Do you and your family have a vacation planned to visit Atlantic Beach this summer? If you do, then we need to tell you about a few different outdoor activities in the area. Doing new things on your vacation can be fun for everyone especially if they are within a driving distance of your Atlantic Beach vacation rental. Let’s look below at what some of the activities that your family can experience on your vacation this summer.
Elliott Coues Nature Trail
For families who love to spend as much time outdoors as they can, then heading over to the Elliott Coues Nature Trail is for you. This is a 3.2-mile trail that is a newer walking trail that can be perfect for those who are looking for a hike or can ride your bikes on. Located at the North end of Fort Macon is where you will find this trail. Your family will be able to see different wildlife so be sure to bring a camera along with you and you can see nature too. The trail can be accessed by either the Fort Macon parking lot or the Beach Access Parking lot. Be sure to bring sunscreen, hats and even bug spray along with your ice-cold water as you explore nature together on this trail.
Rachel Carson Reserve
Do you have someone in the family who loves horses? Head over to the Rachel Carson Reserve where you and the family can view a coastal nature reserve. Located in Beaufort you will find several different islands you can explore as well as salt marshes and wild horses. Be sure to bring along with you plenty of sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera. You don’t want to miss the wildlife you will be able to see and the natural beauty of the reserve. Enjoy the day with the family as you explore the Rachel Carson Reserve together!
Another fun activity that you can do as a family is heading over to Beaufort and checking out Beaufort Paddle. Some of the things that you can do are rent a kayak whether it’s a single or tandem, Stand Up Paddleboards and do a tour. The tours are where you’ll be able to see some of the local outdoor activities by kayak or paddle boarding only. The length of the tours is around 2 hours long and you’ll be able to see Historic Old Towne Beaufort Waterfront, Bird Shoals and the Rachel Carson Reserve. You may even get to see a glimpse of a dolphin frolicking in the water. Enjoy this time with the family and get out and be adventurous together.
