How to Plan the Perfect Christmas Dinner at the Beach
Get uber organized, and start your holiday meal prep before you ever leave home. Plan your menu, and begin to compile a shopping list. You will want to make a paper or electronic file to include your menu, shopping list and recipes. If you plan to do a lot of traditional cooking and baking, you may want to consider bringing (from home), any herbs, spices, and hard to find items. This will save you valuable time and money!
Next, consider your holiday meal and the leftovers. This may be the year to divide the recipes in half! If not, then plan accordingly with plenty of zip top bags and storage containers. Keep in mind that your vacation rental will most likely NOT carry a full set of china with a gravy boat. But the basics will be covered, so keep that in mind. You may have to cook up some creativity, but your vacation rental in Topsail will still offer you a wonderful space to enjoy cooking and baking with your entire family.
There are several grocery stores near Topsail, like IGA, Walmart and Food Lion, where you can stock up on all your vacation food supplies!!
During the winter months, many of the local Topsail restaurant will be closed for the season. But let's face it, you aren't coming to Topsail for you holiday vacation because of the high-fashion dining. One of the most wonderful things about Topsail in December is it's slow pace and seclusion. You will feel like you have stepped into a different place in time, away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas. But don't worry, there are still plenty of dining options in the Topsail area...including the large port town of Wilmington, which is just a 1-hour drive away.
Awesome Holiday Activities That Everyone Will Enjoy
Topsail may be a quaint and quiet little beachfront town, but that doesn't mean that it's boring! There are so many great ways for you to enjoy quality time with your loved ones. Here is a list of a few ways that you can escape the everyday, and celebrate the season...Topsail style!
1. Star Gazing: With almost no light pollution, this is the perfect place to study the wonder of the night sky!
2. Shell Collecting: Winter months are a great time to find seashells. The fall storms face up many treasures, and there aren't many tourist...which mean shell jackpot for you.

4. Games: From a game of touch football, to board games in the living room...it's a great time to slow down and connect through a little friendly competition.
6. Head to the Gym: Head to the gymnasium in Surf City
