For many, vacation is a time to relax and unwind. For others, the grind doesn’t stop. If you’re one of those folks, who many may call “crazy” for your dedication to fitness, then your vacation will probably also include getting active. With the most beautiful location, getting blood pumping can be fun!

Walk/run along the beach or on one of our gorgeous nature trails.

Make a splash! Swim and play in the ocean/pool.

Play volleyball, soccer, Spikeball, Can Jam, and other fun games on the beach.

Kayaking is an excellent way to not only get out some energy, but also to view amazing wildlife and scenery.

Surf or SUP! Surfing is great exercise, many local businesses offer rentals and classes. Check out FarmDog or Kitty Hawk Surf Shop, for example.

Play tennis at one of the local courts.
