Pleasure Island, NC is where family memories are made. There are so many great ways to enjoy time together with the kids, you’ll never run out of fun things to do. When it’s time to venture off the beach, check out some of these ideas for activities sure to keep everyone in the family happy and entertained.
Once tummies are full, stretch your legs on one of the park’s nature trails. Both kids and grown-ups will delight in the wide variety of plant and animal life found on these easy-to-traverse-trails. The Flytrap Trail is a favorite as hikers try to spot the rare Venus flytrap and native orchids that grow wild here. Other trails meander along the waters of the Cape Fear River and Snow’s Cut and offer glimpses of shore birds and fiddler crabs scurrying along the mudflats.
Kayaking, fishing and camping are also available at Carolina Beach State Park. Be sure to stop in the Visitor’s Center where interactive exhibits provide a fun and educational look at the region’s diverse ecosystem. For more, visit http://www.ncparks.gov/Visit/parks/cabe/main.php
