Many visitors go straight to the beaches to enjoy sailing, Jet Skiing and fishing. In between swimming and sunning, wander along the Grand Pier and admire the ocean vistas. Look for the pier house, which contains around 500 arcade games and 14 major rides and attractions, including go-karts and a small roller coaster. The pier also has bars and places to eat, such as an ice-cream parlor and an Edwardian-style tearoom.

For more museum time, head further inland to the International Helicopter Museum, home to over 80 helicopters from the United Kingdom, Europe and North America.

Walk down High Street and browse the wares at well-known retail stores and independent boutiques. This street is also known for its restaurants, cafés and bars. Dine in award-winning restaurants or pick up traditional take-away fish and chips to eat on the beach.

Find the Playhouse Theatre on High Street. This beautiful 664-seat theater has a diverse program, including comedy, film and dance performances as well as seasonal pantomime, a musical comedy stage production designed for families.

Among the most popular nearby daytrip destinations is the Gothic Wells Cathedral, which was built between the late 12th century and the late 15th century. This historic cathedral is about 22 miles (35 kilometers) from Weston-super-Mare. Drive through the scenic limestone landscape of the Mendip Hills to get here.
