Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to enjoy your family vacation! Often, it seems like when it comes to trips, moms get the short end of the stick. They’re so busy planning and scheduling that they don’t get to enjoy themselves. Well, we say “no more!” We’re putting the idea of moms working on vacation in time-out. Instead, use our tips and tricks to plan mom’s getaway to Emerald Isle.
Our Favorite Things to Do: Mom’s Getaway to Emerald Isle Edition
Lay Back on the Beach
Let’s start with the obvious: Emerald Isle is home to the best beaches in North Carolina, and you’ll want to take advantage of them while on your trip. When you check in, you’ll receive a handy guide on fun family-friendly activities to do on the beach, including ones just for kids. Send them on our scavenger hunt for shells and other fun beach-themed items while you relax on a towel or read a book under the shade of an umbrella.
If you’re searching for peace and quiet during your stay, keeping active is one way to achieve it. After all, tired children (and tired spouses, for that matter) are quiet children (and spouses). Get some exercise and see the sights of Emerald at the same time when you head out on a kayaking tour of Bogue Inlet. Call Hot Wax Surf & Paddle Sports to rent a kayak as part of their self-guided package. They’ll handle delivery to and from your vacation rental, so you won’t have to worry about a thing!
Enjoy a Spa Day
A relaxing vacation isn’t complete without a spa day, and Emerald Isle Massage is the perfect option! You can enjoy a luxurious massage in the comfort of your Spinnaker’s Reach vacation home. Rita, the owner, offers soothing therapeutic, relaxing Swedish, and intense deep tissue massage. Her rates are $50 for a 30-minute session, $75 for 60 minutes, and $100 for 90 minutes.
Get a Drink
Treat yourself to a cocktail, glass of wine, or frosty mug of beer during your next getaway! One of the best places to get a craft beer is Goose Creek Growler’s taproom in Emerald Isle. You’ll find something to suit your preferences, including plenty of local options. Kathryn’s Bistro and Martini Bar is a fabulous choice if you’re in the mood for a cocktail and dessert. You can even get a drink that doubles as a dessert if you order their key lime pie or dark chocolate martini. Finally, the Emerald Isle Wine Market carries a wide selection of boutique wines that are sure to please any palate.
