Things to do with Kids

Here on the Crystal Coast, there’s no shortage of entertainment for the entire family to enjoy! From swimming and sandcastle building, sea animal exploration at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, history tours and fort adventures at Fort Macon State Park, to family game competitions at Mac Daddy’s, the region’s premier entertainment center, and everything else in between, we have fun for kids of any age.

For the adventurous, be certain to check out our many boat tours and cruises, to see the Wild Horses of Shackleford Banks, climb the Cape Lookout Lighthouse, enjoy playful dolphins or battle with a Pirate. Even the littlest ones can visit Sand Dollar Island for take home treasures, enjoy our many “city” parks for skateboarding and putt-putt, or fly colorful kites in the ocean breeze.

Our unique attractions offer laser tag, axe throwing (for the big kids), skateboarding and miniature golf. Where else can you horseback ride on the beach and learn to surf in the same day?

The Crystal Coast is a mecca for family vacations, a place where lasting memories are created and cherished.
