Fitness Friday | Atlantic Beach, North Carolina

Festiva destinations are located near some of the best natural areas in the country. The ocean, the mountains, the lakes and rivers of this great country are all nearby and yours for exploring. That’s why we’ve selected these beautiful places as vacation spots.

And while it may be obvious that time off is good for your health, did you know that timeshares themselves make it easy to stay current with your fitness routine while on vacation?

A recent survey from the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) and conducted by research group Leger, found that more than half (54%) of Americans enjoy fitness activities while on vacation, and timeshare owners are leading this group with nine out of 10 stating they perform fitness activities on vacation. In addition to their proximity to fitness-friendly activities, which we’ll discuss shortly, timeshares offer fully equipped kitchens for healthy, local, fresh meals, the square footage needed for a quick in room workout without disturbing others, and longer stays with which to try different fitness activities.

On this Fitness Friday, let’s shine a spotlight on some of the fun family activities near our resort locations that you can do to stay active on your next vacation.

Atlantic Beach Activities

Atlantic Beach resides on Bogue Banks, a 22-mile stretch of islands that act as a barrier to mainland North Carolina. These islands face the Atlantic Ocean to the south, which creates both spectacular sunrises and sunsets to view over the horizon. To the west, Cape Lookout’s lighthouse can be seen on clear days, standing magnificently in the sky as a guiding light for sea traffic.

The Crystal Coast offers some of the most exciting fishing on the east coast. Extreme Shark Fishing will definitely get your heart rate up- this isn’t sitting on the dock with a bobber in the water.

Live it up with private island charters. You can hop island to island and discover hidden beaches and wild horses. This is a great way to stay active on your Atlantic Beach vacation!
