While perusing the shops at Atlantic Station, stop in and visit Kites Unlimited.  In the warmer months, Atlantic Beach’s skyline is showered with beautiful displays of bright-colored kites sailing gracefully in the sun.  Kites Unlimited caters to that very aesthetic, offering a wide arrangement of kites, both for sport and leisure.  Also available in their store are unique gifts, toys, and puzzles.  Stock up and enjoy the Carolina Kite Festival, held every October at the Sheraton Hotel.
