Sun,Sand & Sea (818 bytes)Insiders and returning visitors understand the appeal of North Carolina's southern coastal region. Warm, semi-tropical weather, sandy beaches, friendly people and Carolina-blue skies, combined with the lure of the sea, make this area paradise. Bathing suits, shorts, golf shirts and sandals are a must for coastal Carolina living. Is it any wonder that visitors from all over the world return year after year or choose to retire here?

Take leisurely walks along the shore. Romp in the gentle waves of the ocean or cruise the area's waterways. Relish the sun's warmth and the sway of ocean breezes.
