North Carolina Coast

Engage your Senses on North Carolina’s Coast

From the Outer Banks to Sunset Beach and all points in between, North Carolina’s Coast has been a favorite vacation destination for generations. With exciting events and venues, but also uncrowded beaches, the character and charm of Eastern North Carolina entices visitors year after year. More than 300 miles of sandy beaches and two national seashores beckon beachcombing, exploring lighthouses, boating, or playing in the ocean. Relaxation, rejuvenation and recreation are what you’ll find in Eastern North Carolina. It’s all here, shouldn’t you be?

Engage your senses at Cape Hatteras, named one of 2014’s “Ten Best Beaches in the US” by Dr. Beach, the county’s first national seashore and try some board surfing or beachcombing. Climb any of the coastal lighthouses for amazing ocean views. These lighthouses include Currituck Beach, Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras, Ocracoke Island, Cape Lookout, Oak Island and Old Baldy Lighthouse. Visit the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kitty Hawk and stand where the Wright brothers took flight. While in Kitty Hawk, go fly a kite on the beach, or pick up a surfboard or kayak and experience the Outer Banks from a different vantage point. Watch wild horses run free along towering dunes and stretching shores in Corolla, a must see sight. Charter a fishing boat out of Nags Head and try your luck catching cobia, flounder or mackerel. If relaxation is on your agenda, head out to any of the beaches and enjoy the rolling sand dunes and the sound of waves crashing.

Eastern North Carolina features charming small towns where you can appreciate life at an easier, relaxed pace. Stroll through unique NC coastal towns to shop and dine on the catch of the day. Experience the scenic beauty of Coastal North Carolina along the sandy beaches of the Crystal Coast and climb the Cape Lookout National Seashore Lighthouse. Visit historic sites featuring Revolutionary and Civil War artifacts. Take in a sunrise and sunset at Brunswick Islands where south facing beaches allow you to see both. Check out the Crystal Coast for the nation’s best wreck diving. Enjoy the sound of the waves rolling in; appreciate the sunsets, sand between your toes and feeling of bliss at Emerald Isle Beach. Check out the Battleship North Carolina in Wilmington. Visit New Bern and explore the Birthplace of Pepsi, Tryon Palace and the Firemen’s Museum. Bike, hike, camp or kayak along the Intracoastal Waterway. Spend the day swimming and playing at Topsail or Ocean Isle Beach. See newly hatched baby sea turtles begin their journey to the sea. Tee off at any of the thirty championship golf courses in North Carolina’s Brunswick Islands.

Whether you’re looking for a daring outdoor adventure or a more relaxing escape, a Coastal North Carolina vacation will fill your days with new experiences and unforgettable memories. When the sun sets, you’ll find many charming bed and breakfast inns, popular hotels and beach house rentals to rest up for another day. North Carolina beach vacation rental companies utilize their expertise to help you find the perfect home for your family or group. Some even provide concierge services to aid in finding the activities, attractions and discounts that will make your getaway complete. Plan an unforgettable NC beach getaway along the scenic shores of North Carolina’s Coast.
