Wrightsville Beach Parks and Rec Programs for the Winter

Winter may be the off-season for Wrightsville Beach, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do! Once the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler, the crowds at Wrightsville Beach thin out and locals enjoy many off-season activities. If you're not from the area but would like to visit, consider coming to town between the months of November - February to get a feel for how the locals live in the off-season and enjoy some unique winter beach festivities!

Here's a look at a few year-round programs, courtesy of the Wrightsville Beach Parks and Recreation Department:

This program will help you improve strength and endurance both aerobically and anaerobically with a wide variety of training techniques. Classes meet every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9-10 a.m.

Zumba - What began as a Latin-inspired dance fitness routine has effectively grown into a wildly popular workout for ladies (and gentlemen, too) from around the world. Come see what Zumba is all about Tuesday mornings from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
