Wilmington is one of the most beautiful places to be this time of year; what could be better? The beaches, the food and the people make for not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live. The unique thing about Wilmington, is there are a multitude of beaches that are each different in their own way. Wrightsville Beach, Kure Beach and Carolina Beach should be on everyone’s list of places to visit and here’s why.
The best part about Wrightsville, is that everything you could possible need is located directly on the island. Not only is it accessible, it is one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches in North Carolina. The blue waters, delicious restaurants of all varieties and nightlife are what attract most people to this delightful place. There is a numerous amount of activities year round that are available to everyone. Standup paddle boarding, amazing surf and fishing are just a few reasons why you have to visit this amazing place.
While Kure Beach is a smaller beach, it is one of the best places to go to unwind and relax. Not only is the oldest fishing pier on the Atlantic coast located here; there is an oceanfront park and a slew of summer events! This beach is known for its way of bringing the family closer together and giving its visitors a way to wind down and relax.
Carolina Beach is one of a kind, and if you go there you’ll understand why. There is a seaside boardwalk filled with family fun and incredible dining. There is a state park with some of the most beautiful scenery and miles of stunning beach. The state aquarium is located here and is filled with hundreds of different species and a numerous amount of festivals and events. What makes Carolina Beach so unique is that camping is allowed on the beach and you can even drive your SUV out onto the beach right by the water! This place is a must see.
