Top 5 Summer Activities in Swansboro, NC

The friendly city by the sea has everything from welcoming townsfolk to positive and empathetic shopkeepers.

They help contribute to Swansboro’s ratings as the 88th best place to raise a family out of all 505 North Carolina areas and the #1 spot in all of Onslow County.

However, Swansboro, NC, summertime activities aren’t too shabby either.

When our five-star Trademasters Heating & Cooling team isn’t busy securing our neighbors’ comfort, we’re taking advantage of what this small town offers.

Below are some activities we regularly partake in.

1. Hit the Sand and Surf at Hammocks Beach State Park

Everywhere you turn, white-sand, clear-water beaches line this coastal city, from Bear Island to Shark Tooth Island in the middle of Cape Fear River. However, the famous Hammocks Beach State Park, which spans 1,500 acres, is one of the largest in the area.

This unspoiled beach encompasses the Huggins, Dudley, and Jones islands along the White Oak River. Among them, try your hand at the hiking trails, picnic under the waterfront gazebo, or rent a kayak or canoe for gentle water adventures.

2. Traveling By Land with Mountain Bikes

You don’t have to pay to get a great view.

If you need free summer ideas and already own a bike, take it to one of many mountain biking trails across the town! Consider the 11-mile Emerald Path that stretches from Indian Beach to Bogue Inlet or the shorter Jacksonville-Camp LeJeune Rail-to-Trails that runs 6.3 miles along asphalt.

3. Take on the Seas with Boat Rentals or Tours

Another fun summer activity great for all ages is boat explorations.

Long-time residents who know the Swansboro area, alongside those looking to take their time with leisure activities like fishing, may rent boats from a trusted business like Pogie’s. Others may prefer guided tours with Lady Swan Boat Tours, where you simply sit back with a drink and watch the sunset.

4. Getting the Kiddies Into Summer Camps

If you need more than just a day out to impress and entertain the kiddies, sign them up for one of countless fun-in-the-sun summer camps. Follow affiliate links on Swansboro government pages based on the program that best suits you.

For instance, there are summer art and STEM camps alongside more traditional day camps that are open five days a week.

5. The Meals That Fuel Adventure Seekers

Who says a fun activity can’t include simply sitting at your favorite restaurant with savory food and good company?

Whether you’ve spent the day on the water or out on the town, refuel with lunch or dinner at The Boro Low Country Kitchen where you can dine on local seafood caught right off the pier served in a traditional southern style. There’s also The Boro serving coastal cuisines, pasta, steaks and more.

Master the Summer!

Although the small town only comprises 1.3 square miles of land and water, countless activities span Swansboro, NC.

Don’t forget to keep your itinerary updated and call Trademasters Heating & Cooling at (252) 503-2760 so you always return home to a cool climate!

Contacted Trademasters in the morning and they arrived the same afternoon. David performed an initial inspection of the HVAC system and provided me with his professional recommendation. He gave me a detailed breakdown and price for must have services, as well as additional recommendations to make the system function more efficiently. David was professional and detail oriented throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Trademasters (David) to my friends and neighbors.

Trademasters saved us today! After discovering a leak in our AC drain pipe, David was able to get out to us within an hour and had the leaking pipe replaced within the same visit. David was fast and professional. He took the time to take pictures and explain what happened (builder error). With his help, we were able to contain the damages and begin restoration immediately. We are so thankful to David and Trademasters for their quick response and professionalism.

This is an update from my review recently. Joey returned my call immediately, scheduled the maint. visit. David was here about 2 hrs. checking out the entire unit. Before he left we spoke about a few concerns with dust in the house. He was genuinely concerned, found what may be contributing to the issue. I have total confidence restored in their work and service. Thank you

This company has top-notch employees! Within two days they were at my house fixing my air conditioning. Once they Started fixing the unit they realized it was going to be a lot more than they expected. These two gentlemen stayed until 9:45 PM on a Friday night to ensure the job was done. I will highly recommend this company to anyone! Thank you so much!

Joey was God sent! We own a townhome in Swansboro, NC and we were in Ohio when we noticed our WIFI thermostat wasn’t working on a Friday morning. When I started calling Heating Contractors no one could help me until Monday. Then I called Trademasters Heating & Air and Joey (the owner) answered the phone. He said he could be out later that afternoon and he was!!! Joey had to work through our neighbor and us over the phone. He had no problem with this and he was so nice and professional. He found our problem in our air handler and fixed it promptly and got our WIFI thermostat back up and running!!! His pricing was so reasonable! I would highly recommend Trademasters Heating & Air. Thank you again Joey!!
