One of the most iconic attractions (with the sweetest history) on Topsail Island is the Topsail Beach Skating Rink. The Skating Rink is definitely one of my favorite places to go with friends and family. Doris and Sonny Jenkins built in the rink in 1964. Thousands of people have been loving it ever since. The rink is open from 7-10pm (and other times for scheduled parties). My nine year-old son, Gage, and I enjoyed skating earlier this week. We had the privilege of seeing Doris Jenkins and the disco ball lights! You can learn more about the Skating Rink here:
I also recommend Sonny’s Snack and Craft Shop located below the Skating Rink. Dan Arnold manages the shop. He has done a fantastic job of remodeling the shop and filling it with delicious treats and gorgeous crafts.
Be sure to visit both businesses when you’re on the island and visit them on FaceBook too.
