Spending time in Holden Beach is fun for travelers year-round. Those heading here over Thanksgiving will find there’s even more to enjoy! The following Thanksgiving guide to Holden Beach is a great place to start when you’re looking to elevate your holiday away.
Bundle Up and Enjoy a Stroll Along the Sand
The average temperature across Holden Beach in November typically ranges from lows in the 40s at night to middle-of-the-day temperatures hovering in the mid-60s. While these numbers might not inspire visitors to jump in the water during their Thanksgiving Day adventures, it’s the perfect temperature to make the most of a stroll along the sand! Holden Beach hosts incredible scenery for holiday travelers to enjoy and a walk along the beach is a great way to take it all in. Not to mention what an enjoyable way it is to work off those holiday meal calories! Along the way, you’ll likely encounter a variety of shore birds to observe as well as seashells that are worth picking up as long as there aren’t any residents that still remain within.
Check Out the Holiday Movies
A favorite tradition for many families around Thanksgiving is to get together and make the most of a movie afternoon or night. Traveling to Holden Beach over the holiday can include this fun activity too! Nearby Southport is home to Surf Cinemas on Long Beach Road SE. This is a great stop for those who are excited to check out the latest releases while enjoying comfy seating and access to great concessions too. Tickets can be purchased online or at the theatre depending on preference.
Super Saturday at the Museum of Coastal Carolina
Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful and focus on moments enjoyed alongside family and friends. It also tends to be a holiday that lends itself to thoughts of Christmas fun to come! If you’re looking to embrace the greater holiday spirit this Thanksgiving and you find yourself in Holden Beach, make sure to head over to the Museum of Coastal Carolina on November 26th. Starting at 3:00 pm, the Ocean Isle Property Owners Association will be hosting their annual Super Saturday event at the museum that also includes their Christmas Parade!
