A Local's Guide to Surf City Vacation Rentals

Located on Topsail Island, North Carolina, Surf city is a popular vacation destination. With stunning beaches, plenty of things to do and a range of surf condos, travelers return year after year to this getaway location.

One of the biggest draws to Surf City is of course Topsail beach, complete with stunning white sands and deep blue waters. A city landmark is the pier, and is a mecca for fishermen thanks to the range of facilities on offer. With lighting for night fishing, cleaning stations, bait supplies and a tackle shop, you won’t have to leave for the entire day! It is also a great place for a simple stroll, offering a unique perspective of the city and some great dining options.

One of the best ways to learn about the local sea life is at the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center. An army of volunteers work tirelessly to conserve and preserve all species of marine turtles. The center offers tours and activities where you can learn more about these stunning creatures. If you want the chance to see some wildlife in their natural habit, take a Tiki Tour. They offer a range of tours with knowledgeable guides, and can be a great way to see the coastline with spectacular ocean views the whole way.

Head downtown and you will find many shopping and dining opportunities. Your trip to the city would not be complete without a visit to the Topsail Trading company, who offer a huge range of toys, bags, jewellery, fudge and more. Getting a vacation home in the center of town, on Shore Drive, will mean that you will be in walking distance to all the major attractions, and you won’t have to travel far to be in the heart of Surf City. It is here that you will find the Seacoast Art Gallery, which features original works and reproductions by local artists, and includes paintings, pottery, glass, metal and crafts.

There are a huge range of beautifully-decorated rentals in Surf City. Whatever your preference, there is likely to be a beach home for you. Some rentals include outdoor showers, large living areas, flat screen TV’s, unobstructed ocean views and hot tubs, and many are also pet-friendly. For a family, a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom property could be a good choice, or for a couple, a small beach house could be a better option.
