Father’s Day is coming up this June. Show Dad how much you appreciate him by planning an epic beach getaway. Enjoy hanging out with Dad on the beach, relaxing, connecting, and experiencing everything our area has to offer. We’ve put together a fun list of things to experience while you’re here. Check them out below.
Carolina and Kure Beaches are great places for inshore and offshore fishing! A day on the water with Dad will be one you both will remember for many years to come. We’ve compiled a list of some of the top-rated charter services in the area. Check them out here.
Take a break from the beach and head to one of our local arcades. Challenge Dad to a game, and the loser buys dinner! Arcade games are a way to let loose and enjoy fun and laughter. It will be a great way to connect with Dad on your Father’s Day trip.
Locally, we have the Carolina Beach Arcade located right on the boardwalk. There are even game rooms at both of the piers to enjoy. Is Dad a vintage game nerd? Check out Retroscape, located in Wilmington, N.C. It is a vintage video game lounge where you can enjoy game systems from the 1970s to the early 2000s.
The Tony Silvagni Surf School is your one-stop-shop for adventure on the water in Carolina Beach. Owned by professional surfer Tony Silvagni, he has put together a great team of instructors. Their primary focus for surfing instruction is safety in the water while having the best time possible! Sign Dad up for surfboard lessons or paddleboard lessons. You can even rent beach gear from the surf school, so you and Dad can chill out on the beach after his lessons. Is Dad already a watersports pro? You can also rent gear like surfboards, paddleboards, kayaks, skimboards, etc. Adventure awaits!
After a long day of bonding with Dad, end the day with a great meal. Beach vacations are never complete without a seafood dinner. Our area has no shortage of places that Dad will enjoy.
We recommend stopping by the Shuckin’ Shack in Carolina Beach and ordering one of their delicious family-style meals. Each family-style meal is served with tons of great seafood like a dozen oysters, clams, and shrimp, snow crab legs. There are also tons of great fixings included, so be sure to check out the menu.
Would you prefer to enjoy dinner at your vacation rental? We recommend picking up a steam pot from the Cape Fear Boil Company. At home, you’ll need a steam pot and either beer or water. Add your steam pot ingredients to your pot and liquid of choice. In under 30 minutes, you’ll be enjoying your very own seafood boil right at home. Detailed instructions are provided with each boil.
Reserve a tee time for Dad at the Beau Rivage golf course. Tucked between Cape Fear and the Atlantic ocean, this 18-hole course will impress any Dad who enjoys golfing. The rolling hills, willowy pines, and beautiful lakes provide a unique golf experience. It is ranked among the finest courses on the east coast.
If your Dad enjoys a delicious beer after being on the beach all day, we have the perfect places in town to take him! Some of our office favorites are Good Hops Brewing, The Fat Pelican, and Island Beverage. Between their wide selection of craft beer, their comfortable setting, and their disc golf course, Good Hops Brewing is a haven for beer lovers. The Fat Pelican is the “diviest dive bar that ever dived.” There’s an 18-wheeler packed with hundreds of different choices of beer. Dad will love the experience! Island Beverage boasts the best selection of wine and beer on Carolina Beach. We think you and Dad should stop by and test their claim. We think you’ll enjoy it.
Surprise Dad with the getaway he deserves by booking a vacation to Pleasure Island. It will be a great way to connect with your Dad. Reminisce with him about the past and create new beach vacation memories. At Carolina Beach Realty, we offer a large selection of accommodations, including oceanfront rentals, homes with a private pool, and pet-friendly vacations. We look forward to welcoming your dad to the beach!
