Most of us look forward to the warm days and the long weekends that we tend to take during the summer. Maybe you should spend the first three-day weekend of the season at your favorite beach. The Carolinas provide some excellent beach vacation spots.
Wrightsville Beach Headed to Wilmington, NC for a weekend getaway? You are only five miles from Wrightsville Beach. You may even choose to fly into Wilmington International Airport, which is only twelve miles away. Bring the family along for an unforgettable adventure of paddle boarding, scuba, surfing, and many more activities. You may even decide to charter a boat to do some fishing around Topsail Island and Wrightsville Beach.
Bald Head Island Would you like to vacation in NC and be surrounded by water? Head over to Bald Head Island. You won’t have to worry about a vehicle since transportation around Bald Head is limited to golf carts, bicycles, or “Pat and Charlie” (your own two feet). You will get to enjoy 14 miles of sand and surf and spend restful evenings in your own cottage.
Myrtle Beach Along our beach trek, we cross into South Carolina and stop at Myrtle Beach. This is a quite famous championship golf resort and beach recreation area. While Dad plays golf, Mom can take the kids on a dolphin watch, paddle boarding, and jet skis for older kids and parents. If you had rather fish, there are many rivers, creeks and marshes, plus the intracoastal waterway.
Hilton Head Traveling farther along the South Carolina coastline we come across another quite famous vacation area – Hilton Head. Here you will find more world-class golf courses and pristine beaches. Family fun at Hilton Head includes dolphin watch nature cruises, guided trail rides, and many other activities. For adult fun you can choose from a variety of restaurants and lounges featuring entertainment ranging from live bands to comedy.
With four brief paragraphs about a couple of the many beaches in North and South Carolina, you can be sure that many details and vacation spots were left out. The general idea is to “whet your appetite” to spend many of your summer weekends, and maybe even a vacation or two, at our beaches. If you are from either of these states, you would enjoy a weekend trip. If planning a vacation, welcome to the beautiful beaches of the Carolinas.
