Spring Break with South Beach Grill and Wrightsville Beach

Mar 29, 2021

By this time of year, we are all dreaming of the spring sunshine, salt air, and the roaring of ocean waves.

Luckily spring break is right around the corner, and for us, there’s no better destination than here on North Carolina’s beautiful coast.

The weather.

Wrightsville Beach during the spring features lots of sunshine, crisp mornings, cool evenings, and gorgeous afternoons. It’s ideal weather for soaking up some sun on the beach, taking a stroll downtown, or relaxing with a refreshing cocktail without having to deal with the heavy humidity that can accompany the summer season.

Sand and Surf.

Wrightsville Beach offers one of the most expansive and pristine beaches on the east coast. During most popular spring break times, the water may still be a bit chilly, but the soft white sand is the perfect spot to soak up all that warm sunshine!

In addition to soaking up the sun, there are many fun options for enjoying the beach, such as various selections of local tours and eco-adventures. Make a day of searching for shells, shark teeth, and beach glass.

Or stroll the beach and venture to the South End and explore the protected Research Reserve, a favorite among nature lovers, bird watchers, and sunset seekers.

You can also plan a day for exploring the area’s buffered inland waterways like the Black River or Town Creek with a kayak tour led by one of our local adventure companies.

Southern hospitality.

The southern coast is famous for its charm and welcoming environment. As a vacation town, Wrightsville Beach is a relaxing reprieve from the hustle and bustle of city life and busy schedules.

And while it still has plenty to offer in the way of business and attractions, you can be sure that you will be able to relax and take in the peaceful atmosphere on those days where a lazy afternoon is just what you need.

Delicious local eats.

When you’re on vacation, you more than likely want to take in as much local southern flavor as you can. Here in Wrightsville Beach, you won’t have to go far!

Indulge in one of our many fresh-to-table restaurant options, where dining outdoors with waterside ambiance always complements the unique and delectable offerings. Of course, our number one pick is South Beach Grill. With our ever-evolving chalkboard specials featuring the chef’s local catch, like fresh local Grouper or sea scallops, you really can’t go wrong.

Here at South Beach Grill, we are proud to showcase Southern-inspired dining with locally sourced items from both land and sea. Some of our favorite spring-inspired menu items include:
