Before the hustle and bustle of the school year returns, escape to enjoy serenity by the sea in Kure Beach! Parents can start their day with a little Zen on the sand with Kure Beach Yoga’s Sunrise Yoga classes. Then, spend your day relaxing on miles of unspoiled shoreline at Fort Fisher State Recreation Area. Head to Ocean Front Park & Pavilion where the little ones can frolic on the playground while the adults enjoy scenic views and ocean breezes on a swing along the boardwalk. Cast a line from the century-old fishing pier and see who can reel in the biggest catch or explore aquatic life at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher. Kure Beach is the perfect last-minute summer escape.

Fort Fisher Air Force Recreation Area has a new name: Blakeslee Air Force Recreation Area. The newly renamed area will be bringing back a local-favorite event: Free Friday Summer Lawn Concerts. There will be two free concerts per month beginning Aug. 11 and ending Oct. 27.
