Visit Fort Macon

Plan to stop by Fort Macon this Memorial Weekend. No admission or parking fee to enjoy this state park. When you take a tour, take your time and have a tour guide show you the grounds. There are cannons galore as well as great informative videos to begin your visit. There is history on the stairs, walls and even the doors. Be sure to not miss an inch of your trip back in history.


Get Your Grill On 

Conjure up your inner grill master, fire up the grill and enjoy some tasty food with family and friends. Get ready to serve up delicious Memorial Day recipes such as burgers, hot dogs, steaks, BBQ chicken, local seafood, kabobs and much more. Add some classic sides and favorite desserts to make it even better. Never forget to remember the reason we are celebrating on this weekend.


Watch Fireworks

Celebrate Memorial Weekend in Atlantic Beach. The Town sponsors the annual fireworks display which will be on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 9PM along the boardwalk at the Circle beach access. Take your chairs to watch comfortably, but please no pets or glass containers.

Most Importantly, when you are surrounded by family and friends this weekend, remember the reason for the weekend. Some have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country! Happy Memorial Day! Have a fun and safe weekend!
