One thing about vacationing at the beach every year is there is bound to be at least one rainy day. Holden Beach is an excellent place to vacation, but yes, rain may happen on some afternoons. Staying in one of our Holden Beach vacation rentals will allow you and your family to enjoy your vacation. Look below at three activities you can do on the next rainy day on Holden Beach.

Play Board Games

Family playing board game at home. Kids play strategic game. Little boy throwing dice. Fun indoor activity for summer vacation. Siblings bond. Educational toys. Friends enjoy game night.

One way to help pass the time when it’s raining on vacation is to play a friendly board game. Bring a game or two from home that may be your favorite or pick one up from a local store. While it may be raining outside, you may forget about going back out after all the fun you’ll have. Our favorite games are Life, Candyland, Snakes & Ladders, and Monopoly. Just have a good time together, making new memories while on vacation.

Make Popcorn & Watch a Movie

Another fun thing you can do while in your vacation rental is make popcorn and watch a movie. If you have younger kids, let them pick out one of their favorite movies and even some snacks from the pantry. Pop some popcorn in the microwave or stovetop for a little more fun. Then just turn the lights down low and enjoy watching a movie together as a family. Think of it like your own little movie theater at the beach!

If your family is a little competitive, why not head to the local bowling alley in Shallotte. Play a game or two of bowling, but they also have a bounce house, an arcade & even laser tag. If you have enough in your family, maybe grab two lanes next to each other and have a friendly game against parents and kids. Don’t worry about getting hungry, as they also have food and drinks available on site. Who will win in your family?

You can do many other activities on the next rainy day, but we had to share these with you. If you haven’t booked your next stay in one of our Holden Beach vacation rentals, now is the time. We can’t wait to hear which activity was your favorite on the next rainy day!
