2. Learn How to Surf and SUP
Some of our favorite 30A family activities are the Surf and Stand Up Paddle Camps. The three-hour Surf Camp teaches your child the basics of surfing and gives them the tools to shred the waves. You can also head over to Eastern Lake for the Kid’s SUP Camp. Your kids will make memories that last a lifetime while paddling through 30A’s coastal dune lakes. Or, take the whole family out on a guided paddleboarding excursion on Western Lake. It’s one of the most scenic areas on 30A.
3. Go Off-Roading on Grayton Beach
What could be more thrilling than an off-roading adventure on the beach? If you really want to get your heart racing, head over to Grayton Beach and go four-wheeling together. It’s the only beach on 30A where you can take a 4-wheel drive out onto the sand. Just make sure you have the proper permit before you go!
4. Explore the Hiking and Biking Trails
If your family likes to stay active, spend a day biking along the Timpoochee Trail. This 18.6-mile paved pathway winds past the dune lakes, state parks, and beach neighborhoods along 30A. It’s a great way to exercise while taking in the picturesque views. We also recommend visiting the Topsail Hill Preserve. While you explore miles of incredible hiking trails, keep an eye out for wildlife!
