I am from NC. I still live here. We have gone to one beach or the other my entire life. The coast of NC is absolutely the greatest place. I love the isolation of areas like Rodanthe or the history of Kill Devil Hills. Harkers Island is such a sleepy, quiet place. Surf City has such a "fishing village" atmosphere. The area around Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores down to Emerald Isle is more of a tourist type stretch with all the fun you can find. You can take your vehicle on the beach at Duck and Corolla. Yeah, I love the NC Coast. You should try our mountains if you like our beaches!!!!!
