If you're on a quest to find the perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day (February 14th) with your sweetie, Wrightsville Beach is definitely the place. As soon as you cross the drawbridge, it is obvious that the island location alone makes it a romantic choice.

Whether you want to mark the occasion in a big way or just let someone know you care, the natural beauty, activities, restaurants, and shops along Wrightsville Beach offer ways to express your love simply or extravagantly.

For the no-frills down to earth plan, consider one of these sure-fire winners:
  • Walk the loop around the park or head to the beach. Remember to pack a picnic!
  • Treat yourselves to a genuine Wrightsville Beach tee shirt, visor or hoodie at Redix, the island's go-to source for everything under the sun since 1969.
  • Go Play: do whatever you and your significant other enjoy - a few sets of tennis at the park, a tour around the island on beach cruisers, or an SUP tour. (See our earlier post on Staying Active on Wrightsville Beach).
  • DOn't forget to support local businesses!  Stop by Motts Channel Seafood and get the makings for the ultimate Valentine's dinner - oysters anyone? Don't forget the bubbly, it's right around the corner at Lighthouse Beer and Wine.
