FATHERS DAY WEEKEND

It’s already the middle of 2016. The year has flown by like a flock of ibis flies over the islands. Fathers Day weekend is nearly here and it is expected to be a beautiful one. Why not plan to get dad outside where you can all enjoy it together? There is so much beauty in Brunswick County, NC – don’t miss it. Spend the day at the beach. Have a picnic by a lake – maybe in Boiling Spring Lakes, NC or at Lake Waccamaw. Rent kayaks and head to one of the many bodies of water for peaceful water gliding.

Load up your bicycles – or rent some – and head north a bit to Town Creek, NC where you can ride the bicycle trails at Brunswick Nature Park, with more than 900 acres to explore. Take a fishing excursion and grill your catch for an outdoor dinner. Take dad scuba diving and discover the wonders beneath the waters. Take dad to dinner at one of the many great restaurants in Brunswick County, NC. Eat at one of them that has music on the weekends and dance the night away. Walk hand in hand on the beach at sunrise. Walk hand in hand on the beach at sunset. Simple pleasures are the best.
