the latest in beach island trends and fashion here on the Boardwalk. Carolina Beach Boardwalk features a selection of locally owned shops and boutiques. Did you know it was once named one of the most awesome boardwalks in America by Budget Travel? This fun local attraction also offers easy and convenient access to our beautiful beaches! As the season begins to open, Carolina Boardwalk comes alive with activities, events, and attractions that everyone can enjoy. Be sure to stop by Pleasure Island Rentals, where you can rent a bicycle for easy exploration. Be sure to check out the self-guided tour that leads through Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Fort Fisher for an adventure we’re ‘shore’ Mom will love. Our selection of museumsan aquarium, and nature preserves also offer a wide variety of activities to choose from.

4. The Beach:

Life’s adventures can take us down many paths, and here at Carolina Beach Realty, we have found the best paths are covered in sand. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Mom than with a relaxing day at the beach! Our beautiful, picturesque beaches offer the perfect backdrop from which to celebrate. We’re positive she’ll enjoy her time soaking up some vitamin D while catching up on her reading, building sandcastles, or strolling along splashing on the shore. Whatever her favorite beach time activity is, she will treasure the opportunity to enjoy some new beach time fun together. 

5. A Chance to Make New Memories with Mom:

As the popular beach saying goes, “The tan lines will fade but the memories will last forever.” Vacations provide an opportunity for loved ones to gather together, giving you an opportunity to catch up, relax, and even reminisce about past celebrations and fun. While doing so, you’re also creating a fun and loving environment in which to not only celebrate the anchor of our lives—our Mothers—but a warm and safe place to create new loving and fond memories together. 

Here at Carolina Beach Realty, we are a family-owned and locally operated company. We pride ourselves on offering a selection of small oceanfront condos to large beachfront homes. Whatever your accommodation needs are, you can find the perfect vacation rental here. Happy Mother’s Day from all of us here at Carolina Beach Realty!
