Fun for Kids???

We are staying in Oak Island in July. This is our first time. We have a 5 year old and 8 year old. What fun activities are available in the close area for them to do? (Arcades, aquariums, etc) I have heard we should take a ferry to another place/island and there are tons of things to do. Any ideas??

Keep in mind Oak Island is not a Myrtle Beach. It'a mainly a small town. Beside the fun that goes along with the beach ,we have one Putt-Putt course on the island. But Fort Fisher Aquarium is a ferry ride from Southport to Carolina Beach, and is great for kids and adults.

Check out the local Recreation Department. They have camps, trips, kayak trips, and lots of family things during the summer. They also have a Ocean Ed Center and Nature Center that are free to visit.


And don't forget the free stuff - go crabbing, fly a kite, build a sandcastle, fish, swim, etc. Have a great trip.
