Morehead City is a lovely place to live or visit any time of the year, but it particularly comes alive during the summer season. Outdoor activities abound, whether you want to play in the water or relax on dry land. New Visage has a few suggestions on how to make the most of a summer day alfresco in Morehead City.
Get Your History On
Get your fill of fresh air and a history lesson at the same time by visiting Fort Macon State Park. In addition to multiple trails and a variety of outdoor activities, this park features a restored Civil War-era fort and an unsurpassed coastal education center. The park also offers fishing year-round, as well as picnicking and swimming in designated areas. Guided tours of the fort are also available, allowing you to see original and replica cannons, as well as other equipment that was in use during Civil War times.
Do Some Fishing
There is plenty of opportunity to fish around Morehead City. Companies like Carolina Princess will take you out on the water on charters to find the best fishing spots. Options range from a half-day trip to a 24-hour fishing outing that will give you the best odds of making some good catches. The company also features cruises for special events that include trips to scenic Beaufort and Cape Lookout.
See the Underwater Sights
Diving is another popular activity around Morehead and there are a variety of options to choose from that allow you to get up close and personal with the marine life. Olympus Dive Center offers different diving adventures, including shipwreck and shark dives. The company boasts one of the best dive teams in North Carolina, giving visitors proper dive training as well as once-in-a-lifetime underwater adventures.
Take an Eco-Tour
Crystal Coast Ecotours offers half and full-day tours of both land and sea along the Crystal Coast. Longer tours often include a climb to the top of Cape Lookout Lighthouse. The captain of the tours, Captain Jess Hawkins, has years of experience working as a marine biologist and holds a Masters Captain’s License from the U.S. Coast Guard. Both of the boats used for the Crystal Coast tours hold six passengers and tours can be customized to the specific preferences of each group.
Relax on the Beach
If you are looking for a way to relax and unwind in Morehead City, Atlantic Beach is the place to go. While most beachgoers flock to the better-known Myrtle Beach, Atlantic Beach offers an experience that is decidedly quieter and more laid back. Fishing piers are available throughout and there is plenty of soft sand for kicking back and enjoying the sights and sounds of the coastline. With plenty of activities both on land and in the water, you are sure to find something for everyone at Atlantic Beach.
