Posted On Monday, May 02, 2016
Any day on Topsail Island is a great one, right? We totally agree. It's even better when you can spend some extended down time with your toes in the sand and the sun on your shoulders. Memorial Day weekend and the surrounding holiday offer a chance to do just that. Take full advantage!
So what are best ways to spend your Memorial Day on Topsail Island? Let us give you a few of our recommendations.
At the BeachIt goes without saying and, well, we've already mentioned it but the beach is one of the best ways to spend your Memorial Day. It's the start of summer and the beach season, so it just makes sense. Won't you join us?
On the WaterCool down on a hot day with some time on the water, or even in it. Whatever method you choose, on-the-water adventures abound here on our island. Kayak the sound, try kitesurfing, take a surf lesson, go on a deep-sea fishing excursion, enjoy a dinner and sightseeing cruise on our local waters, or choose whatever you so desire. Just get out there!
Did you catch our guest blog post by Tom's Teeth about Hunting for Shark Teeth on Topsail Island? It was very informative and explained why it's such a popular activity here. You need to try it if you haven't and see what beach treasures you find along the way. Highly recommend!

Out on the Town
Explore the Topsail Island towns of North Topsail Beach, Surf City and Topsail Beach and have the quintessential beach experience each and every day you're here. Visit our seaside shops, dine in our local restaurants, try a new watering hole, or better yet do all of the above. You are only limited to your imagination and the island is your oyster, as they say.
During a Day TripJacksonville and Wilmington, North Carolina, are both interesting places rich with a history each their own, but add in the many military and Memorial Day activities to be had—and you're well on your way to a wonderful journey through history past and the present day times unique to this our area. Each of the cities is just under an hour's drive from Topsail, so both make for easy day trips. High on that list of things to see would be the USS North Carolina battleship in Wilmington. It's awesome and a pretty appropriate destination for this time of the year.
In the Comfort of Your Beach Vacation Rental
You are on vacation, right? Savor every second! Whatever you want to do, do it. Relax? Go on adventures? Catch up on your favorite read? Stare at the undulating surf? That's for you to decide. Just know that your Topsail Island vacation rental can be customized to suit your needs and wants with all of the amenities that matter most to you.
With RemembranceIt wouldn't really be Memorial Day without taking time out to reflect upon, honor and remember the fallen heroes that sacrificed for you, for me and for our country. Make it a meaningful one and of course and enjoyable one. If you see someone who is currently serving or has served in the military, go ahead and give them a quick thank you.
Also take the time to learn more about the history of Topsail Island itself and the many roles its played in our nation over time. Lots to learn!
