Redcar is a family coastal resort with a good range of accommodation, cafes and shops. Children are well catered for with playground, BMX track and indoor and outdoor funfairs.

The RNLI Zetland Museum houses the world's oldest surviving lifeboat, the 'Zetland'. Built in South Shields for the people of Redcar in 1802 and was responsible for saving over 500 lives during it's service. It was of course in service some 22 years before the formation of the R.N.L.I. in 1824.

South Gare is a vantage point for observing shipping on the Tees; the sand dunes have good wildlife interest.
