Wrightsville Beach, just east of Wilmington, NC, has four miles of the most beautiful warm sand beaches you will find on the North Carolina coastline. Spread on the sunblock and tan in the midday sun, stake a few poles and string a net for volleyball, or break out the board and crash with the waves along the shore. The weather and shoreline are perfect for whatever plans you have. If you're an adventurer, explore the shallow pools along the shore between low and high tide, climb the dunes and swales left from warm winds, collect shells along the wrack lines, or walk the fields of Indian blankets and yucca plants. Or, if you want to venture further from the coast, take a boat to Harbor Island and explore evergreen shrub forests scattered with red cedars, oaks, and dogwoods. During the off-season, bring your dog — or dogs — with you!
