Fishing, Pac Man, and Ice Cream

Fishing, Pac-Man, and Ice Cream

You’re probably wondering, what on earth fishing, Pac-Man, and Ice Cream have in common. Thankfully the Ocean Isle Beach Pier has brought these things and many more family fun activities together in one great place. Whether you want to try your luck wetting a line or being a pinball wizard there is something for everyone on the pier. With choices ranging from pizza, ice cream or cold soda… the pier has you covered. Don’t worry, that diet will be there when you get back to work on Tuesday. Of course you don’t have to fish or play the arcade to make wonderful memories. Watching the waves roll in off the Atlantic is just as much an Ocean Isle Beach tradition as fishing. Enjoy!

Admission is a dollar for adults and fifty cents for kids. Fishing rods can be rented for eight dollars.

Board Games

Dinner and Monopoly

School is back in session in most of NC, and probably about to start, or in session in your area. Labor Day isn’t just a day off from our hectic work and school schedules. We hope it’s a chance for you to spend some extra time with family and loved ones.
