Bald Head Island is a treasured spot here on the East Coast. Families come year after year to make new memories and that can be done rain or shine. We know the saying about April showers so before it starts sprinkling, you can plan out your Bald Head Island vacation with some backup ideas. The island has much to offer so no matter what time of year you come, you're sure to have a trip of a lifetime. Here are some of our favorite things when the weather is not as favorable.
No doubt the beauty of Bald Head Island will inspire some creativity. Our local art gallery is the perfect place to either immerse yourself into the world of art or unleash your own creative side. All About Art is open from Wednesday-Sunday until 5pm each day. Browse our fine art, jewelry, pottery, and more to find something special to bring home. Art classes are available during select times throughout the year for all ages and skill levels, including clay and paint classes. You can call 910-368-5336 for more information on classes and making appointments. Your crew will love making unique mementos to bring home from their vacation.
The sound of rain can be a wonderful soundtrack for relaxing. Grab a good book and sit out on your covered deck or lounge in a hammock. Bald Head Island vacation rentals offer spacious rooms to have the whole crew together. Why not host a movie day and watch all your family favorites? Get everyone together for some good laughs and enjoy homemade treats. Build a fort with the kids and huddle together for downtime while watching some classics.
Speaking of relaxing, you can't beat a spa day and a rainy forecast is the perfect time to book your session. Island Retreat Spa and Salon offers a number of treatments to get in some pampering on your trip. Enjoy a couples’ massage or facial or spring for a mani/pedi. If you can’t decide on one, you can get several with the Refresher Package! Use your time away to completely relax and be rejuvenated for your return home.
If you don’t feel like cooking, get a pizza from Maritime Market and have a pizza party! They even have lasagna or bbq trays.You can also get grocery delivery and save time shopping. Order all the fixins for an ice cream sundae bar or have a cookie baking contest. Vacations are for throwing out the rules, so embrace the chaos and enjoy the treats and company.
Enjoy the rain! Some of our favorite moments of the best movies are in the pouring rain. Let the kids play and dance in the rain. Or have dinner on the deck with some of your favorite tunes playing. Play some board games for some friendly competition. Enjoy the fact that there is nothing on the agenda and you can just soak it all in.
We know one thing is for sure, a rainy day will not put a damper on your vacation. It’ll be over before you know it but you’ll still have plenty of fun on this lovely island we call our little slice of paradise.
