9 Reasons Why the Beautiful Holidays are Best in Topsail
It’s a marvelous time of year! The cold nips at your noes and your toes, and the stars reflect the snowflakes that swirl around on the ground below. Everything sparkles and everything is beautiful! Especially in Topsail, NC. The holidays in Topsail are the perfect time for you to visit us! Incase you need a little convincing, here are 9 reasons why you should spend Christmas in Topsail.
1). The Beach
The beach makes everything better! Even the beautiful holidays! When you come and spend the holidays in Topsail with us, you get to not only have family time, sparkle, and celebration…you also get to run on the beach with the wind in your hair and be rejuvenated by the peaceful lapping of the waves just outside your bedroom window at night. And the sunrise over the ocean while your children are peacefully asleep in their beds and you savor your first cup of coffee in quiet is divine! Definitely the way you want to start each day of this holiday season.
2). A Slower Pace of Life
With the beach comes a slower pace of life. Which is exactly what we all need during this crazy season called the holiday season! Peace is so hard to come by these days, but peace is available in abundance at Topsail Beach for everyone! Even though most places become insanely busy during the holiday season, Topsail Island retains its calm way of life, its unhurried days…its serine quiet. If this sounds good to you, then check out Christmas in Topsail this year!
3). Extra Family Time
With the reduced commercialism in Topsail, even over the holiday season, and the uncrowded beaches and streets, you will get to spend extra family time this Christmas in Topsail! People won’t be out doing last minute shopping. No crazy schedules where everyone is running to a different activity. You will get to do everything together this year. Now doesn’t that sound lovely?
4). Star of Wonder, Star of Night
This year the Poplar Grove Plantation in Wilmington, NC, is hosting their Star of Wonder, Star of Night celebration again! The entire plantation will be open after sunset from December 1-16. Experience candlelight tours, stroll the lit and sparkling grounds, roast marshmallows, and even watch classic movies! With admission at only $5 per person, this is a grand family event!
5). A Merry Little Christmas Arts and Crafts Show
A bouncy house. A petting zoo. Santa’s Workshop. Poplar Grove Plantation is a veritable family’s paradise around the holidays! Plus, there are over 100 arts and crafts vendors that will be set up on the decorated grounds of the plantation! Check out more about it over on this page here. And then come and visit us on December 9th!
6). The Sneads Ferry Winterfest
The Sneads Ferry winter festival, or Christmas in the Ferry as it is now called, is a fabulous festival for the whole family. There will be a lighting of trees, music, and even breakfast with Santa! If you have any holiday shopping left to do, there will be a craft fair for you to make the most of and enjoy.

7). The Nutcracker
You have some fabulous holiday traditions already, we know! Does one of them include watching a performance of the Nutcracker? Once you see The Great Wilmington Nutcracker you will want to make it a permanent fixture of your holiday tradition! (Along with celebrating the holidays in Topsail, of course.)
8). The Space
With the beautiful quiet and serenity that comes with having the holidays in Topsail Island, comes space! Literal space, in that Topsail is beautifully uncrowded at the holidays. Plus, the rolling expanse of the ocean that rests your eyes, calms your nerves, and isn’t filled with people (an introverts dream, if you happen to be an introvert!).
9). The Stars
The stars are always beautiful, and always there for us to savor. However, during the holidays the stars take on a special kind of beauty. After all, they are the natural, twinkling lights that all others are modeled after! Plus, at the beach, the stars become magnified by the surface of the ocean creating more rolling, sparkling beauty! Just like the beauty you see in your family over the holidays.
The holidays in Topsail are absolutely magical. You won’t want to miss them! We can’t wait to see your happy, smiling faces here in our community during this holiday season. Hurry and book your vacation with us now, before it is too late!
