Activities For The Summer

A...is for Activities!

I am (once again) going to try to blog through the alphabet. I tried it a while back, but didn't make it very far. This time, I am going to take the time and write up the post ahead of time and try to get all the way to z.

 My kids like to be on the go instead of staying around the house all day during our summer break. Our number one activity during the summer is visiting the beach. We only live 45 minutes away from the beach, so it makes it easy to go for the day.

Another favorite thing my kids like to do is visit the different play parks in the area and just play. Although as my boys (12 and 10) get older, their interest in going to a playground is getting lower.

I've come up with a list of some activities that I hope to accomplish during our time off of school during June and July.

NC Blueberry Festival in Burgaw. We have attended this festival for the past 4 years and the kids love looking at the old cars and trucks at the car show. We also buy some non-alcoholic blueberry cider each year.

Cheap summer movies for the kids. I am going to let them choose one or two movies that they would like to see.

Visit nearby state parks and do some hiking. Visit Fort Macon in Atlantic Beach and Fort Fisher in Wilmington.

Soundside Park on Topsail Island usually has free movies on Saturday evenings in the summer.

We also love to go to the local spray park when we can't get to the beach. We are hoping to also make it to our local water park sometime this summer.

We like to go to the different museums in the area during the summer. One of our favorites is in Beaufort- The Maritime Museum.

These activities will keep us busy throughout the summer. There is so much fun and free things to do in Eastern North Carolina which is great when you are on a budget.


  1. That sounds like fun summer activities.

  2. I love blueberries, thanks for letting me know about the festival

  3. Some of these are not far from us - thanks for sharing them. Thinking of looking into a few to do!

  4. What a great summer you all have planned.
    Blessings, Dawn

  5. That is one thing I want to do with the kids this summer is to pick blueberries. We may have to go to Upper Michigan to do it but it will be well worth it. We are saving the Maritime Museum for a rainy day.

  6. Cheap summer movies, state parks, and museums.

    Sounds like a great summer!

    Thanks for linking up with me. You can do this :)
