We are so lucky to have such a great community here in Surf City with so many fun things to do – like going to our amazing beach! With summer approaching, we wanted to share some of our other favorite ideas for fun family activities.
Go for a bike ride together! Or go paddleboarding, or kayaking. Or go for an adventure and do something you’ve never done before. We recommend Herring’s Outdoor Sports for outdoor equipment rentals. It’s only $10 to rent a bike for 4 hours! See Bicycle and Beach rentals. Single kayaks are $30 for 1 hour, $50 for 4 hours. Double kayaks are $60 for 1 hour, $80 for 4 hours. Paddle boards are $30 for 1 hour, $50 for 4 hours. See Kayak and Paddle Board rentals.
Herring’s is a local family-run business. It started in 1962 as a bait and tackle shop and has grown as it has been passed down through the generations. We love supporting our local family businesses! (By the way, did you know that it’s National Small Business Week?) And who doesn’t love a good adventure?
Another fun idea: go for a picnic at Soundside Park and enjoy the beautiful views! It’s right next door to us, so you can stop by and grab some treats. (May we suggest: chocolate covered pretzels and bubble teas. Yum!)
These ideas would be great for Mother’s Day, if the weather is nice! Let’s hope the approaching storm decides to turn off course!
