How to Have the Best Labor Day Ever in Emerald Isle


How can it be? The Labor Day holiday is almost upon us this year. Have you made your plans? We hope you're getting to spend some time with us here in Emerald Isle, NC. If you are, make sure you put these local recommendations on your Labor Day itinerary. We want you to have the best Labor Day ever, so we're happy to help. 

Of course, you can spend it as you wish and you won't run out of things to do whether you prefer to go shopping, dine out, explore our local culture and history, embark on some on-the-water adventures or whatever your little heart desires. We just want to make a few additional suggestions that we'll hope you'll consider. 


Go to the beach, of course.

With 12.5 miles of beautiful beaches, sparkling clear Atlantic waters and coastal Carolina's natural barrier island beauty surrounding you, make sure you get plenty of beach time in before summer draws to a close. Before the kids get back into the routine of school, sports and the busyness of life, get away from it all and sink your toes in the sand during your Emerald Isle beach vacation.
With abundant beach accesses and parks, Emerald Isle offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy our best asset. Regular life will resume soon enough, so immerse yourself in beach life for a while and soak up every sunny, sandy, salty moment of it. 


Relax in your Emerald Isle rental.

Your Emerald Isle rental offers you an air-conditioned oasis after long days in the sun, sand and surf. Make the most of your Emerald Isle vacation rental and its fabulous amenities while you have them. Vacation time is meant to have some downtime where you can catch up on your rest and relaxation. Don't overdo it by overbooking your activities. You deserve a break. Grab a good read, pour yourself a drink, take a nap or do all of the above. It's your vacation!

Don't overlook this important aspect of your time away. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you.


Go fishing and have some reel fun. 

You're on the coast, so fishing is a family-friendly activity that everyone can try their hand it. Whether you cast a line from the pier, from the beach or off a boat, you'll have plenty of ways to get your fishing fix.

Enjoy a free outdoor concert.

We love the free outdoor music concerts that can be found in Emerald Isle and throughout the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. Get out on a coastal evening under the stars and enjoy the enchanting sounds of our local and regional performers in a variety of musical styles and genres.

The Labor Day holiday weekend offers a couple of chances to catch some of your favorite tunes. SwanFest happens in nearby Swansboro-by-the-Sea and has Nashville, Tennessee's own Chris Cavanaugh on stage starting at 6:30p.m. on Sunday, September 4. Drive over the bridge and into downtown Morehead City to Jaycee Park on Saturday, September 3 for the Concert in the Park series which wraps up with its last performance by the Carolina Beach Club starting at 7p.m. Both outdoor concerts are free of charge. Bring your family, bring your friends. 


Savor the spirit of summer. 

Sometimes it's hard to see summer end as the Labor Day holiday approaches. Don't worry, you can savor the spirit of summer well into the fall here on the Crystal Coast. Enjoy the lingering days of summer and then come back for more during the off-season, which offers the same beach vibe and island spirit plus more fabulous reasons to visit Emerald Isle even if summer has ended.
