We had the opportunity to spend a couple days at Carolina Beach. It’s been a few years since we’d been to the beach and, despite living in North Carolina for more than twenty years, we had never been to Carolina Beach. The main attraction, for us, was the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, just a few miles away.
Carolina Beach is a lovely little town with a beautiful beach and boardwalk. Unlike many popular beach towns, where older buildings are razed to make way for high-rise hotels and chain restaurants, Carolina Beach still has many older buildings and a lot of character. We took advantage of our off season visit to enjoy fresh seafood and a couple strolls down the boardwalk. A great time was had by all.
