Are you and your family looking to take a vacation this February to Chincoteague Island? Escaping from real life and heading to the beach can cheer up the family by exploring the island a little. Staying in one of our Seaside Vacations rental homes will keep you and your family close to the shore and where you can enjoy spending your time together. Let’s look below at what you and your family can do while you are on vacation to Chincoteague Island.
National Wildlife Refuge
Are you a family who loves nature and wildlife? If the answer is yes, then head on over to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge for the day. There is plenty of things that you and family can do while visiting such as the trails, the Herbert H. Bateman Educational Center and the Assateague Lighthouse. There is also a recreational beach there as well and during the summer many beach loving families can be found here. If you decide to hike the trails though be sure to bring bug spray because there are ticks and other creepy crawling bugs out there. The Educational Center is open every day from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and there is something for everyone to enjoy.
While you are over at the National Wildlife Refuge checking
out the Assateague Island Lighthouse, you may be able to get a quick glimpse of
the “Chincoteague” ponies. They are also known as the “Saltwater Cowboys” and
they can be seen year-round. Be sure to keep your distance from the horses as
they are wild, and they aren’t like the horses you may find elsewhere. If you
do happen to see one and it comes close, do not feed the horse either. Just sit
back and watch them in their natural habitat and take photos of them for the
family to remember that moment.
While there are many other things that you can do while you are on vacation to Chincoteague Island this February, these are the ones we wanted to share with you. If you haven’t booked your next vacation to stay with us at Seaside Vacations, now is the time. We can’t wait to see you and your family on your next adventure to the island!
Are you looking for family-friendly activities that you can enjoy on the beach? If the answer is yes, then we must tell you about several activities that are good for the entire family. Staying in one of our Ocean City vacation rentals will keep you and your family close to where the fun is at. Let’s look at a few of the family-friendly activities that you can do on your next family vacation.
Just like the classic game musical chairs, this game is easily
played on the beach. Everyone in the family will enjoy playing this game on the
beach. Bring a small radio or speakers with you so you can jam to the tunes. Before
you head to the beach for the day make sure that you have enough beach towels
for everyone in the family. Once you are settled on the beach, lay the towels on
the sand to make a circle and it’s time to play musical towels. What a great
activity for the whole family to enjoy and have a good time!
Fly a Kite
Flying a kite while you are on vacation to the beach is one
of the most family-friendly activities. As a child, do you have memories of flying
a kite while running down the beach at Ocean City? For many families, this is a
classic beach activity that everyone in the family can have fun with. It doesn’t
matter where you got your kite from, it’s about how much fun you are having
together. All you need is a kite, wind and someone to run down the beach to get
the kite in the air. Not only are you spending time with your family, but you
are also getting a little exercise in too.
Beach Mini Golf
Playing mini golf at the beach is always fun, but when it’s played
by the ocean it becomes even more fun. Building your very own mini golf course
is just what the family can do on a hot day by the ocean. Head over to a local
dollar store to pick up the golf club sets and purchase enough balls for
everyone. Then when you are on the beach you and your family can design their
own course to play through. Use driftwood that you found on the beach to mark
each hole and play golf. Spending as much time together while you are on
vacation is what every family wants.
Playing any kind of game on the beach is always fun but
playing soccer can be even more fun. Bring a soccer ball with you on your next
trip to Ocean City and have a small game on the sand. You can either break up
into different teams or just make a circle to pass the ball back and forth.
This activity is great to play as a family because it’s also a great teamwork
There are many other activities that your family can do while on vacation, but we thought you’d enjoy these. If you still haven’t made your reservations to stay in one of our Ocean City vacation rentals, now is the time. We hope to see you and the family as you make new memories on your next trip!
