Plan Activities Together
You don't have to spend a ton of money to enjoy a few romantic activities. After all, time with your loved one is the most special gift! If you are looking for some fun and romantic ideas on how to spend time together during your romantic Topsail Island getaway, we have a few suggestions below.
Enjoy a Romantic Picnic
There is just something romantic about a picnic. Maybe it's the fact that it reminds us of a slower time when there were fewer distractions. No cell phones or emails pinging and dinging in the background. In fact, for this one, you have to leave the cell phones at home. Don’t worry if you can’t cook, pack a great takeout meal from one of our delicious local restaurants! Find the perfect quiet spot on the beach and enjoy the sound of the waves and each other’s company.
Watch the Sunset Together
Sunsets and romance go together like peanut butter and jelly. Sunsets on Topsail Island are a magical moment each day. There are a lot of great places to watch the sunset with your loved one. Of course, there is the beach which is perhaps the most common place to see the sunset. However, Soundside Park offers probably the best view on the island. We mentioned earlier that a picnic is a romantic way to celebrate Valentine's Day, combine the sunset with your picnic and create a golden memory you'll cherish forever.
Talk a Moonlit Walk Together
Van Morrison is famous for his lyrics about a "marvelous night for a moon dance" and while we know he wasn't writing about a walk along Topsail Island, we are sure he would find it just as inspiring. This is a great activity as it makes you slow down, appreciate the time you have together, and best of all, it costs nothing. And after all, isn't it the little moments that are the truly special ones? On February 14th take some time and hit the beach hand in hand while walking under a star-filled North Carolina sky. You'll remember this long after the flowers have wilted and the chocolates are gone. Here is a great resource with all the local beach access points.
Prepare a Romantic Dinner
Get a great bottle of wine, find the perfect recipe, gather up some fresh ingredients, and cook a romantic dinner together! There is something intimate about cooking together. It takes longer and forces you to work together. You have time to laugh and talk and you'll be amazed how this simple act brings you together. Make it a special meal and bring in some of each other’s favorite dishes and flavors. Don’t forget the chocolate covered strawberries for dessert!
Book a Couples Tee-Time
Whether you are experienced golfers or are looking to start a new hobby together, golf is a wonderful way to spend a day as a couple! Golf is the perfect couple’s getaway. A beautiful setting, serenity, and no distractions. Just you and your loved one on the course. Start the day off with a lesson or maybe try the driving range. Remember, today isn't the day to worry about the score. In fact, don't even take a scorecard on this round, just have fun! There are several beautiful courses of all levels in the Topsail Island area.
Try Something New
Few things bring a couple together like trying new things. Each of you picks something that you have always wanted to do. It can be anything but remember you’re bringing your partner along. Guys, you may be learning how to knit and ladies you may be learning to fly fish, but who cares- just enjoy the time together! You’ll feel closer at the end of the activity, we promise! Need a few ideas? How about stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, or yoga.
Enjoying Topsail Island in the winter months is a special experience.
