Do you have a planned family vacation in one of our Atlantic Beach vacation rentals this year? We understand that the weather on the coast can sometimes be a little unpredictable, but don’t allow the weather to put a kink in your plans. There are plenty of things that you and your family can do while you wait the rain our in the Atlantic Beach area. Let’s look below at a few places that we recommend you check out if it happens to be raining on your vacation.
North Carolina Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores is going to be the most known choice for families to head to on a rainy day. This is over in Pine Knoll Shores and is just a short drive from your vacation rental for you to enjoy. From being able to find different exhibits from the Loggerhead Odyssey featuring Caretta’s Cove to the Living Shipwreck that holds 306,000 gallons of saltwater habitat. There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy and explore. And if you happen to have little ones, there is a Little Minnows Play Area just for them where they can play dress-up, ride and climb on cushioned toys and relax in a little book area. So many different adventures can be made here by visiting whether there is sunshine or rain. Be sure to get there early especially if it’s supposed to rain all day because it does get crowded in there.
Tag You’re It
Battle Works is a fun and exciting adventure that you can enjoy with the kids. Here you will be able to play realistic tactical laser tag and is one of the best ones on the coast of the Carolinas. They have been open for 3 years in the area and is located in Morehead City which is just over the bridge from the beach. Please note that all players must be 12 years old or older and must be 54” tall to play. This can be a fun activity for the older kids and for the adults. Don’t miss this activity with the kids on your next vacation to Atlantic Beach.
Bowling Alley Fun
Mac Daddy’s is located in Cape Carteret and is one of the best places to go on a rainy day. Here you and your family are able to take advantage of a game or two of bowling. They just had their Grand Re-Opening on February 1st and has many things for the family to do. Mac Daddy’s not only has bowling lanes for the family to use, but also has a massive arcade that you too can enjoy. With a mix of modern and old school games, there is something that the whole family can enjoy. There is also a snack bar that you can grab a few things from such as Hotdogs, Cheeseburgers and Nachos. Let this become a part of your tradition for rainy days.
North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort is another amazing place you can head to on a rainy day. With many different exhibits that are always changing and different models and collections, the possibilities are endless. Admission to the museum is free of charge and it is fun for the whole family. Here you will be able to see many different artifacts from Blackbeard’s Ship, The Queen Ann’s Revenge. And after your lovely time there, then head over to waterfront for a bite to eat.

No matter what the weather is like these activities can be enjoyed for a few days while you are on vacation.
