Do you and your family have a family vacation planned for Holden Beach this 4th of July? If you do, then we need to tell you all about some fun activities you can do on your trip. While this year may seem different due to the recent events, there are still plenty of things you can do to celebrate with the family. Staying in one of our Holden Beach vacation rentals will allow you and your family to enjoy time together. Let’s look below at some of the things you can do on your 4th of July vacation.

Ring Toss on the Beach

Have you ever been to a carnival and played the game ring toss? If so, then this is a fun version of that classic game but only played on the beach. Grab a few plastic bottles and have the kids decorate each one. For the rings, you can grab some of the diving rings that you will find the pool toy section and use them. Then bury the bottles in the sand a little bit and see who can get the most rings on the cylinders. This game is best played with the family and is a great way to make new memories on this 4th of July!

4th of July Bake-Off with the Family

Another high activity that your family can do on your 4th of July vacation is to have a bake-off against each other. While younger children may not be able to cook, they can still make something they love. It could be candy kabobs, rice Krispy treats (with adult help), or Jell-O. For the adults, they could have a bake-off with who has the best-baked beans or who has the best-pulled pork or chili. The possibilities are endless, and we promise that this could be one of the best activities this holiday.

Spend the Day on the Beach

While you are on vacation this 4th of July, spend the day or two on the beach. Bring the beach chairs, umbrella, towels or blankets, sunscreen, and beach toys. Let the kids play in the sand by building sandcastles or burying each other in the sand. Make a family picnic and have lunch on the sand. Bring a book or your reading device and read away as you hear the kids in the background playing. In the evening, go for a walk and collect as many seashells as you can. Spending time together on the beach is what many families love to do every summer!

While there are many other things you can do this 4th of July, these are a few things we wanted to mention. If you haven’t booked your family vacation to stay in one of our Holden Beach vacation rentals, now is the time. We look forward to seeing your family as you help us celebrate this great nation together!
