Holden Beach Rainy Days

Rain, rain, go away; here to stay, but let’s still play? What to do on Holden Beach Rainy Days:

Everyone is excited for summer vacation, bags are all un-packed in the rental home, and everything is ready to hit the beach in the morning. Then, the next day brings cloudy skies and rain! Common thought is that a whole day is ruined. However, there are many rainy day activities in and around Holden Beach. From indoor activities right at the beach house, to a variety of dining options, and also many indoor activities within surrounding locations. For any age, any couple, and any family there are exciting Holden Beach things to do on rainy days.

Rainy Days At Home

The thought of a beach vacation with any time spent indoors, and not at the beach, seems contradictory. However, PROACTIVE properties offer a vacation destination right within themselves. With a little bit of flexible attitude, and maybe some creative thoughts, it will be easy to forget about the rain and simply enjoy your day.

Rainy Days And Games

Beach Vacation Home Board Games

With PROACTIVE you’ll be staying in a beautiful home that could be the perfect location for entertainment. Many of our homes offer Smart TV’s, Amazon Firesticks, or ROKU plug-ins. This technology makes a rainy day the perfect time for a mid-day movie. Head to the local store, grab some popcorn and snacks, and create your very own movie viewing experience! Not looking to just sit in front of the TV? Then maybe an interactive game is the best option. Some of our homes offer a variety of cards, board games, and more that are available for your use during your stay or you can bring your own just in case. No cards or games available? Try something like charades or Pictionary that don’t need anything extra to play!

Rainy Days And Cooking

Although there is plenty to keep you busy during the day, what if the rain does not stop? A rainy day is the perfect excuse to create an over-the-top family cooked meal. With plenty of local groceries and fresh seafood available, this could be a meal you remember cooking for a long time! Looking for fresh ingredients?
