As the summer holidays roll in, Holden Beach comes alive offering ways to celebrate that always include a day at the beach and this Holden Beach 4th of July celebration will be no different. Providing sunny days, exciting events, and, when you choose one of our PROACTIVE Vacations holiday hideaways, all the comfort your tired body can handle! Independence Day is a special one here in the South, especially with North Carolina being not just one of the original 13 colonies (number 11 to be exact!) but also being the first state that instructed their delegates to vote for independence! You might even go as far as to say that without North Carolina, we may have been one of the countries whose symbol was embroidered on the dress Kate wore to the coronation this year! In any case, 4th of July is very important to us here in Holden Beach and as you live the good life, perhaps even enjoying cake in our nation’s honor, coming home to the comforts and luxuries found in our Holden Beach havens is destined to make this getaway one you will wish could go on forever!
Fill Up for Fun
As you go about your day of patriotic celebrations, you’re going to need your energy and even though our PROACTIVE Vacations escapes offer fully equipped kitchens, on this bright and beautiful day you are going to want to fill your empty tanks with an all-American breakfast at The Scoop! Located at 3425 Holden Beach Road and offering the most amazing selection of waffles, a red, white, and blue breakfast is destined to be your second favorite thing you purchase from Scoops! Try their red velvet waffles stuffed with white chocolate chips and order a side of blueberries, or their blueberry waffles with whipped cream and a side of strawberry sauce! Also offering classic egg breakfasts for those who need a little extra dose of protein, be sure to come back later in the day for a scoop (or three!) of ice cream! Nothing is more traditional than an ice cream cone enjoyed on a hot summer’s day and Scoops has all the flavors that will make your taste buds sing!
Red, White, and Beach!
A day at the beach is one of those all-American family traditions, making 4th of July the perfect time to enjoy and our beaches, offering golden sands, turquoise waters, and a lifetime’s supply of serenity and fun! Don your favorite red, white, and blue swim wear, grab some beach gear and stake your claim on a piece of the beach; what you do from there is all on you! Building sandcastles with your kids, walking along shore’s edge and peeking at the cottages that are perched higher up, even if you just read, nap, and sing along to the music playing in your ear buds; there is no wrong way to celebrate the 4th at the beaches of Holden Beach!
Red, White, and BOOM!
While there is no formal fireworks display in Holden Beach and there will probably be no unsanctioned displays, there are plenty of shows going on in the towns surrounding us, so why not take a small road trip and finish up your day with a bang? In past years, the Ocean Isle Beach Pier has been the spot for red, white, and boom! Oak Island has historically offered a great 4th of July show and is just over 21 miles away, giving our vacationing guests multiple opportunities to enjoy the show!
