At the beach and at Lake Lure Water Park, people cool off with a dip in the clear waters and views of the Blue Ridge Mountain. This area has a traditional beach and a children’s park with a waterslide and water attractions. If you don’t feel like diving into the water, you can always have a picnic in the shade of the park.
Alternatively, you can build sandcastles with your kids and have fun. You’ll also find beach houses selling towels, chairs, sunscreen, floats, toys, and more.
