Things to do

Attractions near Ocean Isle Beach vacation rentals

Though most people visit Ocean Isle Beach with the plan to spend most of their time outdoors, there are a few museums for you and the kids to enjoy, too. Make sure to hit up the Museum of Coastal Carolina, a natural history museum exploring the region's past, and including a planetarium and live sea animals enclosed in a touch tank. If the planetarium at the museum only tickled a bit of your stargazing fancy, head to the Ingram Planetarium, which, like the museum, is also managed by the Ocean Isle Museum Foundation.


Activities near Ocean Isle Beach vacation homes

Ocean Isle Beach is one part of 58 acres of recreational area. When you're not swimming, surfing, and sunbathing on the beach, spend your days at the ballparks, on the tennis courts, or enjoying the events and concerts held at the festival grounds and in the amphitheater. There are biking trails ensuring you can explore the area easily on two wheels, but with a car, you can easily access even more of the great outdoors at Myrtle Beach State Park, or go fishing from the Surfside Beach and Pier.

Local weather for your stay in Ocean Isle Beach vacation homes

Thanks to its southern climate, booking an Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental is an excellent idea for most of the year. Late March through early June offers sunny and warm days, perfect for sunbathing and swimming. July and August tend to be extremely hot and humid, so if you head down with the rest of the summer vacationers, bring your SPF!
